Choosing a light source for transmitted illumination
Transmitted illumination techniques such as brightfield, darkfield and phase contrast have in the past relied upon standard halogen lamps. Since LEDs for microscopy illumination arrived on the market in 2006, this has become the go-to approach and many scientists now rely on LEDs. Whether specialising in electrophysiology or spending long hours at the microscope inspecting PCBs or pathology samples, LEDs offer a wealth of benefits over traditional lamps.
CoolLED and transmitted illumination
CoolLED designs and manufactures cutting edge microscopy Illumination Systems for scientists and clinicians using the latest LED technology.
Since we introduced the first commercially available LED Illumination System in 2006, we have led the way in transforming light source technology for transmitted illumination and fluorescence microscopy. Now we are a fast-growing company in Hampshire with a vast product range and technical expertise spanning optical engineering and the life sciences.
