AURA light engine®

Flexible light source configuration with performance that shines

Ideal OEM Illumination Platform for Biophotonics

The AURA light engine is an ideal platform for manufacturers seeking to integrate modern solid-state illumination into new bioanalytical instruments. Source configuration flexibility allows the spectral output of the light engine to be customized according to application-specific requirements. Furthermore, AURA provides temporal and spatial control over light delivery, meeting the demands of applications such as optogenetics and microfluidics. Notably, the AURA light engine can be configured with two Lumencor-proprietary luminescent light pipes to provide hundreds of milliwatts of green (520–560 nm) and yellow (560–590 nm) illumination with switching from one to the other in about 10 microseconds.
