Prime 95B Scientific CMOS Camera

Prime 95B Scientific CMOS Camera

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

Developed with award-winning technology, 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.

PrimeEnhance - before PrimeEnhance - after

Prime 95B is available with an embedded signal processing engine that quantitatively restores images that are hidden in photon noise. Learn more these advanced, real‐time processing features:
