YORKTOWN HEIGHTS, N.Y., Nov. 22, 2012 — UK-based light-source manufacturer CoolLED Ltd. has teamed up with Tek5 Systems LLC to support research and OEM users of CoolLED products in the US and Canada.

The new business, CoolLED USA, will operate in conjunction with existing distribution networks.

CoolLED, of Andover, UK, was the first to commercialize an LED illumination unit for fluorescence microscopy; today, it continues to develop products for the life sciences and other markets.

Tek5 systems of Yorktown Heights specializes in microscope and instrument automation with a range of optoprecision components and accessories. The company has provided microscope stages and peripherals for more than 20 years.

The formal agreement was signed during the Neuroscience 2012 meeting in New Orleans.

GLOSSARY
fluorescence
The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
illumination
The general term for the application of light to a subject. It should not be used in place of the specific quantity illuminance.
