See the invisible at a glance with the Q Cell’s advanced Spectral Scopes

Seeing only three colors with the conventional Medical “SCOPES”, i.e. Dermoscopes, Endoscopes, Clinical Microscopes, is not enough! Human tissues are complex structures and quite often different abnormalities are perceived with similar hues, leading to inconclusive examinations.

Traditional Medical “Scopes” (Dermoscopes, Endoscopes, Clinical Microscopes) are simple color camera-based magnifying lens systems. Their most advanced versions integrate digital imaging technologies, offering several advantages in documentation and communication

Significant diagnostic information can be gained, in vivo, with multichannel imaging, spanning both the visible and the invisible portions of the optical spectrum. Spectral Imaging emerges as the technology of choice for improving the accuracy of in vivo diagnosis, limiting the need of invasive biopsies. However, conventional scanning spectral imaging technologies are far from being clinically implementable, as they fail to offer real-time imaging, a key requirement in clinical inspections.


QCELL’s Spectral View Scopes add new dimensions of information in real time. Multichannel, live imaging in both the visible and the non visible portions of the spectrum, together with spectral mapping uncover the underlaying microstructural alterations, empowering clinical diagnosis.

On the contrary, the spectral class color-coding of Spectral View mapping is clearly pathology-specific: white for the melanoma and red for the dysplastic mole

Transforming precision agriculture with the power of Spectral Vision​

The QCELL’s PhenoChecker camera is a battery operated, wearable/handheld, macro-imaging system for the in situ monitoring of crops. It is a powerful tool for analyzing plants, fruits, flowers, seeds etc., offering objective and quantitative information for assessing and monitoring their condition.​

The PhenoChecker camera displays, in real time, vegetation index and spectral maps in both reflectance, fluorescence imaging modes. The camera integrates a proprietary dome illumination module for isolating ambient light and for ensuring glare-free imaging.​

Spectral phenotype mapping informs about the presence of pathogens, viruses, pests, water and nutrient stress. It also offers an objective means for the assessment of fruit ripening, for predicting the optimal harvest time. By integrating all these unique features, PhenoChecker comprises a valuable tool for controlling and optimizing farming, towards reducing the use of fertilizers, pesticides and water.

The PhenoChecker camera is a powerful tool for the in situ non-destructive analysis of crops. It brinks the diagnostic power of spectral imaging in your hands and the modern agri-tech revolution in your business. Please take a few moments to explore what our PhenoChecker camera can do for you. Take me to the Crop Imaging Pages

Harnessing light for enhancing underwater vision​

Turbid waters often restrict underwater visibility to less than 1m, posing a natural obstacle for the inspection of manmade or natural subaqueous objects. QCELL brings the Spectral Vision technology to address one of the most challenging and high-impact problems in maritime operations: Clear imaging in turbid waters.​

SpectralSea is a video rate spectral imager offering a physics-based primary enhancement of the underwater visibility, which is complemented with advanced, real-time algorithms recognizing and deconvolving the scattering component. The SpectralSea camera comes with an 200 m (or smaller) cable for both data and power transmission. It can be uploaded on Autonomous (uncrewed) Underwater Vehicles (AUV) or Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV), transferring, at a video rate, spectral images and spectral maps to a host computer, installed in remote locations.

SpectralSea camera is an important innovation for biofouling inspection in turbid/murky waters and for supporting ship-hull cleaning decisions thus delivering large savings to the shipping industry, while, at the same time, protecting the environment though the reduction of fuel consumption. It also comprises the today’s best technology, offering maximum visibility for inspecting fish farms and aquatic plants, as well as for marine archelogy and marine research.

The SpectralSea camera acquires live color and spectral images simultaneously. The left side image is what conventional cameras can “see” in a resolution target submerged in turbid waters. The right-hand image is what the SpectralSea camera “sees” in real time in exactly the same conditions. All target’s details became visible with great clarity ​
