Excelitas Technologies Releases New LED Illuminator for Microscopy

Excelitas Technologies Releases New LED Illuminator for Microscopy

Excelitas Technologies® Corp. today announced the availability of X-Cite® TURBO, a new multi-wavelength LED fluorescence illuminator for microscopy imaging and detection applications. Featuring Excelitas Technologies’ patent-pending LaserLED Hybrid DriveTM, X-Cite TURBO provides maximum excitation power for all standard color wavelengths, including the ever-popular yellow excitation band.

 As the latest offering in Excelitas’ suite of X-Cite solutions, the newX-Cite TURBO enables precise control by balancing illumination intensities between six popular wavelengths to protect samples from photodamage. OEMs and microscopists are able to define the exact bandwidth of light desired to reach the fluorophore for maximum excitation efficiency.  X-Cite TURBO enables individual or simultaneous excitation of all fluorophores ranging from DAPI to Cy5, or fluorescence proteins from CFP to mCherry making it suitable for conducting a variety of live or fixed-cell imaging and detection experiments.  
“Our new high-powered, fast-switching X-Cite TURBO is built on the superior performance of our current X-Cite light sources, combined with our innovative LaserLED Hybrid Drive to offer an extraordinary illumination solution,” stated Oliver Scheuss, Vice President of Solid State Lighting and UV/Microscopy at Excelitas Technologies. “With the flexibility to use up to six channels from the LaserLED Hybrid Drive with fine intensity control, researchers are able to excite all their flourophores with a single solution.”
X-Cite TURBO also features the valuable benefits of LED technology such as long-lifetimes, mercury-free operation, virtually zero maintenance and instant on/off capabilities. Additionally, the intensity of each of the six LEDs can be controlled independently through analog signals or PC control interface. For more information, please visit:www.excelitas.com.

See Through Raman Technology selected as R&D 100 Finalist

B&W Tek, a mobile spectroscopy solutions company that delivers lab quality Raman, LIBS and NIR solutions, has been proudly selected as a 2017 R&D 100 Finalist for the i-Raman® Pro ST Portable See Through Raman Analyzer.

 This is the second time B&W Tek has been recognized for such a distinguished honor following the win of the 2016 R&D 100 Awards in Analytical Equipment for our NanoLIBS®. This year’s award winners will be announced at the R&D 100 Awards Gala on Nov. 17, 2017, which will close out this year’s R&D 100 Conference held at the Walt Disney World Swan Resort in Orlando, FL.


For years now starting with the NanoRam, our Raman systems have helped to make sampling raw materials easier with their rapid, selective and nondestructive methods. This year, the i-Raman Pro ST made it as a finalist for its ability to collect Raman signals from materials inside opaque containers and packages. The see through feature minimizes the risk of exposure by keeping samples in the containers while also maintaining sample integrity. The large spot size also helps decrease the risk of photo damage to materials while increasing the sampling area to ensure proper identification. The i-Raman Pro ST is used in a variety of industries including package inspections, raw material identification, and bioscience analysis.


For more than half a century, the R&D 100 Awards have honored the most innovative companies in different industries involving science and technology. This award further validates B&W Tek as a leader in innovative spectroscopy solutions as we continue to make raw material analysis and identification easier, safer, and quicker for our customers.

Autofocus lens from Qioptiq

flo.x liquid lens objective from Qioptiq is a perfect lens to realize autofocus without moving mechanical parts.

The flo.x liquid lens objective combines the technical opportunities of the liquid lens with the traditional manufacturing for industrial lens applications. With this lens, it becomes possible to realize autofocus applications without moving mechanical parts. This high performance lens, with minimal dimensions, enables very compact lens-camera assemblies that can be integrated even in the most space constraint environments.
Direct driving of the liquid lens by means of electrical voltage results in electronic focusing that is much faster than mechanical control with motors and gears.
The lens shows very high optical performance of up to 100 lp/mm at the sensor side with an angle of view of 65°. Also a huge working distance range is realized and the lens focuses from 15 mm to infinity.

Why is TracePro the Technology Leader?

TracePro is the first Monte Carlo ray tracing software with an intuitive, easy-to-use interface much like a CAD program.

Daily users find their workday transformed from drudgery to productive, satisfying enjoyment. Casual users can pick up where they left off after months away from a project. Based on a solid modeling engine, TracePro’s precise CAD import/export and lens import save hours of work building accurate models for simulation of real-world parts. The 3D interactive optimizer helps to solve illumination problems in a fraction of the time of trial-and-error methods.
It is available in three levels: LC, Standard and Expert. The feature set in each edition is a subset of the features found in the next higher edition. Each edition is a full-featured program that can help you design superior systems.
