INFINITY2-1R – A microscope camera for Low-light applications

The INFINITY2-1R is the best price-to-performance uncooled ICX205 Camera on the market. The 2-1R scientific camera significantly outperforms its predecessor for quantitative and low-light applications.

Improved thermal management techniques combined with a much higher dynamic range and 14-bit output have resulted in a versatile entry-level research camera for documentation and image analysis in Life Science, Clinical and Material Science applications.

With a dark current rating of fewer than 1 e-/s, the INFINITY2-1R manages seconds of exposure duration with ease.

Superior sensitivity

The INFINITY2-1R’s dynamic range of 64 dB enables users to image unevenly lit samples without concern. The resultant images reveal information in both bright and dark regions that are typically hidden by cameras with a limited dynamic range.

Long exposure lengths of several minutes are possible with advanced thermal management without needing an expensive cooled camera.

Full image analysis software included

INFINITE ANALYZE is a comprehensive image analysis suite that comes with camera control, measurement, annotation, tiling, and post-capture augmentation. INFINITY CAPTURE is an intuitive image-capturing tool. With camera and software combined, a complete microscopy imaging solution is created for your application.

USB 2.0 plug-and-play to create interface

Sharing and installation of one or more cameras on a single computer is quick and simple thanks to the high-speed USB 2.0 interface.

Third-party software integration

The INFINITY2-1R is available in monochrome, color, and OEM form factors, including custom and board-level enclosures.

An experienced team of highly qualified imaging experts and technical support personnel are also on hand to offer support for the INFINITY cameras.

Lumenera prides itself on its ability to help users get the most out of their cameras as it is understands their imaging demands.
