Fluorescence Light Source Line-up is Now Complete
Apr 01 2006 Read 1805 Times
Olympus has introduced the new EXFO X-Cite 120 PC automated fluorescent light source. This adjustment free metal-halide illuminator is fully controllable through Olympus cell* imaging software. The addition of this new automated illuminator means that Olympus offers a full range of illumination options for its extensive fluorescence microscopy range. This enhances Olympus' status as a complete system solution provider for all fluorescence experiments.
Like the recently launched manually controlled EXFO X-Cite 120 illuminator, the PC version also offers low running costs with extended lifetime and ease of use. Although they have a light spectrum similar to that of conventional mercury lamps, the 120W metal-halide X-Cite 120 and X-Cite 120 PC both last far longer. The 1500 hour bulb life makes changes a rare occurrence.
Through software control, using the X-Cite 120 PC is exceptionally easy. All functions are fully automated, including shutter and light intensity modulation, and readily integrated into the experimental workflow. Furthermore, the convenient user interface of the Olympus cell* software enables simple integration of these automated functions into fluorescence acquisition protocols. This system integration approach simplifies workflows for all types of fluorescence experiments enabling researchers to focus on generating and analysing data.
