Lumencor

Lumencor

Lumencor’s proprietary light engines are excitation subsystems. They include:

  • a maximum of six light sources
  • mirrors to direct the light and filters to define the bandpass
  • an adapter to efficiently couple the light to a bioanalytical instrument

The optics and mechanics of coupling are optimized for a fluorescence microscope, high content screener, gene expression chip reader or for a customized tool designed to meet an individual need. All these elements combined constitute a light engine.

Lumencor’s light engine lifetime is on the order of 15,000 hours. That’s usable hours, essentially no warm up time required. Light engines operate via electronic “shutters” within the microsecond time scale and afford fast on/off & intensity control.

Lumencor Spectra X light engine

Spectra X Light Engine™

Lumencor now offers the spectral breadth of an arc lamp and the flexibility of a filter wheel in it’s most powerful and comprehensive light engine design.

The SPECTRA X model has been released to afford the end user the ability to exchange single band pass filters within the light engine. These field replaceable filters mean Lumencor can offer as many as 21 different bandpasses for use within the visible spectrum. No moving parts reside in this SPECTRA model. Lumencor preserves performance in the form of cool, stable, robust, spectrally pure, powerful outputs and now allows the user to make his or her own choices about bandpass during use in the field. This additional flexibility allows individual users, core facilities and OEMs an adaptable solid state excitation subsystem on par with the flexibility of a filter wheel.

This product ships with six independent sources. A suite of seven filters, one for each color band, is included in the purchase. Additional filter paddles and filters may be purchased at any time to increase the range of bandpasses for the ensemble of sources within the light engine.

Each output in the optical train of the light engine remains aligned through filter exchanges, allowing the user to focus on their science and not the need to realign and maintain a light source.

Lumencor Spectra light engine

Spectra Light Engine™

Lumencor’s light engines are unique, solid state illuminators, ideally suited for use with fluorescence microscopes and bioanalytical instruments. SPECTRA light engines enhance overall microscope performance and reduce cost. Flexible designs provide as few as two and as many as seven color bands with a variety of delivery optics.

The SPECTRA is optimized for the most common fluors and fluorescent proteins used in bioanalysis today. Bright outputs cover the visible spectrum and beyond, with particularly impressive performance in the typically underserved visible spectral regions- green, yellow and red. The optically independent outputs are well suited for both live and fixed cell analysis. Bandwidths for any SPECTRA light engine may be tailored for specific spectral needs.

All outputs are optimized for high performance in terms of stable, durable, powerful, switchable light. Output power is independently selectable for each color band. Micro-second switching among color bands (5-10 kHz) is enabled electronically- eliminating all mechanical shuttering. SPECTRA light engines are the ideal choice for customers who wish to address unique spectral bands with independent electronic control in systems critically synchronized with camera exposure times.

SPECTRA light engines may be used with any major brand microscope, connecting via direct couple, liquid light guide or optical fiber. SPECTRA light engines are pre-aligned, require no maintenance, and need no bulb replacements
