Chroma Technology Corp. has released the PhotoFluor, a high-output light source for fluorescence microscopy. The device combines a metal halide lamp with a sputtered heat-blocking optic to deliver light across the range from 340 to 650 nm. It allows bright imaging of DAPI, Hoechst and other UV-absorbing fluorochromes. Lamp life is ~2000 h, and the lamp exhibits minimal decrease in output over time. It features a five-position discrete neutral density wheel and an easy-to-use display and user interface.
