What’s new in microscopy illumination?
Microscopy illumination systems can often be overlooked when configuring a microscope setup – whether that is for widefield fluorescence or transmitted light applications. However, the type and amount of light hitting the sample plane will make or break an experiment. While microscopy illumination systems have evolved and highly controllable, 8-channel illumination systems are now available, to reach the full potential of this technology it is crucial to optimise not only the illumination but other components such as optical filters. Read on to find out more about the latest developments in microscopy illumination, and which components to consider for bright, high-contrast images and quality data.
CoolLED and microscopy illumination
CoolLED designs and manufactures cutting edge LED microscopy Illumination Systems for researchers and clinicians using the latest LED technology.
Since our team of four introduced the first commercially available LED illumination system for fluorescence microscopy in 2006, we have led the way in transforming microscopy illumination for fluorescence and transmitted applications. Now we are a fast-growing company in Hampshire, UK, with a vast product range and technical expertise spanning optical engineering and the life sciences.
