With the addition of two new models, PCO now provides eight sCMOS-cameras, one for almost every application. The new pco.edge 3.1 and pco.edge 4.2LT have become our new entry-level cameras.
Dr. Gerhard Holst, Head of Research at PCO: "Our objective when developing these entry-level sCMOS models was to provide researchers with small budgets the opportunity to use world class cameras while pursuing their research."

In point of care diagnostics, the so called "Lab-on-a-Chip" devices proved that they have huge advantages compared to normal large scale laboratories. These micro-systems are highly miniaturized, complex devices, dealing with only small volumes (a few µl) of reagents and high-throughputs (several ml/s). Consequently, they provide lower turnaround times and costs .

Capturing and documenting a true-to-life representation of your sample is an important aspect of microscopy, achieved using the digital camera. Digital cameras specialized for microscopy come in all shapes and sizes, and selecting the best camera for your system can be a daunting task. It can be of help to consider four main features that essentially dictate camera performance: color reproduction, sensitivity, live image quality and resolution. Being aware of what these parameters really mean for your chosen application will guide you to a camera to complete your microscope system and truly enhance your experience.

Leica Application Suite Advanced Fluorescence (LAS AF) 3.2 focuses on 3D analysis, 3D measurements and 3D visualization. The 3D functionalities are especially interesting for users of Leica SR GSD 3D: They make Ground State Depletion (GSD) data visible as volume rendered images and therefore add a third dimension to super-resolution images.

Light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) is a technique with a vivid development [1, 2]. In contrast to epi-illumination microscopy the sample is illuminated with a thin light sheet orthogonally to the detection path. Most often the sheet is formed by rapidly scanning a laser beam across the sample. This illumination yields intrinsic optical sectioning and reduction of photobleaching and phototoxicity since excitation is limited to fluorophores inside the observation plane. This is particularly beneficial for long term imaging in developmental biology and reduces image background [3-5].

The number of pixels in image sensors is of central importance for the image quality. There is a general tendency towards higher resolutions, because they are associated with higher information content. Higher resolutions mean smaller pixels. The sensitivity of the pixels is another important feature (characteristic) of an image sensor. Larger pixel image sensors are said to be more sensitive than smaller pixel sensors. This article explores the relationship between the pixel size of an image sensor and its sensitivity.
