Spectral Instruments Imaging Camera

Spectral Instruments Imaging (SI Imaging) came about by teaming the camera expertise of Spectral Instruments with the system expertise of the developers of the first high sensitivity laboratory imaging systems designed primarily for the demanding application of bioluminescent animal imaging. Spectral Instruments has for many years provided the cameras for these systems as well as for many other challenging applications. The Spectral Instruments logo is visible on thousands of cameras used in laboratories around the world.

Spectral Instruments has built its reputation upon being the premier provider of cooled, custom CCD-based camera systems for scientific imaging solutions.  Their products are found at the heart of many OEM or research based high performance imaging instruments.  Spectral Instruments’ cameras build upon the company's history of innovation to provide the highest quality product in performance and reliability.  SI has been designing innovative cameras for over 20 years in applications from biology, astronomy and high energy physics all while simultaneously delivering on each customer’s exact, and custom, requirements.
