Aurox has selected a range of metal halide and LED based fluorescence light sources which are compatible with the Clarity and are ideal for applications in live cell imaging.
CoolLED's pE-300Ultra offers intense, broad-spectrum LED illumination for imaging the most common fluorescent stains with microsecond switching via multiple TTL inputs and the ability to mount inline excitation filters.
Pairing with high performance multi band filter sets enables imaging traditionally requiring a white light source and filter wheel.
The CoolLED pE-4000 is a broad spectrum (365-770 nm) illumination system for fluorescence microscopy with 16 selectable LED wavelengths that can be matched to the filters and fluorophores of almost any microscope.
For consistency and ease of use the system can be operated as a ‘White’ illumination system using simple on/off and intensity buttons, or in “Advanced” mode for total control of the excitation source for improved imaging and for selection and control of individual wavelength settings.
The Prior Scientific Lumen 200 PRO is a 200W metal arc lamp fluorescence illumination system designed for use with fully automated microscopy systems.
Located remote from the microscope for no vibration, the Lumen 200 PRO has an integrated six position motorised filter wheel for fast switching of the excitation wavelength and motorised light attenuation and shuttering. This allows intensity selection over 100 increments for balancing exposure with the sensitivity of your cells and fluorescent markers.
The Lumen 220 PRO model offers extended transmission in UV and IR.
The Excelitas X-Cite 120PC Q is a computer controlled fluorescence microscope light source offering rich spectral sample excitation and a uniformly illuminated field of view from a 120W lamp which has been pre-aligned for convenience and has a guaranteed 2000 hours lifetime.
The X-cite 120PC Q also features software control and a standard adjustable iris, which may help minimise photo-bleaching.

The Excelitas X-Cite 120LEDBoost is a broad spectrum (370-700nm) LED light source for fluorescence microscopy, which efficiently excites a wide range of fluorophores, including the popular red fluorophores.
Designed for optimal imaging and data reliability the X-Cite 120LEDBoost provides maximum stability over time with superior optical power and exceptional field uniformity at the specimen.
Since the LEDs are guaranteed for 25000 hours and there no lamps or modules to replace, the X-Cite 120LEDBoost offers sheer simplicity and convenience allowing you to focus on your research instead of equipment maintenance.
