F-Series Fluorescence Microscope Illuminator

"The ScopeLED F-Series LED light source is a fantastic alternative light source for fluorescence microscopy. The DAPI and GFP channels are breathtakingly bright; easily twice as bright as any other source I have in the Facility."

- Dr. Steven Ruzin, Director, Biological Imaging Facility, University of California, Berkeley


ScopeLED's F-Series LED based Fluorescence Microscope Illuminators are designed to replace conventional metal halide and mercury arc lamp sources for fluorescence microscopy applications. The heart of the F-Series illuminator is our high performance LED light engine with our advanced thermal design, yielding very high intensity and optically stable light output. The F-Series design offers the most compact illumination source in the industry, directly coupled to the microscope's epi-fluorescence illumination port. ScopeLED offers wavelengths from 390nm to 740nm in single, dual, or quadruple wavelength models. With over 30,000 hours of LED lifetime and low power consumption, ScopeLED is the bright, affordable, efficient, and environmentally friendly solution for wide-field fluorescence applications.
