Scientific / Microscopy Cameras

There are a number of camera sensor types available. Below is a table showing their suitablity depending on your scientific / microscopy application.

Application / Sensor TypeCMOSCCDsCMOSEMCCDInGaAsICCD
Brightfield    
Low-Light / Fluorescence    
High Speed        
Infrared / NIR      

If you are planning to use the camera on a microscope, there is also the size of the sensor to consider. The main ones are 1/3″, 1/2″, 2/3″ and 1″. The larger sized sensors generally cost more, but will give you better quality images since more light will fall onto the sensor. The other advantage of larger sensors, is that it will give you a bigger field of view. The sensor under 1″, will typically need additional optics in the microscope coupler, in order to get a similar field of view. The additional optics are never perfect, and sometimes cause vignetting/shading around the edges.

Dage MTI

Infrared CCD Monochrome Video Camera

1/2″ IR camera ideal for applications requiring real-time imaging with enhanced sensitivity in the near IR and visible regions. Remote control for contrast enhancement

The newly designed IR-1000 real-time camera (30 frames/sec.) offers enhanced sensitivity across the entire visible and near IR spectrum, with a 5X increase in sensitivity at 900nm.  The extended IR response allows deeper penetration into tissue sections (e.g. brain slices), while the high sensitivity enables the user to detect images even in lower light conditions.

To provide optimum contrast, the IR-1000 camera now includes electronics that automatically and instantaneously readjust when a scene changes.  This innovative design is especially useful when changing magnification levels, specimens, and/or lighting levels.  The camera’s new real-time edge enhancement feature sharpens the edges and delivers a clearer picture by resolving fine details in the image.

With a convenient C-mount, the IR-1000 is widely used in a “live” mode connected directly to a monitor.  An optional computer interface board is also available.  Dage-MTI’s new real-time camera is ideal for applications such as electrophysiology, infrared differential interference contrast (IR-DIC), failure analysis, forensics and semiconductor inspection.

The 4K-UHD offers full, ultra high definition, 3840×2160 output (up to 60fps) with 1600 TV lines of resolution! Small features at low magnification that could not be resolved satisfactorily using other HD cameras may now be resolved with the Dage 4K-UHD

Like the family of HD cameras Dage offers, the 4K-UHD is preprogrammed for perfect color by critical adjustments of 6 hues – not just red, green and blue, but yellow, cyan and magenta as well. The 4K-UHD utilizes 3 CMOS chips with pixel offset technology to increase spatial resolution without sacrificing real time, up to 60fps for live streaming. This fast frame rate enables the operator to move samples without smear lag or jitter. Real-time, 60fps video streaming also allows effortless focus and specimen placement for more efficient slide reviews.

Photmetrics Prime sCMOS cameras

Prime95B – 1.4MP Back Illuminated Scientific CMOS

Photometrics Prime 95B is the Scientific CMOS with extreme sensitivity using high Quantum Efficiency (QE) Backside Illumination (BSI), a first for Scientific CMOS cameras. The 95B’s sensor converts up to 95% of incident photons into a measurable signal. Unlike microlens approaches to increasing QE, which lose effectiveness as objective magnification is increased, Prime 95B’s BSI sensor brings light into the pixel photodiode from behind, avoiding structures that reflect or absorb light. When combined with large 11μm pixels, Prime 95B can deliver over 300% more signal than other sCMOS cameras at 100X magnification.

More importantly, Prime 95B outperforms EMCCD cameras—with no excess noise that negates the benefit of using a high QE sensor, and additional limitations from EM gain calibration, stability, expense, and sensor lifetime. With a true 16-bit dynamic range, Prime 95B easily accomplishes what EMCCD can not—detect weak and bright signals within the same image with photon-noise limited performance.

  • 95% Quantum Efficiency
  • 11μm x 11μm Pixel Area
  • 1.3e- Read Noise (median)
  • 41fps @ 16-bit / 82fps @ 12-bit
