High sensitivity from VIS to NIR
A One-of-a-kind Solution for Dual Wavelength Imaging
With the ORCA-D2, you can now capture dual wavelength images
simultaneously, at wavelength ranges of your choice, and with a wide
field of view − a unique combination that simplifies the challenges of
conventional FRET and ratio imaging techniques. The ORCA-D2
contains two CCD devices. Interchangeable optical blocks are used
to set the wavelength ranges for each CCD. During image capture,
the camera automatically corrects focus, alignment and color shifting
to produce high-quality images.
Other benefits of the ORCA-D2 include high sensitivity and low noise,
courtesy of Hamamatsu's advanced CCD cooling technology; wide
dynamic range; standard IEEE1394b interface; and Hamamatsu's
proprietary vacuum-sealed chamber technology, which promotes
long-term maintenance-free operation with even the most demanding
applications.
APPLICATIONS
Ratio imaging
Single and dual wavelength fluorescence microscopy,
FRET
Blue to NIR fluorescence applications
Colocalization and FISH applications
Dual wavelength TIRF microscopy, real-time
confocal microscopy
Combined transmission and fluorescence imaging
Multi-focal point imaging microscopy
FEATURES
Simultaneous capture of wide-field dual wavelength images
Dual wavelength imaging
Selectable wavelengths
The unique camera design makes it
possible to capture simultaneous dual
wavelength images with a full field of
view, even when the intensities differ
significantly. Such images are difficult
to obtain with conventional FRET or
ratio imaging techniques.
By changing optical blocks, you can
select your wavelengths of interest.
Hamamatsu offers three types of
optical blocks for different wavelength
ranges.

Ca2+ measurement using YellowCameleon 3.6 (optical block: DM 510 nm)
The following images are an example of ratio imaging. Separated CFP and YFP (FRET) are measured with dual CCD devices. This sequence observed
the YellowCameleon 3.6 (Ca2+ sensor based on CFP-YFP FRET) expressed Ins-1 cell response with a depolarizing stimulus.

Easy setup
Auto-correction of focus and alignment
Focus adjustment
During dual wavelength image acquisition, the camera will
automatically correct image alignment, color mismatch, etc.
Hardware and special software work together to adjust focus* and
alignment to your experimental setup. Calibration results are
saved in the software, eliminating the need to readjust for the
same setup.
Images with different focal plane can be acquired at the same
time through the use of the camera's special software and
adjustable CCD device position.

Quantum efficiency (%)
Two modes (high light, low light) are available for different
situations. Low light mode provides high sensitivity over a wide
spectral range from visible to near-infrared.
Max. quantum efficiency over 70 %
The ORCA-D2 offers high sensitivity from visible to near-infrared
with its ER-150 interline CCD. In low light mode, sensitivity at 700
nm is nearly twice that of the ICX285* device used in most other
scientific CCD cameras.
