Fluorescence camera HiCAM Fluo
HiCAM Fluo from Lambert Instruments is a particularly powerful yet compact fluorescence camera that is connected to fluorescence microscopes.
Its exposure time can be adjusted down to the nanosecond range to image even fastest phenomena. By using high-quality Gen III amplifiers (18 or 25 mm), imaging down to the detection of single photons is possible. The amplifiers can be adapted to the respective application (UV to NIR) by a number of possible photocathodes.
HiCAM Fluo can also be used as a high-speed shutter by gating. This reduces the effective exposure time and allows motion blur to be reduced. The fanless cooling system, with its virtually non-existent vibrations, also ensures an improved signal-to-noise ratio and thus optimum image quality.
Thanks to its compact aluminum housing, the HiCAM Fluo is very handy and, with the help of its universal connections, it can be used with basically any fluorescence microscope. The images are streamed directly via a CXP (CoaXPress) interface with four CXS connections (6.25 Gbit/s each). The associated software not only controls the camera and measurement parameters, but also data processing, amplifier power and gating.

STAMINA from Lambert Instruments is, like LIFA, a complete system. However, up to nine cameras can be used simultaneously. At the same time, the user-friendly software is compatible with a wide range of cameras and offers the option of easily integrating your own cameras into the imaging system.
STAMINA can also be inversely integrated into existing setups using API (Application Programming Interface) with compatible platforms MATLAB, LabView or Python3 (64-bit).
STAMINA synchronizes recordings so that all imaging data is streamed directly to disk, making only disk space a limitation.
Almost any camera can be integrated into the STAMINA setup, both an in-house Lambert Instruments product and an existing camera.
