Imagine you could image live cells as close as possible to their native state. Capture even faint fluorescent signal you currently miss. And discover what happens in the time between two subsequent images. Imagine you could get a better view of what really happens in cells!
The Leica DFC9000 sCMOS camera will turn your imagination into reality. This monochrome microscope camera with newest scientificCMOS(sCMOS) sensor technology for fluorescence imaging enables you to image your cells under near-native conditions.
Protect your cells with short exposure times
Capture highly dynamic processes with high-speed acquisition
Get more information in one image with large field of view
The Leica DFC9000 is built with a third-generation sCMOS sensor, currently state-of-the-art on the market. It performs with a quantum efficiency* of up to 82%.
Capture even the faintest, previously undetected fluorescence signals
See processes in the cell in the most realistic detail without unhealthy overexpression of theGFP-coupled protein
Reduce exposure times to a minimum
Protect your cells, reducing stress, and minimizing phototoxicity effects
Generate more reliable results with happyGFP-expressing cells
Protect your cells with high near-infrared sensitivity
Use red-emitting fluorescence tags to further reduce cell damage
Observe your cells with an outstanding spectral response of more than 60% quantum efficiency at 750 nm wavelength
*quantum efficiency depends on wavelength of light
The Leica DFC9000 is designed for high-end fluorescence imaging of live cells such as time-lapse experiments.
Less noise means a better image. In technical terms, a high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) provides you with a crisp fluorescence signal against a dark background.
The Leica DFC9000 is a highly sensitive sCMOS camera:
High quantum efficiency over the entire light spectrum with a maximum of 82%
Low read noise of 0.9 e- at 216 MHz pixel clocking rate
Cooled sensor; cooling to 0° Celsius by air circulation
These features make the Leica DFC9000 also ideally suited for our lightsheet systemLeica TCS SP8 DLS.

Acquire fewer images
If you want to acquire tile scans or mosaics, fewer individual images are required
Save time and protect your samples
Conduct your imaging orchestra
The Leica DFC9000 is part of a carefully tuned microscope platform capable of being triggered at high speed to protect cells from unnecessary light and to have filter changes take place in shortest time.
Leica Application Suite X software
Triggering is based on Leica Microsystems’ flexible electronic box system and Leica Application Suite X (LASX) software.
Flexible: Trigger up to 2 cameras with the electronic box
Simultaneous: Combine the camera with DualView or Gemini for simultaneous acquisition of 2 wavelengths
