Key Features

  • 12MP back-illuminated CMOS camera
  • Higher quantum efficiency
  • Multi-platform software solutions
  • Includes calibration slide for on-screen measurements

The 12MP MU1203-BI is part of our back-illuminated CMOS camera series. Back-illuminated CMOS sensors provide higher quantum-efficiency by moving the photo-diode layer in front of the electronic components, increasing photon-absorption. This translates to less image-noise and dark-current while maintaining high speeds. The C-mount connection provides flexibility in usage, including C-mount interfaces, reduction lenses, and adapters for most microscope brands.

The included software for Windows, Mac, and Linux provides an imaging solution for photography and videography. The Windows (XP/Vista/7/8/10) version provides an extensive toolset for image-processing and measurements. A lite version of the application is provided for Mac and Linux.
