AP-1600T-USB NF LS:  APEX Series,  CMOS, 1456 x 1088, 78.8 fps

The Apex AP-1600T-USB-NF  LS is a 3-CMOS prism-based R-G-B area scan camera intended for microscopy applications in the medical and life sciences markets. The multi-sensor prism technology provides better color fidelity and spatial precision than traditional Bayer color cameras, while the USB3 Vision interface offers excellent plug and play compatibility.

The camera is built around the Pregius TM IMX273 1/2.9-inch sensor featuring 1456 x 1088 pixels and pixel sizes of 3.45 µm x 3.45 µm. A standard C-mount can be easily adapted to most types of digital microscopes or can be used with a variety of standard or telecentric lenses in larger systems.

This models is equipped with white enclosures which have the IR-cut filters removed for life sciences applications needing extended sensitivity in the red channel.

Exceptionally accurate color image data
Using a special prism-based imaging technique, the incoming light is separated into red, green and blue wavelengths, captured by three precisely-aligned CMOS sensors. The result is better color accuracy and spatial precision than traditional color cameras using the Bayer mosaic technique.

High resolution combined with high frame rate

The AP-1600T-USB NF LS  is built around three Sony Pregius IMX273 sensors. Combined with a USB3 Vision interface, this machine vision camera can output as much as 3 x 1.6 megapixels at 78.8 frames/second in full resolution.

Compatible with third party microscopy software

The AP-1600T-USB-NF LS is compatible with the widely-used ImagePro software from Media Cybernetics. Or if open source is preferred, device adapters are included at no cost in the latest release of the Micro-Manager software package.
