Lumenera’s INFINITY3-1 Cooled Scientific Digital Camera is Ideal for Low Light Conditions and Long Exposure

Lumenera’s INFINITY3-1 cooled scientific digital camera is ideal for particularly low light conditions, long exposure, and quantitative analysis applications.

The INFINITY3-1 employs the highly successful and popular 2/3” Sony ICX285 CCD sensor with 1.4 megapixel resolution. The extremely sensitive Sony CCD sensor, combined with high dynamic range and low noise, as a result of proprietary Peltier cooling technology, makes the INFINITY3-1 an ideal choice for extended exposure and low light fluorescent applications where 12-bit data is required for analysis.

The INFINITY3-1 is offered with both color and monochrome capability and is fully supported by INFINITY ANALYZE, a complete image capture and processing software package for advanced imaging, and INFINITY CAPTURE software, an intuitive user interface that includes all of the basic features required to control the camera and capture crisp clear images. INFINITY cameras also include TWAIN drivers which ensure integration and compatibility with a variety of 3rd party software applications. The plug-and-play high-speed USB 2.0 interface produces extremely high frame rates through binning and ROI allowing real time preview and focus.

Applying Color to a Fluorescent Monochrome Image Using INFINITY ANALYZE Image Analysis Software

Lumenera's Director of Business Development for the Scientific Channel presents new uses for your INFINITY camera.

To take full advantage of the INFINITY3 series of low light cameras, researchers will often choose a monochrome version for its extra sensitivity. By removing the camera’s Bayer filter, the sensitivity can increase by as much as 30%, which is critical in extremely low light environments and when using fluorochromes.
