Fluorescence Microscopy

Live Cell & Fixed Cell Imaging

Fluorescence microscopy requires an intense light source at the specific wavelength that will excite fluorescent dyes and proteins. Traditional methods utilize a white light that is typically from a mercury or xenon arc lamp. With these traditional methods, only a small percentage of the projected light is useful in any particular application. Phoseon engineers LED light sources for widefield fluorescence microscopy. LEDs use specific targeted wavelengths with much less need to suppress unwanted wavelengths from a white light arc lamp. 

KeyLight™ illumination systems from Phoseon offer OEMs reliable, high-performance imaging for laboratory instruments, automated microscopy instruments, medical device illumination, and high content screening applications. KeyLight delivers intense, broad-spectrum UV and visible wavelengths for a wide variety of colors between 340nm and 760nm. These compact light sources support 3, 4, 5 or 6 channel systems with customizable wavelengths and UV intensity for greater flexibility depending on the application requirements. The product form factor and control options are designed specifically to support each type of OEM instrument. 

KeyLight Benefits:

• Small form factor for easy integration
• High performance imaging
• Cost and energy savings
• Compact architecture supports various optical fiber sizes
• Optimized for various numerical aperture requirements
• Low maintenance with mercury-free operation
