microscope light source
Enabling high-speed color transmitted light microscopy with monochrome cameras.
LIDA light engine is designed to work hand-in-hand with the latest monochrome cameras to generate RGB color transmitted light images with unprecedented sensitivity, spatial resolution, speed and color fidelity. LIDA integrates three solid state sources, including Lumencor’s patented green luminescent light pipe, with the sophisticated control electronics required for high speed synchronization of light output with camera exposure. Transmitted light images are captured in one electronically controlled high-speed sequence.
Variances associated with moving parts are eliminated, resulting in perfect alignment of pixel-registered images across the wide fields of view afforded by modern sCMOS cameras. Independent control of the intensity of the three component light sources allows balanced color rendition without resorting to extensive post-processing of images.
