High-Performance Laser Diode Illuminators

The LDI is a multiline, solid-state laser illuminator offering up to 1000mW of output power via a multimode fiber at the price of a low power LED light engine. With feedback- controlled output stability and up to a 100:1 linear dynamic range, the LDI is the ideal light source for a wide range of applications including spinning disk confocal microscopy, structured illumination microscopy, FRAP, photoactivation/ photoconversion, and PALM/STORM.

APPLICATIONS

  • Spinning Disk Confocal Microscopy with Crest X-Light V2
  • Super Resolution SIM Imaging with Crest VCS or Live SR
  • PALM/STORM
  • Optogenetics with DLPs or Multiport Illuminator
  • Photoactivation/Photoconversion/FRAP with RAPP GEO
  • FRAP with SLM or Multiport Illuminator

 

     

    We now offer a full range of LDI products, including laser lines at 488, 577 and into the NIR
