White-Light Source Features Improved LED Technology

Excelitas Technologies introduces the X-Cite mini+ white light LED light source for fluorescence imaging applications as an enhanced version of the company’s X-Cite 120LEDmini. The X-Cite mini+ features improved LED technology to deliver more power to the sample plane than any of Excelitas’ previous direct-coupled systems. It is said to deliver enough power to replace mercury sources in budget-constrained labs and clinical facilities. 


X-Cite mini+ offers higher power in the 500 nm to 600 nm wavelength range for TRITC and mCherry. Other improvements and features include:

  • Broad spectrum LED output from 360 nm to 700 nm and a choice of 365 nm or 385 nm UV wavelengths. The XTML model features a 385nm LED, which matches the UV output of its predecessor, for a simple drop-in replacement solution. The XTMS model includes a powerful 365nm LED compatible with standard narrow DAPI filter sets, making it an ideal replacement for mercury sources.
  • Direct coupling to enable a maintenance-free system with no consumables.
  • Intuitive manual operation with speed DIAL, foot pedal, USB and TTL control options, compatible with standard X-Cite command set, for seamless integration and convenient control options for any instrument configuration, from basic to fully automated operation.
