Laser 2000 has introduced a new line of 'light engines' designed to replace traditional light sources in optical instrumentation, in particular for bioanalytical applications, manufactured by Lumencor.
Commercial light sources have significant performance limitations such as low power, spectral drift and short lifetimes that are only overcome with large investment. Lumencor has developed light sources able to provide high power, spectrally pure, stable, and inexpensive light across a broad spectrum, with up to six colour outputs. A variety of light source technologies are employed to optimise the output of each color. The devices may be modulated in intensity and wavelength with no external mechanical components making them a 'smart' light source. They are designed to directly replace the entire configuration of light management components with a single, simple unit.
