Real-time quantitative denoising algorithm that improves image clarity by reducing photon-shot (Poisson) noise | Delivers an increase in Peak Signal to Noise Ratio of 3X


Dynamically evaluates and acquires only the relevant data for localisation based super-resolution applications.

Enhanced dynamic range

Measure both bright and dim signal levels within the same image | 35,000:1 Dynamic Range (91 dB).

Multiple expose out triggering

Control up to four light sources for multi-wavelength acquisitions.

SMART Streaming™

Faster acquisition rates with variable exposures, ideal for multi-probed live cell imaging.

Additional information

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.

This perfect balance in performance makes the Prime BSI the most versatile imaging camera for live-cell imaging with:

  • Highest Sensitivity
  • High Resolution
  • Large Field of View
  • High Frame Rates
  • Large Dynamic Range
