Prime sCMOS Camera from Photometrics – A 4.2 Megapixel Camera

Photometrics Prime is the first intelligent scientific CMOS (sCMOS) camera to include a robust FPGA-based Embedded Signal Processing™ engine (ESP).

Advanced real-time processing features are the result of ESP:

  • PrimeLocate™ dynamically examines the collected images, and minimizes the excess data produced during high speed super resolution imaging.
  • PrimeEnhance™ improves the quality and clarity of images, by quantitatively increasing the Signal to Noise Ratio by 3X-5X

Prime is designed using sCMOS sensor technology, and it is considered to be a versatile life science imaging system. It has high resolution with exceptional sensitivity, high frame rates, very low noise, and a good dynamic range. The camera has a large field of view that is suitable for microscopy, and it optimizes the effectiveness of the imaging area.

Key Features

  • Sophisticated triggering - Multiple expose out triggering
  • Optimized pixel Size - 6.5 µm pixel pitch
  • Very low read noise - 1e- (median), <1.5e- (rms)
  • Large field of view - 18.8mm sensor diagonal
  • Better dynamic range - 30,000:1, 89.5dB
  • High quantum efficiency - 72% peak QE
  • Rapid frame rates - 100 fps
  • ESP - PrimeEnhance, Multi-ROI (Region of Interest), and PrimeLocate

Key Applications

  • TIRF microscopy
  • Super resolution microscopy
