Apex Series
AP-1600T-USB-LSX

The Apex AP-1600T-USB-LSX is a 3-CMOS prism-based R-G-B area scan camera intended for microscopy applications in the medical and life sciences markets. The camera features multi-sensor prism technology, providing better color fidelity and spatial precision than traditional Bayer color cameras, and is certified to JAI's highest grade of dust/FOD suppression standards for maximum image clarity.

The camera is built around the Pregius™ 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-1600T-USB-NF-LSX) 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.

Exceptionally accurate color image data

Using a special prism-based imaging technique, the incoming light is separated into red, green and blue wavelengths, captured by three precisely-aligned CMOS sensors. The result is better color accuracy and spatial precision than traditional color cameras using the Bayer mosaic technique.

Highest level of image clarity

While all JAI microscopy cameras provide exceptional image quality, LSX models include an extra level of screening and preventive measures to minimize the occurrence of any dust, lint, or other foreign object debris particles (FODs) on the prism, sensor, or in the optical path of the camera.

Compatibility with third-party microscopy software

The AP-1600T-USB-LS is compatible with the widely-used ImagePro software from Media Cybernetics. Or if open source is preferred, device adapters are included at no cost in the latest release of the Micro-Manager software package.
