Integrating your microscope illuminator into imaging software is the most efficient way to configure complex imaging experiments. We are now pleased to announce that the pE-800 Illumination System is fully supported in Molecular Devices MetaMorph imaging software. More information is available in the Summary sheet.
The pE-800 is also fully integrated into Nikon NIS Elements, µManager, Hamamatsu HCImage and Incscoper. For users of other imaging software such as Olympus cellSens, the pE-6501-8 USB controlled TTL trigger box enables seamless integration.
About the pE-800 Illumination System
Since its launch in October 2020, the 8-channel pE-800 LED Illumination System has seen LEDs take centre stage as the widefield illumination method of choice, owing to its stability, flexibility and high-speed control – amongst other benefits.
- Fluorescence freedom: Eight powerful LEDs offer broad spectral coverage from 365-740 nm for use with fluorophores ranging from DAPI to Cy7.
- Optimised experiments with superior control: All eight channels can be controlled individually via digital, analogue or software (USB 2.0). Users of MetaMorph, NIS Elements, µManager, HCImage and Incscoper benefit from full software integration, while the intuitive CoolLED LightBridge also offers comprehensive control options.
- Ideal for live cell imaging: Industry-leading <7 µs TTL triggering is a breakthrough for capturing high-speed events in unprecedented detail. Precise hardware synchronisation for each channel alongside the ability to fit inline excitation filters overcomes the latency restrictions of mechanical movement when used alongside multi-band filter sets.
- Affordable automation: When combined with the unique 8-channel Sequence Runner, illumination sequences can be triggered with a single TTL out of a camera, transforming a manual microscope into an affordable and powerful eight-channel automated imaging system.
- Protecting your samples: Phototoxicity and photobleaching can easily be minimised by <7 µs TTL hardware synchronisation and fine irradiance control from 0-2% and then in 1% steps to 100%.
