PhotoFluor Light Source
Apr 2007
Chroma Technology Corp.Request Info
ROCKINGHAM, Vt., April 3, 2007 -- Optical filter maker Chroma Technology has introduced the PhotoFluor, a next-generation high output light source for fluorescence microscopy that combines a powerful metal halide lamp with a sputtered heat-blocking optic to deliver excellent light output across the spectrum from 340 nm to 650 nm.

Chroma.jpgWith emphasis on power in the ultraviolet (UV) range, the PhotoFluor allows bright imaging of DAPI, Hoechst and other UV-absorbing fluorochromes, as well as those with higher excitation wavelengths, including Cy5.

According to Chroma Technology, the PhotoFluor combines a powerful light engine that minimizes the need for alignment with quiet operation, and can increase the throughput of light-limited applications like spinning disk confocals. An innovative power management strategy ensures long lamp life (~2000 hours) with minimal decrease in lamp output over time and less fluctuation during experiments. The PhotoFluor's performance exceeds that of a 100 W mercury lamp, and comes with a five-position discrete neutral density wheel and an easy to use display and user interface.

The Photofluor can be adapted to all current laboratory microscope models. For more information, visit:; e-mail:
