EMCCD Technology Lumintek's EMCCD technology provides a cost effective solution for photon limited biological applications, making the technology available to any laboratory. Lumintek provide two EMCCDs the 640x480 pixel VGA Vision and the 1 Megapixel MP Vision. Both these cameras provide outstanding EMCCD performance in one of the smallest packages available on the market today. Both Lumintek EMCCDs are incredibly powerful and versatile and can be used in a number of biological applications.

To harness the power of the EMCCD Lumintek provide its unique easy to use imaging software with each camera. The Lumintek Image32 image processing software is designed with life scientists in mind and provides the features and functions you would expect and is compatible with popular third party software.
