6.0 Megapixel USB 3.0 Microscopy Camera
MSRP: $5,500.00 USD*

Lumenera’s INFINITY3-6UR is a high-speed, high-sensitivity camera with 6 megapixel resolution. Incorporating Sony’s ICX694 CCD sensor with high QE, high dynamic range and high speed, the INFINITY3-6UR delivers outstanding image quality and value for challenging low light applications such as fluorescence including the NIR region.

The INFINITY3-6UR is the ideal general purpose camera for most microscopy applications due to its 6MP resolution, excellent color reproduction, speed and light sensitivity needed for low-light applications. Built on Sony’s EXview HAD II sensor technology, this camera offers extremely high dynamic range, 4.54 x 4.54 μm pixels and very low noise. With 2x2 binning, there is a fourfold increase in sensitivity while providing a 1.5 MP (1376x1096) resolution.

The 'R' grade designation of the INFINITY3-6UR is a testament to low-noise electronics, high-grade components and unique thermal management techniques. This camera is designed for use in a wide variety of life science, clinical and industrial applications requiring optimal color reproduction, extreme sensitivity, increased resolution and high speed.

The INFINITY3-6UR uses the latest USB 3.0 technology at 5 Gbits/sec to deliver the fastest image transfer - even at its highest resolution. Image captures can be synchronized using either a hardware or software trigger. 128 MB of onboard memory for frame buffering ensures dependable and reliable image delivery at full frame rate and highest resolution even in the most demanding systems. USB 3.0 is the ideal choice for microscopy as it is readily available on today’s computers, while plug-and-play connectivity makes for easy installation.

The INFINITY3-6UR comes with Lumenera's fully-featured INFINITY ANALYZE, an image capture and analysis software package offering camera control, measurement, annotation, tiling and post capture enhancement. Camera and software combine to create a complete microscopy imaging solution for your application.

(Click to view larger image) To maximize the sensitivity of the new INFINITY3-6UR, Lumenera used a new larger 1” format Sony ICX694 sensor.  With an approximately 50% larger active surface area than the ICX285 with 2/3" optical format, this high resolution camera achieves a more-than-4x increase in resolution with a less-than-2x decrease in effective sensitivity.
