Lumencor SOLA light engines

Tuesday, 19 January, 2021 | Supplied by: SciTech Pty Ltd



Lumencor’s family of SOLA light engines provide modern solid-state illumination for microscopy and other life science applications. Now the company has further enhanced the SOLA light engine product line with the addition of active light output stabilisation, fully linear intensity control and electronic control interfaces on all models.

The four SOLA light engine models are primarily distinguished by spectral distribution differences in their light output. The light engine provides white light output for excitation of DAPI, GFP/FITC, YFP, Cy3, mCherry, Cy5 and spectrally similar fluorophores. Output in the 475–600 nm region is red-shifted to provide optimal excitation for SpectrumGreen, SpectrumRed and other fluorophores commonly used for fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) analysis in cytogenetic testing laboratories. The SOLA V-nIR and U-nIR light engines offer broad spectral coverage, including near infrared (nIR) output for excitation of fluorophores such as Cy7 and ICG, and for other applications that benefit from the enhanced tissue penetration of nIR light.

The light engines contain no parts requiring replacement or alignment, need no routine maintenance and have a typical working lifetime of 10 years, which should exceed that of any lamp. The light engines are mercury-free and RoHS compliant.
