Fluorescence microscopy image showing cell and nucleous - representing life science market

Several Active Silicon products are used in imaging in life science tasks. Applications vary from capturing high-resolution images and real-time video streaming to the control of automated handling of lab specimens. Our product range offers versatile and compact autofocus-zoom block cameras, as well as CoaXPress frame grabbers and Camera Link frame grabbers for powerful, low-latency image acquisition.

Autofocus-zoom camera products for life science applications

Our AF-Zoom camera solutions include USB3 block cameras, HDMI block cameras, 3G/HD-SDI block cameras, MIPI CSI-2 and Ethernet IP solutions. They come with a variety of sizes, optical zoom abilities and full HD as well as 4K models.

If your application requires HD video transmission over longer distances, we provide long-reach video transmission solutions that ensure real-time, low-latency high-definition video transmission through the use of HD-VLC® technology. Find out more: Long-reach HD video transmission technologies.
