Prime BSI Scientific CMOS Camera

High Resolution BSI Scientific CMOS

Prime BSI delivers the perfect balance between high resolution imaging and sensitivity because it uses an optimized pixel design with near perfect 95% Quantum Efficiency to maximize signal detection.

This 4 Megapixel camera with 6.5μm pixels captures highly detailed images with great quality while acquiring data at high frame rates. This ensures that all data is collected and no event goes undetected.

Prime BSI delivers a 100% pixel fill factor and does not rely on micro-lensing technology to increase detection, resulting in a 30% increase in sensitivity over previous sCMOS cameras.
