Lumencor light sources for bioanalysis and microscopy
Innovative solid-state light sources
Lumencor designs and manufactures light sources based on a combination of LED and solid-state technology. They are intended to replace conventional lamp sources, such as those used in life science microscopy and bioanalysis.
Lumencor has set itself the goal of developing innovative light sources for fast, sensitive and accurate measuring equipment. Lumencors expertise lies in analytical chemistry, material science, solid-state physics and optics. With that expertise they make light sources for researchers and producers to stimulate innovative development with analytical and diagnostic instruments.
Lumencor light source technology is a breakthrough in the development of such systems. It makes it possible to operate several light sources independently of each other in a unique optical configuration. A large number of discrete spectral bands within the UV-VIS-NIR spectrum can be selected independently of each other. All this packed in a compact and easy-to-operate housing.
Lumencors light sources have a high light intensity and at the same time the durability, stability, switching speed and flexibility of solid-state lighting.
Products by Lumencor
SOLA white light source; a mature solid-state replacement for gas discharge lamps. The SOLA provides continuous white light from 380nm to 680nm. Software control is possible from any large microscope brand; compatibility has been ensured.
Compared to conventional metal-halide lamps, this light source offers cool light; stable, robust and UV / IR free. Alignment problems of conventional lights can no longer occur; the solid-state SOLA has an expected service life of more than 15,000 hours and a 3-year warranty. Moreover, the SOLA has a light-blanking function for integration with high-end cameras.
SPECTRA-III; a powerful, clear, stable, durable and switchable light source. The light spectrum is optimized for the most commonly used fluorophores. 7 independent outputs cover the entire visible spectrum, so that you can perfectly adjust the output to your specific experiment.
SPECTRA-X; a powerful, clear, stable, durable and switchable light source, in a version with 6 independent internal sources. The SPECTRA-X offers the user the possibility to change bandpass filters themselves. Lumencor can supply up to 21 different filters in the VIS spectrum. This allows you to perfectly adjust the spectrum to your application. The unit does NOT use filter wheels; there are no moving parts.
