Prior Scientific Inc. has introduced the Brightfield LED illuminator, which provides the advantages of LED illumination in a flexible package that can be fitted to most modern upright and inverted microscope systems. With 10,000 plus hours of operating lifetime, the LED replaces the standard lamphouse and is easily fitted to the microscope. Control of the unit is a choice of manual intensity control, TTL control, or On/Off, eliminating the need for shutter mechanisms. The intensity can be regulated manually via a small controller, to give precise control of the illumination. The intensity is sufficient even for contrast techniques such as phase contrast of DIC imaging. Illumination is even across the field of view and a constant color temperature is assured at all intensities. The LED can be powered directly from the Prior ProScan cable. Adapters are available for most microscopes.
