Widefield Fluorescence Microscopy

Widefield Fluorescence Microscopy is the least specialized and most common type of fluorescence microscopy. Mercury arc and metal halide light sources, ubiquitous in widefield fluorescence microscopy but are encumbered by erratic performance, have been largely replaced by high-performance, solid-state Light Engines that are mercury-free, clean, and green. White-light solid-state sources are direct replacements for mercury arc and metal halide lamps with superior stability, longer operating lifetimes, better reproducibility and lower operating costs. Color-selective Light Engines eliminate the need for mechanical filter switching in multicolor imaging protocols, enabling faster data acquisition.
