3 Lambdas Illumination Units

Breakthrough technology inside

EDEN Instruments 3 Lambdas illumination LED series are designed to be a direct replacement of high pressure mercury lamp used for fluorescence ultramicrotomy cut-sections application. The 3 Lambdas unit combines 365, 470 and 530 nm wavelengths into the same housing.

With its flexible multi-mode output fiber and focuser/adapter, the 3 lambdas unit fits to most recent and older ultramicrotome/cryo generation with a working distance adjustable from 5 to 15 cm.
The result is a safe, highly reliable and user friendly light source designed to last for years without any additional operating costs.

The main application is fluorescence microtomy of embedded fluorophore specimens for optimized cutting area detection.

Key features

  • Flexible light guides and fibers output for any working distance and surface area inside the ultra/cryo ultramicrotomy equipment
