  • Hamamatsu Photonics invites you to visit the Microscience Microscopy Congress hosted at Manchester Central, UK from 1st-4th July 2019. Visit us at stand 406 to see our latest technology in action, with live demonstrations of the NEW ORCA-Fusion digital CMOS Camera and W-View Gemini-2C image splitting optics.

    We look forward to seeing you at our stand where our experts will be happy to discuss any product or application needs you may have.

    Your Hamamatsu Team


    ORCA-Fusion Digital CMOS Camera

    Imagine the combined benefits of EMCCD and sCMOS without the compromises... now it’s a reality.

    With a new sensor designed from the ground up, Hamamatsu Photonics have taken the strengths of EMCCD and sCMOS sensors to engineer the most advanced sCMOS camera available today; the ORCA-Fusion digital CMOS Camera.

    Balancing the complex nuances of camera features to provide beautiful images and robust data at all light levels, especially in tough low-light conditions.


    Live Demonstration

    The variety of scientific cameras available for microscopy increases each year, as new technologies are developed and refined. There are electron-multiplying cameras, back-thinned cameras, CMOS cameras, CCD cameras, and it is often difficult to know which options to choose. Choosing the correct camera is not usually determined by personal preference, but rather a requirement dictated by the application and conditions where each camera performs best.

    Hamamatsu will be running a workshop on our booth where we will explore the differences between the latest generation sCMOS camera and a back-thinned EM-CCD camera; two of the forerunners in modern scientific imaging.

    We hope that you will leave with a better understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of key camera technologies, as well as how they can be applied to challenging microscopy applications.


    W-View Gemini-2C

    Dual channel optics are simple… in principle. In practice, designing a device that enables quick, stable alignment and delivers images with minimal distortions over a large field of view requires attention to detail. The W-VIEW GEMINI-2C gets the details right and more.

    The W-VIEW GEMINI-2C is our dual camera, dual channel optics system - engineered with super resolution quality, while simultaneously offering versatility, expandability and ease of use. The W-VIEW GEMINI-2C turns a simple optical concept into an elegant and useful tool that can help maximize the information content of every image acquisition.


    ImagEM X2 EM-CCD Camera

    The ImagEM X2 is an extremely versatile camera that quietly delivers 70 frames/s at full frame and up to 1076 frames/s with analog binning and regions of interest. With very high signal to noise in near dark conditions and extremely low dark current, the ImagEM X2 enables quantitative ultra-low light imaging both for long integration times and at high speed.

    Hamamatsu has taken the beloved 512 × 512 EM-CCD sensor and created a masterfully redesigned camera that delivers maximum speed and precision performance.




    ORCA-Flash4.0 V3 Digital CMOS Camera

    The ORCA-Flash4.0 V3 expertly handles applications ranging from the acquisition of beautiful scientific images to experiments that demand detection, quantification, and speed.

    Improved on-board FPGA processing enables intelligent data reduction and highly refined in-camera, pixel-level calibrations. In combination with increased USB 3.0 frame rates, innovative triggering capabilities, a patented light sheet read-out mode, and individual camera noise characterization, the ORCA-Flash4.0 V3 is the precision instrument for imaging.


    Board level Cameras


    Hamamatsu OEM cameras implement cutting edge scientific CMOS (sCMOS), time delayed integration–CCDs (TDI-CCDs) as well as standard and completely custom CCDs and CMOS detectors. We excel at extracting the best performance from any image sensor.


    Scientific CMOS board cameras

    Designed for targeted, high performance imaging our CMOS cameras deliver high speed, low noise and high resolution. With ease of connectivity, low power consumption, readily implementable form factors and scalable feature sets, Hamamatsu board cameras provide quality and reliability tailored to your budget.






    TDI board level cameras

    From our fast, low-noise TDI sensors to advanced camera engineering capabilities that optimize sensor performance, these board-level cameras allow you to harness decades of in-house design and manufacturing experience in your next OEM project.







    InGaAs Cameras

    Hamamatsu’s InGaAs cameras bridge the gap between NIR wavelengths in the 950-1700 nm range, where silicon detectors are no longer sensitive. Our products capture images with QVGA to VGA resolution, and our extensive experience with InGaAs sensors allows us to offer cameras with exquisite image contrast and quality.






    ORCA-spark Digital CMOS Camera

    The ORCA-spark is a high-sensitivity digital CMOS camera using a 2.3 megapixel CMOS sensor. It has global shutter to achieve a high-speed readout of 65 frames/s, making it ideal for imaging fast moving objects.It also delivers readout noise levels as low as 6.6 electrons, enabling imaging with high S/N ratio even when capturing images of dark objects. Applications include Low-light-level imaging, Microscope observation and X-ray scintillator readout.





    Laser- Driven Light Source

    After completing the acquisition of Energetiq in 2017, Hamamatsu will also have on display the revolutionary single-light source technology called the LDLS™ Laser-Driven Light Source that enables extreme high brightness and stability over a broad spectral range, from 170nm through visible and beyond. This system has been specifically designed for demanding imaging and spectroscopy applications.


    Mini Spectrometers

    Hamamatsu Photonics offers an extensive range of Mini, Micro and MEMS Spectrometers, which cover the spectral range from UV to NIR. They are suitable for a diverse range of applications including medical devices, environmental and colour monitoring, food, agriculture and chemical analysis, and more. To meet growing market demands we also offer an OEM micro-spectrometer head, which can be easily incorporated into compact, portable measurement instruments.

    Now with a line-up boasting more than 20 devices, you will easily find the optimum solution to bring your product concept to reality.
