Microscopy for the sustainable labLaboratories can consume up to 40% of the energy used on research-intensive university campuses, but it turns out there are many ways we can all reduce our carbon footprint at work. In the first issue of the new CoolLED interview series, Sustainable Labs Officer at the University of Bristol, Anna Lewis, explains how scientists can become more sustainable by considering whole life costs when purchasing new equipment.

In the case of illumination systems for fluorescence microscopy, modern LED Illumination Systems consume less energy than mercury and metal halide bulbs, avoid toxic mercury and also cut down on waste by having a significantly longer lifetime.

The CoolLED pE-300 Series is also ACT label certified which provides an easy way to measure and compare the environmental impact factor of a product — and Anna tells us how in some cases, ‘Green Grants’ are available to support the switch to such energy efficient equipment.
