The S5LPJ7201/M42 telecentric lens with a magnification of 1:1 by Sill Optics offers high resolution for a sensor diagonal up to 32mm (APS format). It shows high imaging performance down to pixel size 2.4µm and is suitable for monochrome and color sensors with Bayer-pattern. Additionally, it can be used in NIR applications (800-900nm) with high transmission and good imaging performance down to 3.45µm pixel size. The lens closes a gap between C-mount lenses and full-frame sensors. However, the attractive price also allows the application for sensors between 1” and 1.5”. The lens has an M42x1 mount with 40mm flange focal length, with alternative mounts (C-mount, F-mount, M35x0.75) available on request.
The Vial Scanner by Schäfter+Kirchhoff (www.sukhamburg.com) was developped for the in-situ imaging of Drosophila pupae and for automated measurement of their size.
