Lumenera INFINITY 1-3 Microscope camera

3.1 Megapixel Scientific CMOS USB 2.0 Camera

Lumenera’s INFINITY1-3 digital camera is designed to be a cost-effective, versatile solution for documentation life science, clinical and material science applications.

The INFINITY1-3 scientific CMOS camera provides extremely fine detail that was previously invisible to lower megapixel imaging systems with 2048×1536 resolution. Benefit from fast, smooth previews during sample manipulation with high frame rates of up to 80 frames per second. The INFINITY1-3 is available in colour, as well as OEM form factors including board-level and custom enclosures.

Excellent Colour Reproduction:

Years of experience in the microscopy market have allowed Lumenera to develop specialized colour algorithms ensuring excellent colour reproduction in samples ranging from stained cells to wafer inspection.

Product Highlights:

  • Low noise, progressive scan 1/2″ 3.1 megapixel image sensor
