CoolLED designs and manufactures cutting edge LED illumination systems for researchers and clinicians using the latest LED technology.

LED IlluminationThe company has specialised in fluorescence microscopy since it introduced the first commercially available LED illumination system in 2006. LEDs are now the system of choice because they are more stable, longer lasting, and energy efficient than traditional mercury-based illuminators as well as offering superior safety and environmental features.

CoolLED offers a comprehensive range of LED illumination systems for bioscience and clinical microscopy including:

  • pE-100 range of compact, simple-to-use, single wavelength illumination systems for screening fluorescence.
  • pE-300 Series – A compact range of triple wavelength LED illumination systems for fluorescence, Optogenetics, Electrophysiology and other high-speed applications designed to fit all major microscopes and with the broadest range available of software control:
    • pE-300lite – is a simple system that uses the same award-winning LED technology as our more sophisticated LED illumination systems, available at a cost which makes it accessible to all.  Simple White Light – simple to buy, fit and use.
    • pE-300white –  provides a broad spectrum of LED illumination,  covering the excitation bands of common fluorescent stains.  Operation is by a remote manual control pod with instant on/off and intensity control from 0-100%.  Remote control is available via USB or TTL trigger.
    • pE-300ultra – the most controllable member of the pE-300 Series.  In addition to the many features of the pE-300lite and the pE-300white, the system offers precise control over individual wavelength intensity and triggering.  Until now these benefits have only been accessible to users of high end, highly flexible illuminators such as the CoolLED pE-4000
  • pE- 4000 – the universal LED illumination system for research fluorescence, with the broadest spectrum of illumination available from 16 selectable wavelengths, and extensive functionality that sets a new standard for the industry.
  • pE-340fura –  Utilising the successful pE-300 Series platform, the pE-340fura is a bespoke LED Illuminator for Fura-2 ratiometric calcium imaging, which also supports everyday fluorescence microscopy in a compact and affordable package. 
  • pT-100 – Utilising the highly successful pE-100wht  technology, the pT-100 for transmitted light applications is available in 4 variants: Broad white output – pT-100-WHT (formerly known as pE-100wht ), and 3 narrower bandwidths 525nm, 635nm and 770nm.  These variants can provide solutions for a range of transmitted imaging techniques including brightfield, darkfield, DIC, Dodt gradient contrast and phase contrast.

CoolLED technology is also available in OEM and tailor-made configurations. We meet the needs of manufacturers who wish to integrate stable, controllable LED illumination into their products.
