General Purpose
Microscopy & Behaviour

The SCE-series is Mightex’s entry level general purpose microscopy camera. The SCE-series is a low-cost imaging solution featuring a 1/3″ MP CMOS sensor with 5.2um x 5.2um size pixels. SCE-series camera has a 20fps frame rate at full resolution and higher framre rates can be achieved in ROI mode. Applications include, transmitted light microscope and wide-field imaging in research or teaching lab environments. The low-cost of the SCE_series camera makes it a great choice as a general purpose microscopy camera.


  • Transmitted light microscopy
  • Live-cell imaging
  • Teaching lab equipment
