Their tools, technologies, and vision solutions are built to deliver to their customers a unique and competitive advantage.

Teledyne Photometrics designs and manufactures high-performance Scientific CMOS, CCD and EMCCD cameras that support demanding, quantitative bio-research.

The original architect of the first scientific-grade EMCCD, Teledyne Photometrics maintains its leadership role with the release of its award-winning Prime, the sCMOS camera with built-in computational intelligence for image restoration, and Prime 95B, the industry’s first sCMOS camera with 95% Quantum Efficiency for the highest sensitivity available. The company expanded its sCMOS offerings to include the Iris Family of sCMOS cameras, designed for high resolution over a large field of view, and additions to the Prime Family with the Prime BSI and Prime BSI Express sCMOS, now featuring low-noise modes and fast imaging speeds.

More recently, Teledyne Photometrics has released the groundbreaking Kinetix Family of sCMOS cameras, featuring huge sensors, sub-electron noise levels, and faster speeds than any other sCMOS across the full frame. The Kinetix and Kinetix22 continue to change the face of quantitative bio-research, pushing camera development further than ever before.
