The Brandaris 128 ultra-high-speed imaging facility has been updated over the last 10 years through modifications made to the camera’s hardware and software. At its introduction the camera was able to record 6 sequences of 128 images (500×292 pixels) at a maximum frame rate of 25 Mfps. The segmented mode of the camera was revised to allow for subdivision of the 128 image sensors intoarbitrary segments (1–128) with an inter-segment time of 17 μs. Furthermore, a region of interest can be selected to increase the number of recordings within a single run of the camera from 6 up to 125.By extending the imaging system with a laser-induced fluorescence setup, time-resolved ultra-highspeed fluorescence imaging of microscopic objects has been enabled. Minor updates to the systemare also reported here. © 2012 American Institute of Physics. []
