IDEX Health & Science can source reliable diodes and LEDs matched for the fluorophores in your systems from 10’s of mW to 2-3 W laser power depending on the wavelength.
IDEX Health & Science can source low cost multimode diodes with reliable lifetime data to incorporate into our illumination systems.
At IDEX Health & Science, we design beam shaping optics to match the flow cell field of view (FOV) that is also matched to the sensor (CCD, CMOS, TDI) to get maximum photon efficiency and to use maximum FOV for diffraction limited imaging.
Our compact drop-in footprint is ideal for Field Replaceable Units. We can also combine Diodes and LEDs in a single illumination module.
Our illumination units can be direct coupled or coupled with a fiber depending on your instrument architecture. If the imaging is very sensitive to vibrations from cooling fans etc., fiber coupling is advised.
We can combine autofocus with our illumination modules for both direct or fiber coupled architectures.
We have expertise in building drivers for complex laser cycles and also thermal management, especially for the high-power Diode lasers and LED’s. We employ both air or water cooling options.
