QImaging Retiga R1

QImaging RETIGA R1

1.4 Megapixel Scientific CCD USB 3.0 Camera

The Retiga R1 has the technical features you need in a scientific camera to improve limits of detection and quantification. More importantly, the camera becomes an intuitive extension of your imaging system, smoothly delivering data from the super speed USB3.0 interface to your computer.

Inside the R1 camera, QImaging introduces Intelligent Quantification™ – on camera intelligence features that correct for defective pixels, remove accumulated dark current, and make high dynamic range imaging available. Fast 50 MHz pixel digitization increases camera frame rate to give you all the speed you need for any laboratory imaging challenge.

A great camera deserves great software for acquisition. Ocular™ is QImaging’s all new imaging platform that’s included in every camera purchase and ready to become your go-to capture program.

Product Features: 

  • 75% peak QE combined with low noise electronics reveals the weak signals missed by industrial cameras
  • Increased exposure time and binning enables detection of the faintest signals with deep sensor cooling
  • 50MHz two port readout delivers frame rate for finding, focusing and imaging samples
  • Reduce photobleaching and phototoxicity on samples.
  • Intelligent Quantification™ provides advanced real-time FPGA algorithms to deliver better image quality
