Prime sCMOS Camera

Prime sCMOS Camera

4.2 Megapixel Scientific CMOS Camera

Winner of multiple industry awards, Photometrics Prime is the first intelligent scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera to incorporate a powerful FPGA-based Embedded Signal Processing engine (ESP). ESP enables advanced real-time processing features.

  • 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.
