We offer a range of image splitters from our partner company Cairn Research Ltd. for simultaneous multi-channel imaging on one camera sensor. This offers a major benefit over manual or electronic filter changers, as there is no longer need to pause acquisition while the filter position is changed. Furthermore, it allows your camera to be operated in fast stream modes. All devices have simple user friendly controls and excellent pixel registration between channels (>99.9% using sCMOS or large format EMCCDs).
The channels will typically be defined by bandpass interference filters from the Chroma Technology range to allow multi-wavelength imaging. However, the separation can also be made on the basis of polarization state, focal depth or any other modality which requires the same field of view to be recorded under different conditions. The image splitter comparison chart below shows the most common products. On top, it is possible to combine the image splitter with a multi-camera adapter to produce six or even eight channel devices.
