Bright, stable and cost-effective illumination
Fluorescence light sources LED1, LED3, LED5 & LED8
Great imaging starts with a bright, stable and cost-effective way of illuminating your sample. With our new LED series you will find the right light source for your fluorescence application.
Whether it’s routine cell culture work, imaging tissue sections or performing advanced imaging experiments, it’s time to switch from your old metal-halide lamp to state-of-the-art LED light sources.
No service needed thanks to long LED life time
Work safely with an environmentally friendly mercury-free LED light source
Better light output stability
Choose the light source suitable for your needs.
Get high-speed and high-throughput performance for your advanced applications such as ratiometric imaging when working with the LED8. It offers highest flexibility amongst the Leica LED light engines. It‘s the perfect companion for your DMi8 or THUNDER Imager 3D Cell Culture or 3D Live Cell.
Maximize speed and minimize photobleaching by triggering your LED8 with Synapse to synchronize illumination with other trigger-controlled system components
High data quality for quantitative imaging and reproducible results thanks to the high output stability and microsecond precision of on/off switching
Perform ratiometric imaging with classical FRET dye combinations, e.g. CFP/YFP, take full advantage of the ever increasing number of available biosensors
Better physiology in long-term live imaging experiments due to lower UV light contamination
