Biomedical Microscopy

Top microscopy performance, outstanding image quality, reliable documentation and archiving

Biomedical Microscopy

Nowadays, digital image processing is found in a wide range of optical microscopy application fields such as medical and biological research, diagnostics, pharmaceutical testing, or material sciences. Microscopy enables visualization of fine details and provides insight in structure and function of the most diverse and smallest objects.

Digital cameras in biomedical microscopy applications are required to provide highest image quality in real-time, outstanding color reproduction and fidelity and a high dynamic range. These are prerequisites which enable reproducible, detailed observation, differentiation and analysis of the most delicate structures in materials or biological samples, for example in histopathological diagnosis of illnesses and monitoring the course of illnesses.

Are you looking for easy to use and affordable microscopy cameras which provide outstanding images and high performance? Basler cameras provide best images for various biomedical applications. Trust a camera expert who has been working in the image processing market since 1988.

Typical areas of use and suitable cameras

  • Conventional Light Microscopy

    Outstanding contrast and color fidelity in realtime
    Conventional Light Microscopy

    Many routine microscopic applications in biomedical and clinical laboratory settings, for example in histology, cell biology, hematology or medical microbiology, are based on light microscopy using various illumination and contrast methods. Today cameras are a central part of these applications and are used wherever it is important to monitor images live and discuss, capture, analyze and archive them. Cameras in conventional light microscopy must reliably deliver high-resolution, pin sharp images with appealing color fidelity.

    Camera series suitable for conventional light microscopy are:

  • Fluorescence Microscopy

    High dynamic range and excellent light sensitivity
    Fluorescence Microscopy

    Fluorescence microscopy is a special type of light microscopy. The light emission of special fluorescent dyes (fluorochromes) is detected, which are excited to fluoresce by light of a particular wavelength. Today there are a great number of fluorochromes with fluorescent colors in the range from blue/violet to longwave red. This offers many possibilities for use of this microscopic method in routine laboratory work and diagnostics as well as biomedical and clinical research. The tiniest structures themselves and even molecules can be differentiated, for example using immunofluorescence or fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH).

    Camera series suitable for fluorescence microscopy are:

    Basler ace

    Basler ace: NIR-optimized CMOS Sensors

    • Broad sensor portfolio with more than 100 camera models
