Exfo light Sources for Microscopes

X-Cite® 120Q


The X-Cite® 120Q microscope light source system uses a 120-watt lamp to deliver rich spectral fluorescence excitation with a uniformly illuminated field of view. The proprietary Intelli-Lamp® provides more than 2000 hours of life. The lamp is pre-aligned so changing it is a simple, one-step process. The optional adjustable iris allows the user to set the level of illumination. Ideally suited for fluorescence illumination in routine assays and as a microscope light source for use in multi-user facilities.

Features

X-Cite® Radiometer

The X-Cite® Radiometer enables calibration of the
X-Cite® exacte fluorescence illumination system, for the ultimate in repeatability, stability, control and consistency. It is a fact that mercury lamp output degrades over time, and working in relative units means intensity settings are not easily repeatable. Calibrate illumination in watts with the X-Cite® Radiometer for repeatable intensity levels and consistent results.

Features

Benefits

Calibrates illumination intensity Ensures repeatability of illumination levels for comparable experiment results
Designed specifically for the X-Cite® exacte Easy to use, one-touch calibration with no additional hardware or software required
Stand-alone device One Radiometer can be used to service multiple fluorescence illumination systems, keeping equipment costs low
Calibrated using certified transfer standard, NIST* traceable Assurance of accuracy; each X-Cite® Radiometer is accompanied by a certificate of calibration
