MIRA light engine®
Stable, multicolor excitation for routine, clinical microscopy.
MIRA light engine is Lumencor’s high performance, bright, solid state illumination subsystem designed for routine, clinical fluorescence applications. MIRA houses multiple independent light sources and with no fan needed for cooling, it produces no vibrations. It directly couples to all major manufacturer’s clinical microscopes and is completely maintenance free. The MIRA light engine features discrete, spectrally stable and powerful outputs. Optical outputs are tuned to efficiently excite DAPI, FITC, TRITC, Cy5 and other like fluors. MIRA light engine integrates multiple solid state sources including Lumencor’s proprietary bright green and yellow light. The violet, cyan, green and red light is bright enough to excite all the clinically relevant fluorophors.
MIRA optical outputs are controlled with two manual knobs or an optional remote control accessory. Each color can be turned on/off independently or alternatively, used together to generate a single white light output. Additionally,each channel has independent optical power control. The light engine output may be optimized for the excitation of multiple fluorescent targets. A BNC for TTL trigger of white or any individual color output enables automated operation.
