CoolLED’s OEM technology is centred on the Amora Series: our proven off-the-shelf product range adapted to offer unparalleled customisation opportunities. This provides you with an efficient and low-risk solution, while also addressing the specific needs of your application.
Whether you need to excite a defined fluorophore set or illuminate between a broad range, we’ve got you covered:
- The choice of LEDs is increasing all the time, currently covering from 340 – 850 nm.
- Choose from one to twelve discrete LED channels.
- Range of filter options for maximum compatibility, from no filters to inline excitation filters supplied by CoolLED or by you.
Interfacing the light source to your instrument depends on optimising mechanical coupling and optical configuration, and we offer several options:
- Industry-standard liquid light guide.
- Direct fit involving opto-mechanical adaptors for a cost-effective increase in irradiance.
- Ask us about other options such as fibre bundles.
LED illumination is renowned for the range of sophisticated control options available, and we will aim to achieve your exact requirements based around:
- Simple on/off per channel.
- Global (white light) level on/off.
- Individual and global irradiance control options.
This could be achieved through USB (Windows, GUI and serial command language), TTL for high-speed switching (0-5 V <20 µs), or Analogue for high-speed switching and irradiance control (0-10 V, 0-50 kHz). Breakout cables are also available to interface to your system.
CoolLED illumination technology offers powerful, homogenous illumination with a range of repeatable control options. We will develop a solution to match performance with your system requirements, such as:
- Irradiance (mW/mm2) at the sample plane as a measure of light output.
- Stability of high-speed switching.
Design and manufacture are performed to the highest standards in line with ISO certification. We have many years of experience in providing Illumination Systems meeting a range of compliance and certification needs, such as:
- Supplying customers who manufacture FDA-approved instruments.
- Complying with directives and standards (CE, LVD, EMC etc.).

What Our Clients Say
Andor has worked with CoolLED to transition multiple product lines to the use of LED illumination in place of older technologies. This allows us to take advantage of new levels of illumination stability and synchronised device control to enhance our products in a competitive market place. As well as meeting stringent worldwide compliance needs, CoolLED has also been extremely reactive to our specific needs when it comes to optimisation of their solution to our hardware and therefore target applications.
CoolLED has provided Aurox with an OEM version of the popular and versatile pE-300ultra that mechanically, optically and electronically integrates with Aurox’s new Unity. The powerful pE-300ultra Light Source sits directly inside the casing of Unity and enables full control of intensity and switching from within Unity’s software. CoolLED is a valued partner in our supply chain, providing excellent levels of service and support at all stages. We have developed a high degree of trust and a seamless working relationship.
We received a CoolLED Illumination System prototype which was integrated and tested over February 2017. The first microscope with a CoolLED Illumination System was sold just later that year. In addition to meeting technical specifications, CoolLED was very quick to react to changes in our situation and provide appropriate solutions.
We needed a branded offering to package with our range of microscopy cameras. CoolLED has worked with us to deliver a solution which is simple to demonstrate and sell while complementing our own market leading products. They have also worked with our purchasing, logistics and support teams to ensure a quality experience for us and most importantly, our customers.
Medipan has used CoolLED LED Illumination Systems for many years. The ability to control the excitation intensity of our assays for sample analysis has been crucial for the successful performance of our Aklides system. Instant on/off control through our system software means that illumination is fully integrated with the product. CoolLED has worked closely with Medipan as we have developed our products to ensure compatibility and performance. A responsive helpful supplier allows our scientists and engineers to focus on our core capabilities when developing products for the life sciences.
