LDI Laser Diode Illuminator

• Configured for 7 wavelengths
• Up to 1W of power per channel
• Feedback controlled stability
• Integral laser despeckling

Product Description

Designed and manufactured by our US distributors 89 North, the LDI is a multiline, solid-state laser illuminator offering up to 1000mW of output power via a multimode fiber at the price of a low power LED light engine. With feedback controlled output stability and up to a 100:1 linear dynamic range, the LDI is the ideal light source for a wide range of applications including spinning disk confocal microscopy, structured illumination microscopy, FRAP, photoactivation/photoconversion, and TIRF microscopy, including PALM/STORM.
