Multi-spectral Solid-state Excitation Source

Lumencor’s SPECTRA X light engine is a bright, 7-channel, solid-state light source for epi-fluorescence imaging.

Fast electronics, of the order of 10s of microseconds, make switching colors with this light engine orders of magnitude faster than a standard filter wheel, where mechanical constraints limit switching times to of the order of 100 milliseconds.

SPECTRA X light engines connect to the microscope’s epi-fluorescence illuminator via liquid light guide connection, for the highest intensity performance. Light engines require no maintenance, no bulbs, no alignment and are mercury free and RoHS compliant.
