The pE-300lite is a simple white light LED illumination unit. It provides a broad spectrum of illumination, covering the excitation bands of common fluorescent stains. Operation is by a remote manual control pod with instant on/off and intensity control from 0-100%.
The system comprises a pE-300lite Light Source, control pod, and power supply. It can be specified with a microscope adaptor for direct fit configuration or with a 3mm diameter liquid light guide if there is a need to keep the source of illumination remote from the microscope. An optional pE-Universal Collimator and microscope adaptor can be selected for use with a liquid light guide.
As a replacement to a metal halide source on a confocal microscope, the liquid light guide configuration is particularly suitable for pre-aligning samples before scanning commences. In this way, photo bleaching of the sample can be minimized when LED illumination is used.
With an expected lifetime in excess of 25,000 on hours and a comprehensive range of microscope adaptors, the pE-300lite can be fitted to most current and older microscopes and operate for many years without aligning or replacing bulbs. The result is a safe, convenient illumination system without any additional operating costs.
There are two pE-300lite configuration options:
for connecting to a microscopes – by selecting from a range of microscope adaptors which covers all current and most older models. A simple once only adjustment will allow optimisation to the optical path of the microscope.
Liquid Light Guide
with a fixed 3mm diameter, liquid light guide. An optional pE-Universal Collimator can be specified in conjunction with a microscope adaptor if required.
