Norwich, UK: Artemis CCD Limited, a leading manufacturer of cooled CCD cameras for low-light applications today launches the FS92 featuring 9.19 million effective pixels in a Type 1 3388 x 2712 pixel array. A combination of high resolution and high sensitivity increases significantly the application options for the scientific user and OEM customer. As with all members of the FS range of cameras a typical read noise of 5 electrons makes the FS92 a perfect choice for low light applications including fluorescence and chemi-luminescence imaging and with the asymmetric pixel binning function, a highly effective detector in optical spectroscopy.

As with previous Artemis CCD Cameras®, the FS92 is fully compatible with all software downloads available on This includes a comprehensive software development kit (SDK) together with LabVIEW drivers and a plugin for the open source image editor, ImageJ.

The FS92 is Peltier cooled to a delta of -25°C below ambient and is available with either a monochrome or colour sensor. By specifying the alternative rectangular body design for those particularly demanding applications, an additional -10°C cooling performance may be achieved. Steve Chambers, Artemis CCD’s CEO said: “The FS92 has been developed in answer to our customer’s requests for the highest resolution chips in the slim-line body style which is the hallmark of the FS range. This camera represents the pinnacle of achievable performance in such a compact package and is available for immediate delivery.”
