The Beam Switcher accessory allows Prizmatix LEDs installed on the microscope to be used either for the microscope epi-fluorescence illumination or for illuminating a specimen via a fiberoptic probe.

The Beam switcher is especially useful for in vitro approaches such as optogenetics with patch-clamp recording in brain slices. The Beam switcher saves cost, space and allows maximum flexibility in experiment design.

Alternatively, the Beam Switcher is useful for assembling White LED and single color LED at fluorescence microscope.
