Photometrics, a division of Roper Scientific, has launched the Cascade:128, the newest in the company’s line of Cascade CCD cameras.

According to Photometrics, the Cascade:128 can collect more than 500 full frames of true 16-bit data per second using a high-QE, back-illuminated CCD with on-chip multiplication gain, which provides added sensitivity for low-light, live-cell microscopy. The company said the camera is particularly suited for neuroscience and single-molecule fluorescence imaging.
