Laboratory Equipment & Automation

Highest performance is required for cameras used in automated solutions for scientific or medical diagnostic laboratory applications. High speed and resolution, reliability, precision and top image quality enable reproducible analysis and high sample throughput. These are precisely the features offered by Basler cameras. Along with an optimized design and outstanding performance for the price they enable flexible use and simple integration in your automation solution. This supports the development and optimization of new technologies for laboratory automation, which are of increasing importance in the modern life sciences, different industrial sectors and many areas of clinical diagnostics.

Typical areas of use and suitable cameras

  • Process Automation & Quality Control

    Reliable, fast and accurate
    Process Automation & Quality Control

    The automation of laboratory procedures is relevant in areas such as chemical industry as well as biotechnology, the pharmaceutical industry and food technology. But laboratory automation is also of growing importance in bio-medical science and different medical fields. The objective is to improve processes, generate more data points in less time, avoid errors, document analyses and experiments in a traceable manner and to reduce costs at the same time.

    Here Basler cameras fulfill typical tasks such as sample identification and sorting (for example, barcode and RFID reading, color and pattern recognition) or process and quality control (liquid handling control, compound management, etc.).

    Suitable cameras for process automation and quality control are:

  • Bio-Imaging

    Top image quality, high dynamic range and superior light sensitivity
    Bio-Imaging

    Bio-imaging technologies, i.e. digital image acquisition and processing for visualization of structure and function of living objects, are used to create images of human or animal bodies, anatomical regions and tissues, or even of individual cells and molecules. Microscopic methods and medical diagnostic imaging are important elements of bio-imaging and are used in biological and medical science and research, for example to examine diseases and to provide fast and reliable diagnoses.

    A prominent example is virtual microscopy or automated slide scanning. In biomedical research (such as embryology, developmental biology, neurobiology or cancer research) as well as routine diagnostics (histopathology, for example), many cell or tissue samples must be investigated and evaluated in a short time. Digital slide scanning enables full automation of the workflow and thus increases quality and efficiency. Basler’s sensitive cameras allow fast acquisition of high-resolution images with perfect color fidelity with short exposure times for a maximum sample protection.

    Camera series suitable for bio-imaging are:

    Basler ace
