CoolLED announce Fast, Controllable LED Illumination for Fura-2

pe340

Xenon be gone, peak through the slit and be LED into the light…the pE-340fura.

As they bask in the success of their new brighter world, the magicians in the CoolLED cave have been working furiously into the night driven by their favourite calcium enriched drinks. Achieved through partnership with The University of Strathclyde, CoolLED are excited to announce the latest leap forward in LED illumination for microscopy. Utilizing the highly successful pE-300 Series platform, the pE-340fura is a bespoke LED Illumination System for Fura-2 ratiometric calcium imaging, which also supports everyday fluorescence microscopy in a compact and affordable package.

New from Thorlabs: Stabilized Silicon Nitride Globar Light Source: 550 nm - 15 µm

SL303

  • Globar Source for 550 nm - 15 µm
  • 4.5 W Output Power Collimated in a Ø35 mm Beam
  • Low Power Fluctuations of <0.05% within 1 Hour
  • Optical Drift: 0.01% per Hour / 0.2% per °C
  • 60 mm Cage System Compatible
  • Manual Shutter

Thorlabs' new Silicon Nitride Globar Lamp is designed to provide 4.5 W of free-space illumination over the 550 nm - 15 µm range. An internal feedback system is employed to achieve a highly stable power output (0.05% fluctuation). The high-power output is collimated into a Ø35 mm beam for free-space applications. An aluminum reflector collects light from the silicon nitride Globar element and reflects it towards the front of the housing in order to maximize the output power. The mirror alignment is factory set to maximize the output, but it can also be adjusted by the user using the three adjustment knobs on the back of the housing.
