About This Webinar

Fluorescence imaging in life sciences and microscopy applications has traditionally used mercury, metal halide, and xenon arc lamps for illumination. With advances in technology, LEDs are now able to replace arc lamps. In addition to delivering enhanced image quality and cost savings, LEDs are mercury-free, thus reducing toxic waste.

This webinar will present the recent advancements in LED technology that have created an opportunity for LEDs to replace arc lamps for a variety of fluorescence imaging applications. Presenter Kavita Aswani, Ph.D., will address the development of high-power LEDs for the green excitation range, a wavelength that has traditionally been challenging for LEDs. She will also discuss the many advantages of using LEDs for microscopy systems in life sciences, including sustainability.
