UK-based light-source manufacturer CoolLED Ltd. and Tek5 Systems LLC have together established CoolLED USA in Yorktown Heights, N.Y., to support research and OEM users of CoolLED products in the US and Canada. The unit will operate in conjunction with existing distribution networks. CoolLED Ltd., the first to commercialize an LED illumination unit for fluorescence microscopy, develops products for the life sciences and other markets.

The formal agreement was signed during the Neuroscience 2012 meeting.



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.
