Redesigned from the ground up, this true next-generation camera is optimized for the most demanding low-dose electron microscopy (EM) applications in both life science and materials science research. The K3™ camera is the complete and latest expression of Gatan’s deep experience in the delivery of real-time, single electron counting direct detection cameras.

  • Better
    • Powerful inline signal processing will raise the DQE beyond that of the K2 camera
    • Optional inline, GPU-based motion correction avoids the need to save terabytes of raw frames
  • Larger 
    • 24 megapixels (5,760 x 4,092) field of view – 1.6 times the size of the K2 camera
  • Faster
    • 1,500 full frames per second –  3.75 times the speed of the K2 camera
