LDI-Prime Laser Diode Illuminator

The LDI-PRIME laser diode illuminator was designed specifically for those researchers whose work demands the 488nm laser.  As this is a premium laser line, we combined it with a collection of 3 other lasers to cover the visible spectrum as simply as possible to give you the power and the performance you need at a price that you can afford.  To keep it simple we also combined all the lasers into a single 400um fiber optic output.

The LDI-PRIME is a multiline, solid-state laser illuminator offering 4 laser lines across the visible with lots of power and a single fiber output. The unit offers feedback controlled output stability and up to a 100:1 linear dynamic range.  LDI-PRIME is the ideal lightsource for any one doing low light level GFP imaging.

See the technical product data sheet.
