When it comes to LED illuminators for microscope systems versus traditional mercury and metal halide lamps, LED microscope lighting is a clear winner for fluorescence microscopy. But to fully realise the many benefits of LED microscopy illumination, optical filters must be configured correctly. Without the correct filter configuration, experimental conditions can be suboptimal, and results may therefore be inaccurate.
Make your LED Illumination Systems work smarter and take a look at our selection of resources on optical filters:
- Filter Finder tool: Easily find the optimum filter set for your application. The tool also includes CoolLED optimised single-band filters perfectly matched to the spectra of CoolLED LEDs and popular fluorophores. Visit the web page here.
- Tutorial video: We talk you through how filters optimised for microscope LED light sources enhance image quality and enable greater insight into biological samples. Watch the video here.
