Lumencor SPECTRA X Light Engine

Integrated array of six powerful sold-state light sources





The SPECTRA X Light Engine provides six independently controllable light sources spanning the visible spectrum from 380–680 nm. Optionally, that range can be extended to 750 nm by substituting a near-infrared source for the teal (515 nm) source. Each SPECTRA X Light Engine comes equipped with a set of seven optical bandpass filters, providing the capacity to refine and tune the source outputs to meet evolving experimental requirements. The filters are user-exchangeable and are installed in removable paddles. The process of replacing one excitation filter with another in the SPECTRA X is as straightforward as it is in a filter wheel. On the other hand, the color switching speed delivered by the SPECTRA X (0.1 ms) is vastly superior to that of a filter wheel (50 ms). In live cell microscopy applications where milliseconds are critical, this can be a decisive advantage.
