Machine vision cameras are not only used in the manufacture of medical products,

Modern digital picture acquisition and processing is used by users in medicine, medical technology, and life sciences for disease study, analysis, and diagnosis, as well as sports and exercise.

Cameras for Laboratory Automation and Equipment

High-performance cameras are used in automated systems for scientific, medical, and diagnostic laboratory applications such as in-vitro diagnostics. Reproducible analysis and high sample throughput are enabled by high speed and resolution, reliability, and the greatest picture quality. Basler cameras have these qualities, allowing for very flexible use and easy integration into your lab automation solution. This aids in the development and optimization of novel laboratory automation technology.

Quality Control & Process Automation

The fields of chemistry, biology, pharmaceuticals, and food technology, as well as medicine, all benefit from lab automation. The goal is to enhance procedures, produce more results in less time, avoid errors, document analyses and experiments in a traceable manner, while also lowering expenses. Basler cameras help with sample identification and sorting (for example, barcode recognition, color and pattern recognition) as well as process and quality control (e.g. sample management, control of analytical reactions).

Microscopy and Cameras

For optical microscopy, camera technology for image collection and processing is critical. It enables the study of various structures and functions. Medical and biological research, diagnostics, drug testing, and materials science are examples of uses. Basler cameras can be used for both conventional light microscopy and fluorescence microscopy. Why? They provide real-time image quality, outstanding color reproduction, and a wide dynamic range. They make it possible to examine and analyze the finest structures in a repeatable and thorough manner.

Conventional Light Microscopy

Many common microscopic applications in scientific, biomedical, and clinical laboratories, such as histology, cell biology, hematology, and medical microbiology, rely on light microscopy with varied lighting and contrast approaches. These microscopy applications rely heavily on cameras. They aid in the live tracking, discussion, recording, analysis, and archiving of photographs. Basler cameras are capable of reliably delivering high-resolution, crisp images with excellent color integrity.

Light Microscopy Benefits Significantly from the MED Feature Set

Customers in the Medical & Life Sciences business set high demands on imaging components of their systems, which our Basler MED ace camera series fully meets. Within the large range of demanding applications, light microscopy is one example. One of the MED Feature Sets that distinguishes the Basler MED ace cameras is Brilliant Image. Let’s have a look at two elements of Brilliant Image that make it simple and quick to obtain the best photograph quality out of any image.

Ophthalmology Camera Applications

The imaging component for imaging-based technologies for eye diagnosis and therapy must have sensitivity, reproducibility, correct color reproduction, and the highest image quality with appropriate resolution and speed. Examinations of the anterior and posterior sections of the eye using a slit light, as well as comprehensive representations of the fundus using a fundus or OCT camera, are examples of applications. In modern eye surgery, such as cataract surgery, there are further applications.

Functional Analysis

Many approaches for evaluating and diagnosing the eye are based on digital camera technology. Funduscopy, optical coherence tomography (OCT), and slit lamp microscopy are among them. Basler cameras provide cutting-edge technology for all applications and provide accurate diagnoses. They are employed as fundus or OCT cameras, for example. Their digital image capturing makes documentation, tracking the progression of a disease, and exchanging information amongst doctors much easier.

Methods of Treatment

Every year, more than 150,000 patients in Germany choose laser eye surgery. The possibility of living without glasses or contact lenses prompted a spike in the usage of laser procedures, including as myopia and hyperopia correction, as well as glaucoma and cataract surgery. Basler cameras provide very dependable support for diagnostics, laser treatment or surgery, and progress monitoring in these systems.

Our Camera Recommendation and Application Areas

Additional Uses for Cameras

Medicine, medical technology, and the biological sciences all benefit from digital imaging and processing. Other areas of application include dermatology, dentistry, and imaging operations in the operating room, in addition to ophthalmology, laboratory automation, and microscopy. In addition, camera technology is used in orthopedics and rehabilitation medicine to detect and analyze motion, as well as in patient monitoring to detect issues early. Our Basler cameras are distinguished by their great image quality and high dependability, making them ideal for all of these applications.



In today’s dental technology, high-speed cameras with higher resolution and sensitivity are used. Because of their small size, Basler cameras like the Basler dart and Basler MED ace have the best integration requirements. They allow for a precise impression of the upper and lower jaws as well as the bite. Small high-performance cameras are used in technologies such as mouth scanners (intraoral scanners) and model and impression scanners.



Many image analyses are used in dermatology, such as in the detection of early cancer, the diagnosis of skin lesions, and the monitoring of wound healing processes. Basler MED ace cameras are ideal for use in dermatological applications. Because they produce high-quality, real-time photos with great color reproduction and sensitivity. They enable image viewing, documentation, and comprehensive analysis in this way.


Surgery Imaging Procedure

In surgery, imaging operations necessitate real-time representations of the smallest anatomical structures. The Basler MED ace consistently produces high-resolution photos with precise color reproduction and crisp contrasts. After that, they determine the best beginning place for intraoperative viewing. Image presentation, analysis, simulation, and documentation are becoming increasingly relevant in the context of light microscopy and fluorescence-based intraoperative imaging because of minimally invasive computer and robot-assisted surgery or intraoperative navigation.


Therapy and Motion Analysis

No physical or occupational therapist can see as quickly or as precisely as a sophisticated digital camera can. As a result, cameras like the Basler MED ace can be useful in motion analysis and therapy. Athletes can use cameras to improve their motions, and physiotherapists and occupational therapists can use them in their regular job.
