The system is a mercury-free alternative that is safer and more controllable than conventional high-pressure gas discharge illuminators. Spectral coverage is from the UV (DAPI excitation) to the Red region (Cy5 excitation). The system is perfect for hospital and research laboratory environments.
DAPI can be excited at either 365nm or 400nm and microscopes typically have a filter set which allows one or other of these wavelengths to be transmitted. To accommodate this, the pE-300lite can be specified in one of two waveband configurations to match with the user’s existing filter sets within the microscope.
LED products are more sustainable and energy efficient than conventional illuminators. CoolLED's products have the following benefits:
- Energy Efficient: 80% less power
- Long lifetime (25,000 operating hours)
- No bulb replacements
- Reduced risk of eye damage
- Quiet operation
- No special disposal regulations or issues
