UHP-Mic-LED-470 Ultra High Power LED Light Source
 for Fluorescence Microscopy


The Ultra High Power LED 470 nm provides excellent replacement of conventional arc lamp sources in fluorescence microscopy applications like FITC, GFP and Rhodamine stain. Many power demanding applications such as chemical reaction activation, machine vision, and numerous others may benefit of this new LED light source.

The UHP-Mic-LED-470 provides >4W of collimated d LED power on its output. The LED driver supports CW or pulsed operation

 Optional Accessories

For full details on optional accessories please see:


 Beam Combiner [2]

Multiple LED beams can be combined into one output beam. For example UV LED can be combined with White LED to create Mercury lamp like configuration. For more details please Please see video clip for more details.

 Filter Wheel [7]:

The UHP-Mic-LED can equipped with a 6 positions filter wheel at the beam output. This accessory is especially useful for UHP-Mic-LED-White light source. Please see http://www.prizmatix.com/Optics/filter-wheel.htm  for more details.

 Fiber Coupler Adaptor [3]:

The UHP-Mic-LED can be easily changed from direct microscope coupling to fiber coupled LED configuration by means of Fiber Coupler Adaptor (SMA, CF or ST connector). Please see video clip for more details.

 Liquid Light Guide Adaptor [9]:

The Microscope-LED can be easily changed from direct microscope coupling to Liquid Light Gide coupled LED configuration by means of LLGA adaptor. Please see video clip for more details.

 Fiber Optics Collimator [13]:

The output from optical fiber is divergent according to fiber NA. In order to reduce the divergence angle a collimator module can be used. Prizmatix collimator was especially designed to fit thick core high NA Polymer Optical Fibers. See more details at: http://www.prizmatix.com/Optics/collimator.htm

 Fiber Bundles [4]::

To combine outputs of multiple LEDs a Y-shaped fiber bundle with two or more input branches can be used. Prizmatix can help to configure and build custom fiber bundles for specific applications. See more details at: http://www.prizmatix.com/dev/Custom-Fiber-Optic-Assemblies.htm
