LED fluorescence illumination devices that provide a simple solution for microscope users wishing to upgrade their microscope for fluorescence applications.

New from Eikonix, the imaging specialists, is a range of LED fluorescence illumination devices that provide a simple solution for microscope users wishing to upgrade their microscope for fluorescence applications.

The MF-LED module which has built-in coloured LED’s can easily upgrade a traditional infinity upright microscope to give fluorescence functionality. It is optically compatible with many popular microscope brands such as Olympus, Nikon, Leica, Zeiss and others. This highly efficient module using energy saving LED’s can turn a basic microscope into an epi fluorescence microscopy quickly and easily with no special skills required.

The modules use long life LED lamps which require no warm up time or cooling to provide high levels of fluorescence in samples. With 50,000 hours of life there is little requirement to replace bulbs as in traditional lighting configurations. Four versions are available to cover excitation ranges from 330nm up to 550nm

The MF-BG fluorescence illuminator combines two excitation groups [blue and green] into a single device giving user a wider choice of applications. A simple pull lever permits easy selection of the right filter set depending on the illumination chosen.

The MI-BG-LED module is used for inverted microscopes while the MZX-BG-LED series LED fluorescent illumination is designed to upgrade stereo microscopes.

Says Eikonix: “These simple devices offer the microscope use a low cost and easy upgrade route into fluorescence microscopy”.
