Basler Shows Cameras for Laboratory Automation at Pittcon 2018

Basler Shows Cameras for Laboratory Automation at Pittcon 2018

Basler will exhibit at Pittcon 2018, the annual conference and exposition on laboratory science. The show will take place in Orlando, Florida, from February 26 to March 1, 2018. At booth 1563, Basler will present its latest camera models and software for laboratory automation and microscopy.

On March 1, Basler's Lead Applications Engineer, Jacob Vingless, will give a talk on the technology behind the Sony STARVIS and Pregius sensors. He will explain how both sensor lines combine the CCD and the CMOS architecture and how STARVIS achieves light sensitivity with small pixels. The attendees will learn which sensor line is a better fit for their application.

The camera models with the respective sensors will be showcased at the Basler booth. The Basler ace L with the newest generation of Sony Pregius sensors (IMX253, IMX255, IMX267, IMX304) is a fit for highly demanding applications. The twelve global-shutter models provide 9 and 12 MP resolutions, up to 42 fps frame rates, more than 70 dB dynamic range and a high quantum efficiency. An application example is sperm analysis, where both resolution and speed are required.

The eight Basler ace U models with the back-illuminated Sony STARVIS sensors (IMX178, IMX226) are a great fit for low-light applications. With their values for dark noise (3 electrons) and quantum efficiency (over 80%), these rolling shutter models offer a price-effective option for manual light or fluorescence microscopy. These models can be used for blood analysis, matrix code reading or process control. The Sony STARVIS sensor IMX226 is integrated in Basler’s latest Microscopy ace model which offers a high resolution of 12.2 megapixels.

Thirteen different camera models are available within the Basler PowerPack for Microscopy. In addition to the cameras, the PowerPack includes the Basler Microscopy Software for camera control, image acquisition, processing and analysis. The software is enhanced with fluorescence features: color presets for fluorescence markers and dark skin mode.

Also included in the PowerPack is the Basler Video Recording Software for capturing single images, high-speed videos and image sequences for time-lapse microscopy. The software offers camera control features, including hardware trigger signals.
