Prime 95B

Photometrics and Gpixel have introduced the Photometrics Prime 95B Scientific CMOS camera. The Prime 95B camera is built on the first scientific-grade CMOS sensor available, the GSENSE400BSI-TVISB. It combines backside illumination (BSI) technology with large pixels and low-noise characteristics to maximise light collection. The Prime 95B is three times more sensitive than the current generation of sCMOS sensors with a greater signal-to-noise ratio than EMCCD cameras.

The GSENSE400BSI is the first backside illuminated sCMOS image sensor. The recently announced TVISB version of Photometric’s sensor features a peak quantum efficiency of 95 percent, single-electron noise and more than 90dB dynamic range, without the need for deep cooling and complex electronic design.

The Prime 95B is optimised for low-light microscopy with its 95 percent QE and 11µm x 11µm pixel area. This allows for the collection of nearly all available light, maximising the signal-to-noise ratio of the experiment while minimising cellular photo damage. The Prime 95B camera captures images using the full microscope field-of-view at over 41fps with 16-bit images, and 82fps with 12-bit images.
