Agreement Connects LED and Cell Viability Systems  

Sep 10 2015

Microptic SL is to integrate Prior Scientific’s Lumen 100 LED illumination system with its Sperm Class Analyser (SCA) to determine the number of live and dead sperm cells within a sample using fluorescence microscopy. Suitable for human, veterinary and toxicological testing, Microptic’s SCA system employs DNA binding dyes that glow under appropriate fluorescent illumination allowing automatic counting of viable cells.A single high performance LED emitting in the ultraviolet range at 365nm was selected

Eduard Sánchez, Technical Manager of Barcelona-based Microptic said:  "In selecting an optimised illumination source for our SCA system, we were drawn to the Lumen 100-LED as it offered high performance illumination, instant activation, extremely long operational lifespan (typically 10,000 hours or above), and low levels of vibration and heat production which may affect sperm samples". 

"In addition to being competitively priced the Lumen 100-LED system can be controlled directly by a computer therefore it was easily integrated into our SCA software.  We also appreciated that the Lumen 100-LED can be fitted to a wide range of microscopes which increases the potential market for the SCA system.”
