Optimization of multi-color image (1)
Primary culture of rat cortical neurons, excitation and detection settings were adjusted to optimal image contrast.

Optimization of multi-color image (2)
Paramecium stained with 7 dyes excitable in the visible range. Good separation and high image contrast for all 7 colors are possible due to the tunable excitation wavelengths.

Full spectral characterization using LightGate
The rectangular lambda square plot displays full spectral information. This information is useful to investigate samples with complex or unknown fluorescence and to characterize new developed fluorophores.
The grey line within the graphical definition window indicates excitation = detection.
