Sona is Andor’s latest high performance sCMOS camera platform, specifically for fluorescence microscopy.
It launches with Sona 4.2B-11 and Sona 2.0B-11 back-illuminated sCMOS models, each featuring 95% Quantum Efficiency (QE) and market-leading vacuum cooling to -45 °C.
Andor’s unique capability to deliver the ultimate in sCMOS sensitivity means signal to noise can be optimized in fluorescence microscopy under conditions of reduced excitation power, thus preserving living cells during extended measurement periods. The superior sensitivity of Sona also compliments reduction of fluorophore concentrations, thus minimally perturbing the cell’s physiology.
