Brightfield Microscope Illuminator

Kessil Photoredox PR160L

"The B-Series LED light source by ScopeLED has multiple advantages over a standard halogen or white light source. Illumination is completely flat, there is no uneveness across the entire image field, and each color can be controlled individually through software and TTL allowing rapid sequential collection of color corrected images. Finally it is far less expensive than a standard light source (less than half the price) and has no parts that need to be replaced for the entire lifetime of the unit."

- Dr. Simon Watkins, Distinguished Professor and Vice Chair, Cell Biology, University of Pittsburgh

ScopeLED's B-Series microscopy illuminators replace conventional halogen light sources used for a variety of transmitted and reflected light applications, such as bright-field, dark-field, phase contrast, polarized light and DIC. The heart of the B-Series illuminators is DiCon's high performance Dense Matrix LED™ Array. Using advanced thermal design, it offers vibration-free fan-less cooling with a high intensity optically stable light output. The RGB model allows any quantitative black and white camera to function as a high speed monochrome or color imaging system by utilizing separate controls for Red, Green and Blue light. Adjusting the intensity of each color with respective analog voltage and switching between each color with respective TTL triggers eliminates the need for a color camera. Our non-phosphor RGB version is inert to laser excitation allowing it to be used as a self shuttering light source within any confocal or widefield fluorescence microscopy system. This high-powered LED is easily able to illuminate multi-headed microscope configurations of over 10 viewing stations using objectives from 1X all the way up to and including 100X oil immersion. With over 30,000 hours of LED lifetime and low power consumption, the ScopeLED B-Series illuminators are the smart, reliable and economic alternative to halogen bright-field illuminators.

Application Outcomes

"Triggering of the individual LEDs on the ScopeLED RGB illuminator is an easy way to rapidly acquire RGB images using a grayscale camera. We have been able to acquire RGB images at up to 30 fps in this manner."
