The PhotoFluor LM-75 is the only direct-mount metal halide light source for fluorescence microscopy. With no liquid light guide and a built-in DC-ballast, the LM-75 delivers the highest possible intensity at the sample and extremely stable output. Together with pre-aligned, user-exchangeable lamp and ultra-quiet operation, the PhotoFluor LM-75 is an ideal replacement for a traditional mercury lamp.

    LDI-WF Laser Diode Illuminator for Widefield Microscopy

    The LDI-WF is a powerful and inexpensive light engine designed specifically for widefield microscopy. This unit offers the same seven laser lines in the same power range as 89 North’s successful LDI, but delivers the light to your microscope via a 3mm Liquid Light guide. The LDI has built-in homogenization and our 555nm or 577nm laser diodes covers the ‘green gap’ common in other solid-state light engines.
