CoolLED designs and manufactures cutting edge LED illumination systems for researchers and clinicians using the latest LED technology.
The company has specialised in fluorescence microscopy since it introduced the first commercially available LED illumination system in 2004. LEDs are now the system of choice because they are more stable, longer lasting, and energy efficient than traditional mercury based illuminators as well as offering superior safety and environmental features.
pE-300White : Regular fluorescence
- Broad spectrum
- Replaces mercury lamp
- TTL & USB Control
CoolLED’s pE-300white offers intense, broad-spectrum LED illumination for imaging most common fluorescent stains. The pE-300white Light Source can be fitted directly to the microscope or specified with a liquid light guide. The system is a mercury-free alternative that is safer, more controllable, and repeatable than conventional high-pressure gas discharge illuminators. Spectral coverage is from the UV (DAPI excitation) to the Red region (Cy5 excitation). The system is perfect for hospital and regular research laboratory environments.
pE-340Fura : Fura-2 ratiometric calcium imaging + regular fluorescence
- Dedicated 340nm & 380nm outputs
- Broad white output ( 435nm to 645nm )
- Micro-second switching ( 340/380)
Utilising the successful pE-300 Series platform, the pE-340fura is a bespoke LED Illuminator for Fura-2 ratiometric calcium imaging, which also supports everyday fluorescence microscopy in a compact and affordable package.
The 340nm and 380nm LED illumination system provides the optimum excitation wavelengths for Fura-2-based calcium imaging allowing high-precision, stable, high-throughput imaging with video-rate time resolution.
pE-4000 : Research fluorescence
- 16 selectable wavelengths
- White mode
- Advanced mode
- TTL & USB control
The pE-4000 sets the standard as the universal illumination system for fluorescence microscopy. The system has 16 selectable LED wavelengths that can be matched to the filters and fluorophores of almost any microscope, making it the broadest spectrum of illumination available.
For the user who wants consistency and ease of use with simple on/off and intensity buttons, the pE-4000 can be operated as a ‘White’ illumination system.
For the user who wants total control over the excitation source to improve imaging, individual wavelengths settings can be selected and controlled in “Advanced” mode.
pE-2 : Advanced fluorescence
- User configurable
- TTL & USB control
The pE-2 is a fluorescence LED illumination system which provides repeatable and controllable light with a choice of 20 different LED peaks. It is perfect for the researcher who has a specific set of tests to conduct. The user can specify a wavelength configuration matched to their particular fluorescence requirements. It is modular, allowing LED wavelengths to be exchanged as requirements vary or additional experiments are added. Manual control is via a remote control pod with instant on/off and intensity control from 0-100%. Additionally, the system is fully integrated under many imaging software packages.
pE-100 : Screening fluorescence
- Single LED wavelength
- Simple to operate
- TTL control
The pE-100 series is a mercury-free family of compact and simple to use LED illumination systems which can be configured to deliver light directly to a microscope, or via a liquid light guide or multimode fiber. Systems can be specified at any one of 20 different LED wavelengths.
Operation is by a remote manual control pod with instant on/off and intensity control from 0-100%. Remote control is available via a TTL trigger.
pE-100wht : Transmitted illumination
- Halogen replacement
- Excellent colour rendering
- TTL control
The pE-100wht is a powerful white LED illumination system designed to replace a 100W halogen lamp. Histologists and cytologists who are familiar with results from a conventional halogen lamp can immediately make accurate and reliable diagnosis using the pE-100wht as colours will appear the same. Unlike a Halogen lamp, the colour balance of the pE-100wht illumination system does not vary with intensity, removing the need to make any adjustment. The many additional benefits which LEDs offer – mercury-free, instant on/off, control and repeatability – mean that laboratories using halogen lamps will find that the move to the pE-100wht is obvious and simple.
