LED1

Performing routine fluorescence applications such as checking cells for transfection, multi-color fluorescence documentation and simple time-lapse experiments the LED1 is your choice.

The versatile solid-state light source offers white light or 4 individual colors in the 380-650nm range. Perfect for usage in combination with our routine microscopes DM2500, or DM4 B.

Your Benefits

  • Training-free and fast use – no need to start a software: Simply turn the knob to adjust intensity
  • Improve signal-to-background thanks to manually switch from white to either of the 4 colors imaging
  • Synchronize illumination with camera exposure and minimize photobleaching by triggering your LED1

LED3

Performing multi-color fluorescence microscopy, long-term time-lapse experiments or stereo microscopy applications many times requires a bright and stable white light source that can be combined with a range of filter sets. Are you looking for such an allrounder? Our most powerful LED3 is the right choice.

The LED3 is triggerable and offers white light in the 390-680nm range.

Your Benefits

  • Reliable data and less artifacts thanks to higher stability of light output
  • Image low expressing fluorescence fusion proteins under physiological conditions with outstanding brightness
  • Low phototoxicity and low photobleaching for long-term experiments thanks to synchronization of illumination with camera exposure by triggering the LED3
