What’s New in Custom Microscopy Illumination?
The latest custom microscopy illumination technology can offer many benefits when building a microscope-based system for applications such as high-content screening or slide scanning.
Illumination can be a complex topic and many variables must be considered – not least spectral coverage, irradiance and speed. First and foremost, you also need to decide between metal halide, lasers and LEDs. LED illumination technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace, overtaking the performance of metal halide lamps, and in some cases even offering a viable alternative to lasers.
Following several breakthrough advances, LEDs are now often considered the go-to option for microscopy illumination.
