22 Mar 2013

Prior Scientific, the leading manufacturer of microscope automation equipment have launched a new ultra compact spectrometer for microscopy applications. The LumaSpec 800 provides quantitative spectral data for virtually any microscopy light source. Using an illumination target in a 3” x 1” glass slide format, the LumaSpec 800 is able to check microscope illumination at the sample plane, where it matters most.

The LumaSpec 800 provides quantitative and graphical information from 350nm to 800nm with 1.5 nanometer resolution, providing a quick and easy tool for quantifying your illumination system. Furthermore, this system is ideal for confirming the performance of illumination systems with and without filters in place, measuring of transmission of filter sets and qualifying the consistency of illumination over time down to milliseconds to match exposure times and to assist with quantitative and/or ratiometric imaging.
