Working with Microscope Illumination Experts
Fluorescence microscopy is an extremely demanding application for LED illumination, in terms of irradiance, homogeneity, spectral spread and control. The light must be intense enough across the spectrum to excite a variety of fluorescent labels, and homogenous across the field of view to achieve precise information from across the sample. Moreover, tight control must capture dynamic events happening within biological materials.
While many off-the-shelf microscope illuminators are available to suit a range of applications, something out of the ordinary is sometimes required in order to deliver the best results. This is because custom configurations often come with their own set of unique challenges, such as thermal management. Manufacturers wishing to gain a competitive advantage with their product can therefore benefit greatly from working with world-class microscope illumination experts.
