Andor Technology plc (Andor),
a world leader in scientific imaging, spectroscopy and microscopy solutions,
today announced the support for all Andor imaging EMCCD cameras within JPK Instruments
AG’s (JPK) products for nano-biotechnology.
With the addition of support for Andor’s high-performance EMCCD cameras
to the JPK software, true integration is obtained between fluorescence imaging
on the one hand and JPK’s NanoWizard® AFM imaging or NanoTracker™
optical tweezers on the other. Scientists using JPK’s patented DirectOverlay™
functionality can now directly use the images coming from their Andor EMCCD
As an example, single molecule fluorescence detection and high resolution AFM
imaging of single DNA-bound proteins is an application that truly benefits from
the combination of both company’s advanced imaging products.
Existing JPK customers already owning an Andor EMCCD camera can upgrade their
JPK system by purchasing a license for the Andor Linux Software Development
Kit (SDK) as well as the Andor driver for JPK’s camera software.
With the inclusion of full support for iXon+ EMCCD cameras from Andor Technology,
JPK Instruments paves the way for fully integrated AFM and single-molecule fluorescence
Dr. Colin Coates, Imaging Product Manager with Andor Technology said, “This
new cooperation with JPK Instruments represents great news to mutual users of
our high-performance technologies and to the wider bio-imaging community, offering
enhanced potential to interrogate nanoscale environments with accuracy, sensitivity
