UHP-Mic-LED-595 - Ultra High Power LED Light Source
for Fluorescence Microscopy


    The ULtra High Power (22Watt) LED 595 nm provides excellent replacement of conventional lamp sources in fluorescence microscopy. Many applications such as activation of light-driven ion pump like Halorhodopsin (NpHR) in Optogenetics may benefit of this new LED light source.

  This new member of the modular Optiblocks family provides >650mW of collimated LED power on its output and can be used with a full range of other optical OptiBlocks such as Fiber Coupler, Liquid Light Guide coupler, Beam Combiner, Filter Wheel, Beam Switcher and others.
Please see full list of Optional Accessories

  The LED driner supports CW or fast TTL triggered operation

    In Optogenetics the 595 nm LED can be used for both in-situ and in-vivo activation of Halorhodopsin (NpHR). In in-situ experiments the LED can be connected to epifluorescence port of microscope, in in-vivo experiments the LED can be used with fiber coupler adaptor to enable opsin activation through fiber optic ferule.

    In fluorescence microscopy such fluorophores as Alexa Fluor 594, Texas Red, DyLight 594 and other yellow wavelength excitation markers can be used with this ultra-high power LED light source.

Optional Accessories


Filter Wheel:
The UHP-Mic-LED can be equipped with a 6 positions filter wheel at the beam output. This accessory is especially useful for UHP-Mic-LED-White light source. For more details please see video clip
  Fibre Coupled Adapator:
The UHP-Mic-LED can be easily changed from direct microscope coupling to fiber coupled LED configuration by means of Fiver Coupled Adaptor (SMA,CF or ST connector).This adaptor can be easily assembled by a user on the Mic-LED output. For more details please see video clip

Liquid Light Guide Adaptor:
The Microscope-LED can be easily changed from direct microscope coupling to Liquid Light Guide coupled LED configuration by means of LIGA Adaptor.This adaptor can be easily assembled by a user on the Mic-LED output. For more details please see video clip
The output from optical fiber is divergent according to fiber NA. In order to reduce the divergent angle a collimator module can be used. Prizmatix collimator was especially designed to fit thick core high NA Polymer Optical Fivers. For more details please see http:www.prizmatix-led.com/optics/collimator.htm
Fiber Bundles::
To combine output 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. For more details please see http:www.prizmatix-led.com/dev/Custom-Fiber-Optic-Assemblies.htm
