CAMBRIDGE, England — The Lumen 200S metal halide illumination system from Prior Scientific Instruments Ltd. is an alternative to standard 100-W mercury and halogen lamp houses traditionally used for fluorescence imaging.
A built-in shutter is able to close in 30 ms, allowing very brief exposure periods and minimizing the risks of photobleaching. Light is delivered through a 2- or 3-m liquid light guide to eliminate heat transfer to the microscope, minimizing thermal drift and aiding in the image stability of long-term experiments.
The device's spectral emission covers most commonly used fluorophores and their corresponding filter sets.
