ROCKLAND, Mass., March 9, 2012 — Prior Scientific Inc. has announced the newest addition to its Lumen series fluorescence illumination systems.
The Lumen 200S has a robust internal high-speed shutter and a variety of control options, including RS-232, USB, transistor-transistor logic and via the company’s ProScan III controller shutter port. The system features a 2000-h lifetime and a 200-W metal arc lamp with a stabilized DC power supply for consistent illumination. It offers a 2- or 3-m lightguide and an easy-to-view display screen for bulb life indication.
With quiet operation and a six-position adjustable aperture/intensity knob to protect samples from photobleaching, the L200S is suitable for laboratory use. Adapters are available for all modern microscopes. Also available is the Lumen 220S model, which offers the same features along with an extended spectral output.
