Photometrics, a manufacturer of high performance scientific cameras for life science applications, is proud to introduce the Prime 4.2 megapixel sCMOS camera.

Photometrics Prime is the first intelligent scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera that actively defeats the negative impact of Poisson noise in low light images.The camera packs a formidable FPGA-based Embedded Signal Processing engine,ESP™. ESP™ enables powerful signal restoration and feature detection for localisation based Super Resolution Microscopy. These revolutionary capabilities significantly increase low-light image clarity and provide new ways to address data glut, a common problem when imaging at high frame rates.

Prime’s intelligent features include:-

  • PrimeEnhance™ - quantitatively increases the Signal to Noise Ratio by 3X-5X, increasing the clarity and quality of images.
  • PrimeLocate™ - dynamically evaluates acquired images and reduces the surplus of data generated during high speed super resolution imaging.

Designed using sCMOS sensor technology, Prime becomes an extremely versatile life science imaging solution. It is a high resolution camera with great sensitivity, extremely low noise, high frame rates and impressive dynamic range. The large field of view is ideal for microscopy, maximizing usefulness of the imaging area.

Primary applications:

  • Super Resolution Microscopy
  • Light Sheet Microscopy
  • High Speed Ratio-metric Imaging
  • TIRF Microscopy
  • Confocal Microscopy
