The Andor (Belfast, UK) Neo 5.5 megapixel sCMOS camera is a unique - 40°C vacuum cooled platform designed around a low noise 5.5 megapixel sensor with 6.5 μm pixels and a 22mm diameter to drive lowest possible dark noise. Ideal for cell microscopy, astronomy, digital pathology, and high content screening, the Neo 5.5 delivers 30 fps sustained or up to 100 fps burst mode to its internal 4GB memory. The Rolling and Global shutter feature further enhances application flexibility, Global shutter in particular offering an ideal means to simply and efficiently synchronize the Neo with other 'moving' devices such as stages or light switching sources and eliminating the possibility of spatial distortion when imaging fast moving objects.
