PrimeEnhance™: 2D Active Image De-Noising Capability

Source: Photometrics

Imaging faint signal levels comes with many sources of noise such as dark noise, read noise, and shot noise, which can affect the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of measurements. Challenges to reduce noise in data processing include preserving the quantitative nature of the recorded pixel intensities, and preserving key features such as edges, textures, and details with low contrast. The PrimeEnhance™ feature in the Prime sCMOS camera implements a 2D de-noising process that evaluates and processes incoming images to reduce the effects of photon shot noise at low signal levels.
