Samples will appear identical under the pE-100-WHT but intensities can be up to five times greater. Laboratories familiar with halogen lamps will find that CoolLED’s white gives results which make the move to LEDs simple and obvious due to the many additional benefits which LEDs offer. Histologists and cytologists who are familiar with results from a conventional halogen lamp can immediately make accurate and reliable diagnosis using the pE-100-WHT.

Previous LED technology offered illumination which was weak at longer wavelengths. This made the red element of images appear faint and caused colours to lose their clarity. The new pE-100-WHT provides colour balancing which remains constant across the full intensity range. In addition, the pE-100 does not produce unwanted light in the UV which makes it a safer product for the user as risk to damage to eyes is significantly lower.




As an LED product, power consumption can be up to 80% lower making the environmental impact of the pE-100-WHT much less than a conventional halogen lamp.

The pE-100-WHT LED Illumination offers the following benefits –

  • Spectral performance matched to 100W Halogen
  • No variation in colour across intensity range
  • Instant On/Off
  • Control
  • Stability
  • Repeatability
  • Replaces 100W Halogen lamp housing on most current and older microscopes
  • Lifetime will exceed 50,000 hours of on-time
  • No need to replace or align bulbs.

Each unit comprises an LED head with specified fitting to your microscope, a control pod which accepts a BNC input for TTL trigger, and a universal power supply.

With a comprehensive range of microscope adaptors, the pE-300-White can be fitted to most current and older microscopes. The result is a safe, convenient light-source which will last for many years without any additional operating costs



Advantages of the pE-300-White

  • Broad spectrum, high power white illumination
  • Simple to fit, simple to use
  • Instant On/Off
  • Excellent Field of View
  • No bulb replacement or aligning
  • Long lifetime (25,000 operating hours)
  • Reduced power of consumption for energy saving
  • No shutters or ND filters required
  • Filter set compatibility, including DAPI
  • Stable and repeatable
  • Quiet operation
  • Fits all new and most older microscopes
  • TTL triggering
  • No mercury
  • Simply Better Control

    The manual Control Pod offers instant on/off operation for White illumination with 0-100% intensity control in 1% steps.

    The pE-300-White is ideal for use with multi-band filter sets providing simplicity of operation with fewer filter cubes - potentially removing the need for single band filter sets altogether. It allows you to control the brightness of each fluorophore independently, in a multi-stained sample. Fluorophores can be viewed in isolation or in combination without filter cube changes.


    Liquid Light-Guide Option

    The pE-300 can be supplied with a liquid light-guide when there is a need to keep the source of illumination remote from the microscope. An optional collimating adaptor is available if required. As a replacement to a metal-halide source on a confocal microscope, it can be used for pre-aligning samples before scanning commences. This is particularly attractive as photo-bleaching of the sample can be minimised when LED illumination is used

The pE-4000 sets the standard as the universal light source for fluorescence microscopy. Users can operate the system as a simple white light source (replacing a conventional mercury-based light source), or as an advanced, fully-controllable, excitation and stimulation source. The flexibility and extensive functionality of the pE-4000 broadens the range of illumination options in core facilities.

At the centre of the pE-4000 is CoolLED's novel, patent pending, wavelength-grouping concept which offers more power in an efficient system design. Wavelength-grouping ensures optimal compatibility with all single and multi-band filter sets.

WHITE FOR SIMPLICITY

  • Simple on/off
  • Precise intensity control
  • Easy to use, no training required
  • Pre-sets allowing lab manager to match white spectrum to exiting filter cubes
  • Higher contrast images from matched-white spectrum



    ADVANCED FOR CONTROL

    • Individual LED wavelength selection
    • Rapid switching between LED wavelengths enables capture of high speed events
    • TTL & USB interfaces with imaging packages

Overview

NEW GENERATION LEDs

CoolLED's pE-300ultra offers intense, broad-spectrum LED illumination for imaging most common fluorescent stains. Users have access to both microsecond switching via multiple TTL inputs and the ability to mount inline excitation filters. This, when paired with today’s high performance multi band filter sets, facilitates imaging traditionally done via a white light source and a filter wheel, with all the benefits of LED.

The pE-300ultra is the most controllable member of the pE-300 Series. In addition to the many features of the pE-300lite and the pE-300white, the system offers precise control over wavelength intensity and shuttering. Until now these benefits have only been accessible to users of high end, highly flexible illuminators such as the CoolLED pE-4000.

A broad spectrum of illumination is provided, covering the excitation bands of common fluorescent stains.

Triggering from multiple TTL inputs, coupled with the ability to mount inline excitation filters, provides microsecond switching of pre-filtered excitation light. This, when paired with today’s high performance multi-band filter sets, facilitates imaging traditionally done using a white light source and a filter wheel, with all the benefits of LED, and most excitingly at speeds not previously so affordable.

The system comprises a pE-300ultra Light Source, Control Pod, set of three Excitation Filter Holders and Power Supply. It can be specified with a microscope adaptor for direct fit configuration or with a 3mm diameter liquid light guide if there is a need to keep the source of illumination remote from the microscope. An optional pE-Universal Collimator and microscope adaptor can be selected for use with a liquid light guide.

A benefit of the pE-300ultra is that stains can be viewed either individually or in combination, without filter cube changes. This makes it ideal for use with multi-band filter sets as the screening process can be simplified when fewer filter cubes are used. Independent control of the three LED channels means that the user can control the level of excitation of each fluorescent stain independently on a multi-stained sample, potentially removing the need for single band filter sets altogether. For further information on improved multi-stain testing, go to the Downloads tab.

An important additional feature of the pE-300ultra is that it includes CoolLED’s “Sequence Runner” multiple channel excitation mode. Users can define the order of their fluorophore capture using their pE-300ultra Control Pod, then the pE-300ultra light source can accept a single TTL output from the experiment set-up’s camera to initiate the step-through of a sequence of excitation channels. This feature is independent of the individual channel TTL inputs on the light source. This offers users the facility to run through a sequence of excitation channels using a camera which has only a single TTL-out.

With an expected lifetime in excess of 25,000 on hours and a comprehensive range of microscope adaptors, the pE-300ultra can be fitted to most current and older microscopes and operate for many years without aligning or replacing bulbs. The result is a safe, convenient illumination system without any additional operating costs.
