LED illumination offers many benefits for calcium imaging, especially when using Fura-2.
But which calcium imaging light source should you choose?
Each Illumination System is suited to different scenarios, which will be explained in our upcoming talk at the 10th European Calcium Workshop in Leuven, Belgium and takes place on the 15th-17th November.
CoolLED pE-800fura: Supercharged calcium imaging and beyond
Building on the successful pE-800 Illumination System, the pE-800fura offers the most comprehensive calcium imaging system available. It also enhances a range of applications from pH monitoring and optogenetics to everyday fluorescence microscopy, combining lightning-fast switching with eight individually controllable channels.
With its broad wavelength range, it’s suitable for various imaging needs. Lightning-fast <7 µs LED switching capabilities allow researchers to transition between multiple excitation wavelengths quickly, making it perfect for accurate ratiometric measurements and capturing extra details during high-speed multi-colour imaging experiments.
CoolLED pE-340fura: Fast, controllable Fura-2 imaging
For those looking for performance primarily for Fura-2 applications, the pE-340fura has you covered. Utilising the award-winning pE-300 Series, its compact and robust design seamlessly integrates into your existing imaging setup.
Cell Biology in the Fast Lane: application insights from Dr Martin Bootman
Concrete evidence often speaks louder than words, and we also complement the talk with data from Dr Martin Bootman’s application note, “Cell Biology in the Fast Lane: Analysing Fast Cellular Processes with LED Microscopy Illumination
