Atik Cameras launches TE-77 advanced scientific imaging solution using new CCD technology

Atik Cameras, a specialist designer and manufacturer of scientific and industrial imaging solutions, has launched the first in its advanced imaging solutions, investing in new CCD (charged coupled device) technology.

The TE-77 paves the way for an exciting new series of advanced performance, scientific imaging cameras, capable of remarkable sensitivity.

This impressive CCD sensor boasts large square pixels of 24 µm², over a 12.3 mm² sensor area. Coupled with reliable cooling delta of -60°C, this camera achieves incredibly low read noise, enabling detection of the faintest signals. Furthermore, the deep full well depth of 300,000 e- full well (600,000 e- summing well) means there is minimal saturation when imaging, revealing exceptional detail. It is perfect for the most demanding applications such as chemilumine-scence, fluorescence, spectroscopy, microscopy, and bioluminescence. The design and engineering of the TE-77 complements this advanced sensor from Teledyne e2v.

What sets Atik Cameras apart is the collaborative customisation service offered with each solution. The TE-77 can be supplied with a wide range of bespoke options including the choice to add a 45mm, bi-stable high speed scientific shutter, capable of 20.0 millisecond opening times. The case can be adapted to suit specific require-ments or supplied as a simple PCB board set solution. Atik provides a comprehensive soft-ware development kit, complete with expert integration assistance from the in-house engine-ering team. In addition, all production takes place in Atik’s ISO-9001 accredited, European manufacturing facilities.

Atik Cameras director Dr Panos Kapetanopoulos commented: “The TE-77 heralds an exciting new chapter for Atik Cameras, as the company builds on its extensive scientific imaging expertise to develop a highly advanced camera series, suitable for the most challenging of applications.”
