The Q-Imaging® Retiga-EXL utilizes a cooled interline CCD and the remarkable speed of Lightwire™ 800 (an optimized version of the IEEE-1394b protocol). This low-noise camera’s 1.4-million-pixel spatial resolution and 14-bit digitization are ideally suited for bio-imaging applications such as live-cell microscopy. The Retiga-EXL provides QImaging’s hallmark combination of high performance and ease of use, enabling researchers to acquire quantitative results from their samples in a matter of seconds.
