Upgrading Leica Microscope to Fluorescence Microscope


WIth LED technology development, and Zeiss launched the first LED fluorescence microscope Zeiss iLED, in primary clinical diagnostic line, more and more microscope users and manufactors pay attention to LED fluorescence. This year, Olympus launched its single blue excitation microscope CX43, which is a primary educational biological microscope with expand ability by a blue LED fluorescence attachment.
There is always competition among four big microscope brands Olympus, Nikon, Leica and Zeiss. Leica is expanding market share to primary application users, its entry level biological microscope DM500, DM750 and DM1000 are quite reliable optical performance, and flexibility to upgrade. On that background, adding a external LED fluorescence attachment is quite good solution to biology laboratories.
The LED fluorescence attachment is a seperate modual, set it between microscope head and body, a biological microscope is working for fluorescence and bright field both. Not like mercury fluorescence illumination, users have to consider preheat or cooling the machine. LED is cold light with low power required, which means open to use, environment friendly and much safer to operator. That improves laboratory working efficieny and fun.
Taking into most primary fluorescence experiement requirement, the LED fluorescence attachment can hold three filter cubes such as GFP/ FITC, DAPI, PI/TRITC.
Take Leica DM500 as an example, adding MSHOT brand LED fluorescence attachment MF-BGU-LED,  it becomes a LED fluorescence microscope with FITC, DAPI and TRITC filter cubes.
The MSHOT LED fluorescence attachment is designed, researched and manufacture by Chinese company Micro-shot Technology Limited.
