FLI Kepler KL4040 CMOS Front Illuminated Camera

The KL4040 scientific CMOS camera has the same pixel size and imaging area as the popular 16803 CCD Sensor. What makes is special is that it has half the noise and 40% higher quantum efficiency than 16803. This Kepler cooled CMOS cameras provides ultra-high sensitivity, extremely low noise, and high frame rates, all at a game-changing price to performance ratio.

The KL4040 is ideal for low-light applications including Confocal Microscopy, Light Sheet Microscopy, TIRF and GFP, Orbital Debris Detection, Super-Resolution Microscopy.

Supplied with three operational modes: High Gain, Low Gain, and High Dynamic Range. Depending on which mode you choose to use your can either shoot 24 (HDR) or 48 (LDR) frames per second at full resolution. In the High Dynamic Range mode, you will be able to capture 14.3 stops of Dynamic range for in both long exposure and video modes
