Prime sCMOS Camera

Prime BSI Camera
  • 4.2 Megapixel Scientific CMOS Camera
  • 6.5µm x 6.5µm Pixel Area
  • 72% Quantum Efficiency
  • Real-time Computational Capabilities

Photometrics Prime and its replacement is the first intelligent Scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera to incorporate a powerful FPGA-based Embedded Signal Processing™ engine, enabling PrimeEnhance and PrimeLocate, two advanced, real-time processing features. This product is now replaced by our new Prime BSI sCMOS camera featuring 95% QE.

PrimeEnhance - before PrimeEnhance - after

Winner of multiple industry awards, Prime's embedded signal processing engine quantitatively restores images that are hidden in photon noise. Learn more its advanced, real‐time processing features:
