In order to investigate the smallest structures, medical or scientific imaging laboratories often use microscopic methods with optical magnifications. Particles in the optical path, for example on the sensor glass, can have a disturbing effect depending on the aperture and the associated f-stop numbers and can significantly impair the evaluation of the image information. To prevent such contamination, Basler has developed the Dust Protection Feature Set for selected models of its MED ace camera series.

In her Product Insight “Image Quality in Medical & Life Sciences: Influence of Particles in the Optical Path”, Basler Product Manager Dr. Melanie Gräsel explains the interrelationships and effects of contamination as a function of f-stop number and position in the optical path with the help of comparative illustrations and clearly describes how the new Dust Protection Feature Set works.

In this Product Insight, Basler Product Manager Dr. Melanie Gräsel explains why special attention should be paid to possible contamination of the optical path in medical and life sciences applications, and describes in detail the functionalities of the Dust Protection Feature Set
