pco.panda 4.2 bi
High resolution back illuminated sCMOS camera

To see or not to see: if every single photon counts, the new pco.panda 4.2 bi can lead you to the answer. Enabled by PCO’s new back illuminated (bi) sensor and based on the latest innovations in sCMOS technology, the pco.panda 4.2 bi reaches a quantum efficiency of up to 95 %. This makes the camera perfectly suited for low light conditions without the need for active cooling. The high resolution of 2048 x 2048 pixel with 6.5 x 6.5 µm² pixel size allow greater detail diversity and highly qualitative images. The addition of the USB 3.1 interface provides direct power delivery via USB cable. PCO’s renowned sCMOS features and the camera’s compact dimensions of 65 x 65 x 65 mm³ make the pco.panda 4.2 bi ideal for countless applications, e. g. in the fields of microscopy and life science.
