Light BYTES – December 2020: Introducing the newly updated family of SOLA light engines®

Updated SOLA light engines for 2021 and Beyond

You asked and we delivered! Lumencor is proud to introduce the newly updated family of SOLA light engines that will continue to set the standards for performance and reliability in white light illumination. This product line now includes 4 standard models that are differentiated by the number of sources and spectral output: SOLA, SOLA FISH, SOLA U-nIR and SOLA V-nIR light engines. The SOLA light engine provides white light output for excitation of DAPI, GFP/FITC, YFP, Cy3, mCherry, Cy5 and spectrally similar fluorophores. In the SOLA FISH light engine, output in the 475–600 nm region is red-shifted to provide optimal excitation for SpectrumGreenTM, SpectrumRedTM and other fluorophores commonly used for fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) analysis in cytogenetic testing laboratories. The SOLA V-nIR and U-nIR light engines offer the broadest 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.

All SOLA light engine models now include:

  • USB and electronic shutter control connections
  • Linearized intensity control
  • Active output stabilization
  • Long operational lifetimes
  • 24-month warranty

The 3 mm liquid light guide required for delivering the SOLA light engine output to microscopes or other bioanalytical instruments is now automatically included with all purchases. To request a sales quotation for any (or all) of the four new SOLA light engine models, please submit our online quote request form today!
