QHYCCD Scientific Cameras offer the latest technology in scientific imaging at reasonable prices.  Scientific CMOS image sensors offer extremely low noise, rapid frame rates, wide dynamic range, high quantum efficiency, high resolution, and a large field of view simultaneously in one image.  In this sense, while QHYCCD cameras made for astronomy clearly fit the definition of scientific cameras, we differentiate QHY scientific camera models based on additional features not found on similar models used for astro-imaging.

QHYCCD Scientific Cameras not only exhibit extremely low noise, high quantum efficiency and other scientific CMOS characteristics, but also:

  • large area,
  • high-resolution sensors,
  • SWIR sensors,
  • polarized light sensors,
  • GPS enabled timing,
  • external triggers,
  • field programmable gate arrays,
  • 2x10GB fiber optic computer interface and
  • water cooling options.

The following scientific models are ideally suited for microscopy, spectroscopy, multi-spectrum imaging, inspection, bio-luminescence imaging, life science applications and many other laboratory uses.
