GRANTS PASS, Ore., Sept. 15, 2015 — Suitable for both end users and OEMs, a dual-wavelength excitation light source from Siskiyou Corp. may be used in optongenetics and other life sciences applications.
The IS-LEDc combines the output from two LEDs, focusing their light into a single SMA fiber optic connector, which can then be coupled to standard-format upright microscopes. The device is permanently aligned to eliminate challenges of coupling LED output into fiber.
A controller provides a software and USB interface to enable full digital and independently addressable control of each LED, including external triggering.
The device is available with a choice of any two LEDs from a range of visible and near-infrared center wavelengths, including 460, 525, 590, 735 and 850 nm. Nominal power output is 5 W at each wavelength, with other powers available on a custom basis.
Applications range from optogenetics stimulation to widefield microscopy and fluorescence imaging of microwell arrays.
