Leveraging the speed, sensitivity, and radiation hardness of the proprietary K2 Summit® sensor, extend your research to the shortest time resolution with fully usable frames.

Counting and in-situ studies
  • 14.2 Megapixel direct detection sensor reads out at 400 fps with each frame delivering a usable image
  • Highest DQE maximizes signal-to-noise ratio
In-situ studies
  • Full- or sub-area sampling at rates up to 1600 fps
  • Direct data storage with >15 minutes capture time, regardless of frame rate
  • Longest direct detector lifetime even when using highest dose rates
  • Streamlines large dataset management for both novice and expert users
  • Video buffer allows you to capture only the video you want; with post-event triggering and LookBack
  • Never miss the start of an in-situ reaction again
Counting studies
  • Retains full capabilities of K2 Summit modes (counting and super-resolution) for beam-sensitive materials for both materials science (zeolite, metal-organic framework (MOF)) and biological applications (cryo-tomography, SPA) structural characterization
