AvaLight-LED Light Sources for Fluorescence Applications
The Avalight-LED is a compact, low-cost light source meant for fluorescence applications. It produces continuous or pulsed spectral output at different wavelengths. Some standard excitation wavelengths are shown in the table on this page, but other wavelengths are available upon request. The sources have an SMA-905 connector to couple to fiber-optics. Please note that the power supply (PS-12V/1.0A) should be ordered separately.
The AvaLight-LED can be used as a DC source or pulsed with a programmable Pulse Width Modulation (PWM), supplied by an AvaSpec-USB2 spectrometer (IC-DB26-2 cable needed).
The CUV-DA is a cuvette cell holder that has an integrated LED for direct illumination of the cell. This provide greater excitation energy for fluorophores with low quantum efficiency.
Other accessories include the CUV-FL and CUV-ALL cuvette holders and the FCR-UV fluorescence probes. They can be found in the accessories and fiber-optics chapters of this website.
