OVERVIEW

The Andor iXon Ultra and iXon3 portfolio encompass a number of model variations, offering solutions for a wide range of application requirements.

iXon Ultra 897 – Ultimate Sensitivity & High Speed Performance

The new iXon Ultra platform takes the popular back-illuminated 512 x 512 frame transfer sensor and overclocks readout to 17 MHz, pushing speed performance to an outstanding 56 full frames per second. Features include:

  • Fastest 512 x 512 back-illuminated EM-CCD on the market.
  • Intelligent algorithms filter clock induced charge events from the background in real time or post-processing.
  • Optional EX2 Technology extends quantum efficiency response.

Ideal for applications that require:

  • Speed challenged low-light detection such as spinning disk confocal microscopy, single molecule tracking, ion signaling, cell motility and single photon counting.

iXon3 897 – Outstanding Sensitivity

The iXon3 897 delivers thermoelectric cooling down to -100° C to offer a superbly lowest clock induced charge noise. Features include:

  • Integration into *cellSens® software.
  • Cropped Sensor Mode provides for continuous imaging with fastest possible temporal resolution.
  • Thermoelectric cooling to -100°C.
  • Optional Fringe Suppression feature to reduce etaloning in the near-infrared region.

Ideal for applications that require:

  • Single molecule detection, super-resolution microscopy & TIRF microscopy.

iXon3 888 – Large Field of View and Sensitivity

The iXon3 888 combines a large field of view with single photon detection capability and >90% quantum efficiency. Features include:

  • A  1024 x 1024 frame transfer format offers unequalled thermoelectric cooling down to -95°C.
  • Intuitive Single Photon Counting modes to overcome multiplicative noise.
  • Selectable amplifier outputs – EM-CCD and conventional.

Ideal for applications that require:

  • In vivo luminescence, FRET.

iXon3 860 High Speed and Sensitivity

The iXon3 860 is designed for very rapid imaging of low light events by a 128 x 128 sensor, combining >500 fps with single photon detection capability and >90% quantum efficiency.

Features include:

  • RealGain™ feature provides absolute EM-CCD gain selectable directly from a linear and quantitative scale
  • Count Convert feature quantitatively captures and converts data in electrons or incident photons.

Ideal for applications that require:

  • Calcium flux, voltage sensitive dyes.

iXon3 885 High Speed and Sensitivity

The iXon3 885’s megapixel sensor format and 8 x 8 micron pixel size presents an attractive combination of field of view and high-resolution, offering excellent Nyquist oversampling for cell microscopy. Features include:

  • 35 MHz readout for 31 frames per second at full megapixel resolution.
  • Significantly higher sensitivity to red-emitting dyes such as CY5, mCherry, dsRed and Alexa680.
  • Count Convert feature quantitatively captures and converts data in electrons or incident photons.

Ideal for applications that require:

  • Selective/single plane illumination microscopy (SPIM) & FRET/FRAP.
