The Apex AP-1600T-USB-LS is a 3-CMOS prism-based R-G-B area scan camera intended for microscopy applications in the medical and life sciences markets. The multi-sensor prism technology provides better color fidelity and spatial precision than traditional Bayer color cameras, while the USB3 Vision interface offers excellent plug and play compatibility.

The camera is built around the PregiusTM IMX273 1/2.9-inch sensor featuring 1456 x 1088 pixels and pixel sizes of 3.45 µm x 3.45 µm. A standard C-mount can be easily adapted to most types of digital microscopes or can be used with a variety of standard or telecentric lenses in larger systems.

The camera can be optionally ordered with the IR-cut filter removed (AP-3200T-USB-NF-LS) for applications needing extended sensitivity in the red/NIR channel. Drivers/device adapters are available for the popular ImagePro software from Media Cybernetics (sold separately), as well as for the open source Micro-Manager software package.

  • 3-CMOS prism-based RGB camera.
  • 3 x IMX273 Sony Pregius sensors.
