Prime 95B Scientific CMOS Camera

Prime 95B Scientific CMOS Camera

95% QE Backside Illuminated Scientific CMOS, when discovery depends on every photon

The Prime 95B Scientific CMOS camera allows you to overcome many difficult imaging challenges by converting nearly every available photon to useful signal through an incredible 95% Quantum Efficiency – by using the first available scientific CMOS sensor with backside illumination. And now, the Prime 95B is available with 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.
