Photometrics Camera Technology Workshop

Home / Photometrics Camera Technology Workshop


Camera Training Course

The role of the camera as a detector in life science imaging has grown immensely over the last 25 years. As sensor and on-board processing routines increase, it is vital that we understand not only how to push these devices but how to obtain consistent and reliable data from them.

Photometrics is a committed educator and has historically given camera courses in cooperation with imaging facilities for advanced users and application specialists from the microscopy and life science field.

We further extend the course to be able to include early career researchers as well, providing them with technical background to support their experimental planning and design.

The course will cover the following topics:

  • Resolution and field of view
  • Gain and dynamic range
  • Sensitivity and spectral response
  • Noise and signal to noise
  • CCD/ CMOS and EMCCD architecture and differences
  • Speed and interfaces
  • Advanced triggering
  • Multichannel splitting devices
