Andor Neo sCMOS Camera Supported in Metamorph Microscopy Software

Published: Sep 06, 2011

Belfast, Northern Ireland, 6th September 2011 – Andor Technology plc (Andor), a world leader in scientific imaging and spectroscopy solutions, today announced availability of acquisition drivers for the Neo sCMOS camera within the Meta Imaging Series of software for live cell microscopy from Molecular Devices Inc. The drivers provide support for Andor’s ground breaking new camera technology within both Metamorph® and also the recently launched Metamorph® NX platform.

The ultrasensitive, high speed Neo sCMOS is a new benchmark camera technology, ideally suited to live cell imaging, uniquely offering a combination of 1 electron read noise at 30 frames/sec, a 5.5 megapixel sensor (6.5 µm pixel size) and dual amplifier technology for extended dynamic range performance. The MetaMorph® Software suite of products from Molecular Devices® has been an integral part of the bioresearch imaging community for more than 25 years. Neo is supported from Metamorph version 7.7.5 and in Metamorph NX, and drivers for each are available for purchase direct from Andor Technology.

Dr Colin Coates, Andor’s Imaging Product Manager, said ‘The availability of Neo sCMOS drivers for Metamorph is a significant development step. This feature rich software environment is the acquisition and analysis platform of choice for many imaging labs and facilities worldwide. It is important that a new gold standard detector for live cell microscopy can operate efficiently through this environment.’
