technology. No compromise required./p>

  • Direct Coupling Without Vibration

    The innovative thermal management design of the X-Cite® 120LED
    allows direct coupling to the microscope for maximum power without
    adding mechanical vibration. Electronic shuttering provides
    sub-millisecond operation while avoiding the vibration and failure risk
    of mechanical shutters.

  • Electronic Shutter and Silent Thermal Management

    Fanless, high output LED head design and lack of shutter noise make
    for virtually silent operation, providing an optimal work environment
    for microscopists, while at the same time allowing for maximum precision
    in vibration-sensitive imaging experiments.

  • Multiple Control Options for Maximum Flexibility

    X-Cite® 120LED offers complete automation for multi-day time-lapse
    experiments and simple ergonomic manual control via speedDIAL. Take full
    advantage of LED instant ON/OFF capability to limit photobleaching and
    phototoxicity with ultra-fast PC control or TTL triggering. X-Cite® 120LED
    can be driven by commercial imaging software, and an SDK is available for
    developing customized control solutions.

  • Ergonomic Fingertip Control

    X-Cite® 120LED’s ergonomic speedDIAL can be
    placed where it is most comfortable for individual
    users. With a large speed-sensitive intensity dial
    that doubles as an ON/OFF button, controlling
    illumination is quick and intuitive. Always know
    the current intensity setting regardless of room
    lighting conditions via speedDIAL’s backlit display.
    Quickly jump to a favorite intensity setting with
    a double-tap on speedDIAL.

  • Ready When You Are!

    With instant-on capability, X-Cite® 120LED is ready to use within seconds,
    giving researchers the freedom to set the schedule. Whether fluorescence
    is required occasionally, daily or continuously, X-Cite® 120LED will be ready.
