pco.flim
Luminescence lifetime imaging camera

The pco.flim camera system is the first luminescence decay time microscopy camera using a two tap CMOS image sensor. Synchronized modulation of pixels and stimulated light enables the analysis of decay times in the range of 100 ps to 100 µs. A broad variety of trigger options allows the camera's integration in versatile fields of applications.

Additional technical information is provided in our data sheet.
