X-Cite XYLIS™ Broad Spectrum LED Illumination System
The X-Cite XYLIS™ from Excelitas is a white light LED illumination system for advanced fluorescence microscopy applications and rivals traditional arc lamps for brightness – making it ideal for both compound and stereomicroscopes.
Incorporating the award-winning LaserLED Hybrid Drive® technology to overcome the LED green gap, X-Cite XYLIS™ makes it possible to enjoy the benefits of LEDs without compromising on price, flexibility or performance.
In addition to its powerful output and broad DAPI to Cy7 spectral range, X-Cite XYLIS™ offers the ultimate in flexibility. Delivering light through a light guide alone or with a choice of more than a dozen microscope adapters, X-Cite XYLIS™ can be installed on just about any new imaging system or used to retrofit the microscopes labs have depended on for years.
Offering two models with a choice of UV wavelengths: 360-770nm or 380-770nm - laboratories may choose the one that works with their preferred or existing DAPI filter sets. Control options are built-in to every X-Cite XYLIS™ system including intuitive fingertip control with speedDIAL, hands-free operation with a foot pedal, and USB and TTL inputs for automated applications.
The X-Cite XYLIS™ provides an environmentally friendly replacement for lamp systems and has been tried and tested on demanding microscopy applications including Stereomicroscopy and FISH. The option to turn OFF the UV part of the spectrum will be welcomed by stereomicroscope users who want to preserve the viability of their samples.
