Recent developments in the application of LED technology have resulted in illumination systems offering increased brightness for fluorescence microscopy. As well as requiring intensities to excite common fluorophores such as DAPI, FITC and the growing range of RFPs, the ability to excite into the ultra violet (UV) and near infra-red (NIR) is both desirable and becoming possible.
CoolLED is meeting these demands with its new generation of LED illumination systems.
The pE-300white is the perfect solution for regular fluorescence with its broad band of excitation from DAPI (user specified at either 365 or 400nm) to Cy5. Intensities are up to five times that which was achieved in the previous generation of pE-series LED illumination. The system can be specified in direct fit mode or with a 3mm diameter liquid light guide (LLG). With the widest range of microscope adaptors available, the system can be fitted to all current and many older microscopes.
