With over thirty years of practical experience in building light sources for the life sciences we now offer a wide range of solutions for fluorescence, transmitted light, OptoGenetics and other microscopy and macroscopy modalities. Most of our solutions are based on Cairn MultiPort adapters which allow independent optimisation of up to four independent sources in real time.

For complete flexibility we offer solutions based on LEDs, phosphors, arc lamps, and single and multimode lasers. These can be provided standalone, or integrated into turnkey solutions for widefield epifluorescence, TIRF, spinning disk confocal, light sheet, FRAP, Photolysis and OptoGenetics.
