Description

Epi-Fluorescent:
Microscope with Epi-Fluorescence is an optical microscope that uses fluorescence and phosphorescence instead of, or in addition to, reflection and absorption to study properties of organic or inorganic substances. The “fluorescence microscope” refers to any microscope that uses fluorescence to generate an image, whether it is a more simple set up like an epifluorescence microscope, or a more complicated design such as a confocal microscope, which uses optical sectioning to get better resolution of the fluorescent image.

Intensity from a conventional lamp decreases through its life, which means that illumination varies dramatically over time. The lifetime of LED’s far exceeds that of these older lamps, ex. Mercury, Metal Halide, Xenon models and intensity remains broadly constant throughout its life providing a stable, repeatable light source. Some of the many fluorophores excited by the PE-300 Series are FITC, DAPI, Cy3, Auramine, TxRed, mCherry, TRITC, ChR, Hoechst, Cy5, Calcofluor, RFP to name a few.

The award-winning PE-300 Series is a range of LED Illumination Systems for Fluorescence Microscopy, Optogenetics, Electrophysiology and high-speed microscopy applications. It comprises 3 systems providing a solution that covers a range of everyday fluorescence microscopy; from the simple PE-300L/LEDTC or PE-300L/LEDMT (lite versions) through the classic PE-300W/LEDMT or PE-300W/LEDTC (white versions). The PE-300 Series offers:

   • High intensity at your microscope sample plane – view and image your samples brighter than ever
   • Adjustment of output in 1% steps on all systems – giving precise control whether imaging quickly or for a gentler approach to care for your samples.
   • Spectral coverage for all your everyday fluorophores: DAPI, CFP, Aqua, GFP, FITC, Tritc, TxRed, Cy5 and alike.

The TC-5500CW & TC-5600CW Series is ideal for applications in biology, cell cytology, genetics, oncology, and immunology. It is very well suited for research, universities, routine laboratory, and medical demands.

DAPI can be excited at either 365nm or 400nm and microscopes typically have a filter set which allows one or other of these wavelengths to be transmitted. To accommodate this, the pE-300white can be specified in one of two waveband configurations to match with the user’s existing filter sets within the microscope.

A microscope which is populated with a number of single band (“SB”) filter sets will typically have DAPI excitation at 365nm and a microscope with multi-band (“MB”) filter(s) has excitation at 400nm. The user can specify the configuration which is appropriate for their microscope.

Power consumption
Standby Max 2W
1 band (GYR) at 100% intensity Max 20W

The PE-300L/LEDTC is a simple white light LED illumination system that offers intense, broadspectrum LED illumination for imaging most common fluorescent stains.

The PE-300L/LEDTC Light Source can be fitted directly to the microscope or specified with a liquid light guide. The system is a mercury-free alternative that is safer, more controllable, and repeatable than conventional high-pressure gas discharge illuminators. Spectral coverage is from the UV (DAPI excitation) to the Red region (Cy5 excitation). The system is perfect for hospital and regular research laboratory environments and is affordable within consumables budgets.

DAPI can be excited at either 365nm or 400nm and microscopes typically have a filter set which allows one or other of these wavelengths to be transmitted. To accommodate this, the pE-300lite can be specified in one of two waveband configurations to match with the user’s existing filter sets within the microscope.

ILLUMINATION A powerful 6 volt 30 watt halogen bulb with pre-centered socket provides enhanced image quality and brightness for the observation of specimens.    PE-300L/LEDTC: *LED fluorescence illumination kit, configured for fluorophores such as 6,000.00 DAPI, FITC , TRITC & Cy5, instant on/off with the ability to optimize intensity & minimize sample damage via the simple desktop Control Pod with a manual control pod and power supply (Included in TC-5500CL & TC-5600CL models).          PE-300L/LEDTC features:          – Direct fit to the microscope in seconds          – Broad spectrun – covers UV (DAPI) to Red region (Cy5)          – No alignment, a once only adjustment          – Instant on/off – no shutters required, no warm up or cool down          – Stable and repeatable – reliable and precise results          – Fine intensity control in 1% steps (0-100%) – no ND filters required          – Excellent uniformity over field of view – fixed and stable, no alignment necessary
   PE-300W/LEDTC: *LED fluorescence illumination kit, configured for fluorophores such as DAPI, FITC, TRITC & Cy5, adds greater control options to the platform, 3 channel control pod allows selection and control of excitation wavelength whether its to balance your FITC against your TRITC or to minimize bleaching by exciting only the markers that you are working. Supported by popular imaging software giving integrated control with your imaging set up time after time. An additional benefit of the PE-300W/LEDMT is that stains can be viewed either individually or in combination, without filter cube changes. This makes it ideal for use with multi-band filter sets as the screening process can be simplified when fewer filter cubes are used. Independent control for the three LED channels means that the user can control the level of excitation of each fluorescent stain independently on a multi-stained samples, potentially removing the need for single band filter sets altogether. Instant on/off with the ability to optimize intensity and minimize sample damage via the simple desktop Control Pod with a manual control pod and power supply. (Included in TC-5500CW & TC-5600CW models)          PE-300W/LEDTC features:          – Remote control via USB or TTL trigger          – Three LEDs          – Simple to fit, simple to use: no alignment, a once only adjustment          – Instant on/off – no shutters required, no warm up or cool down          – Stable and repeatable – reliable and precise results          – Precise intensity control in 1% steps (0-100%): no ND filters required
