Instrument Lighting

Key Benefits

Light Emitting Plasma offers the following benefits over traditional sources for instrument lighting:

  • Long Life: Xenon lamps are no match for LEP's 10x longer lifetime in instrument and microscopy illumination. With plasma lighting, you can practically eliminate the expense and inconvenience of lamp replacement and machine re-calibration.
  • Spectrum: A full spectrum visible light source with 90+ CRI is the key to producing lifelike images and deep saturated colors.
  • Low Noise: LEP eliminates electrode flicker and increases signal to noise ratio for accurate digital processing and image capture.
