Lumencor offers the microscopist the spectral content of an arc lamp and the bandpass selection functionality of a filter wheel in its most powerful and comprehensive light engine design. The SPECTRA X light engine® affords the end user the ability to exchange single bandpass filters within the light engine and to therefore tailor the output to application-specific requirements.
Lumencor offers a bright, solid state white light source as an alternative to traditional mercury-containing arc lamps: the SOLA light engine®. SOLAs provide manual (SOLA SM) or electronic (SOLA SE) control options as well as a choice of 365 nm (ultraviolet) or 395 nm (violet) light sources.
The best new light in fluorescence illumination
Lumencor’s light engines employ solid state technologies to provide:
Lumencor is committed to building innovative, high-quality light engines that facilitate rapid, sensitive, accurate analysis. Our areas of expertise reside in analytical chemistry, materials science, solid-state physics, optics and engineering. We offer lighting solutions to support the demands of researchers and manufacturers alike. In doing so, Lumencor is helping to advance this century’s best and most innovative analytical tools and diagnostic devices.
Lumencor is leading the life sciences with light engines for bioanalysis. Novel optical excitation subsystems are designed for an array of instruments including ﬂuorescence microscopes. The company has developed innovative, powerful, pure, stable, durable and cost-effective lighting solutions. Discrete outputs are available through the UV-Vis-NIR spectrum from a proprietary mix of independently controllable sources. Lumencor’s products provide more power than an arc lamp with the durability, stability, speed and ﬂexibility of a solid-state solution.
Lumencor products are available in OEM and off-the-shelf configurations. Lumencor’s Beaverton, Oregon facility is the hub of all light engine design and fabrication. We offer comprehensive design services with respect to the optical, mechanical, heat management, electronic and software integration aspects of our cutting-edge lighting subsystems. We service small and large organizations alike. Custom prototypes are produced in as little as 30-90 days. This fast turnaround is critical to our customers, for whom time-to-market is a key qualiﬁer of good service.
