pco.edge 4.2 bi
at the cutting edge with cooled back-illuminated sCMOS

Innovations aren’t always about having that one big new idea. Unique technology also comes from evolution, combining existing and new technology. When our tried and trusted pco.edge series pools forces with modern back illuminated (bi) sensor technology, the result is our pco.edge 4.2 bi.

The adjustable cooling system allows the use of air or water to cool the sensor down to -25 °C. At this temperature, the dark current is reduced to 0.2 e-/pixel/s.

High resolution and 6.5 x 6.5 μm² pixel size guarantees high-quality images with quantum efficiency up to 95 %.  The pco.edge 4.2 bi incorporates a powerful USB 3.1 interface complementing its performance.
