For Medical & Life Sciences

Use MED ace cameras for your application in medicine, medical technology and life sciences. The cameras are ISO 13485:2016-compliant and convince with best image quality, reliability and long-term availability. They also have special MED feature sets.

Basler MED Feature Sets

MED Feature Sets are as versatile as your applications in medicine, medical technology, and life sciences. They are part of every MED ace camera and combine specially developed hardware, firmware, and software functions for superior performance.

Dust protection

Dust Protection+

Optical systems in medical & life sciences applications must meet special requirements for cleanliness. Dust Protection provides for this by requiring cleanroom production of all MED ace cameras, conducting stringent tests for dust and other particles, and finally by sealing the camera’s sensor compartment.

Brilliant Image

Brilliant Image

From the very first time you connect your MED ace camera, you will receive the best image quality. Thanks to Brilliant Image, these cameras feature outstanding automatic image optimization functions in addition to optimized wake-up settings and Basler’s PGI algorithm.

Perfect color

Perfect Color

Sensitive applications, such as those in microscopy and ophthalmology, require individual color setting options. With Perfect Color, you can control the color reproduction yourself by adjusting settings for hue, saturation, brightness, and contrast either across the entire image or for individual colors.

Low Light Imaging

Low Light Imaging

Get excellent image quality, even in low light. Fluorescence applications, among others, require long exposure times. Thanks to modern CMOS sensor technology and our long exposure mode, you can generate Low Light Imaging to produce the best quality images despite low ambient light.


Other MED Feature Sets

Easy Compliance

Basler manufactures, distributes, and supports all MED ace camera models according to ISO 13485:2016 standards. In addition, we comply with all relevant standard conformities such as CE, UL, EMC Class B, CISPR Class B, and FCC Class B, respectively.

Industrial Excellence

We test our cameras intensively. The high quality together with our pylon software package and our individual customer support means easy camera integration and best image quality for you.

High Speed

To achieve high speed, e.g. in laboratory automation, fast cameras are required. Global shutter, CMOS sensor technology and USB 3.0 interface enable frame rates of up to 164 fps with the MED ace.
