Excelitas to Present at the I2SL Annual Conference


Excelitas Technologies®, a global technology leader delivering innovative, customized photonic solutions, will lead a presentation titled, “Filling in the ‘Green Gap’ LED Challenge for Microscopy and Medical Illumination: Providing Mercury-Free Sustainable Illumination,” at the I2SL (International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories) Annual Conference during Session F4 on Tuesday, October 22 from 2:00 – 3:30. Excelitas presenters include Dr. Kavita Aswani, Senior Applications Scientist for Life Sciences and Jennifer Melo, Business Development Manager for Life Sciences.


The conference session will detail recent LED technology advancements, which have created the opportunity for LEDs to replace arc lamps for a variety of fluorescence imaging in life sciences and microscopy applications. In addition to delivering enhanced image quality, and consumable cost savings, LEDs are mercury-free thus reducing toxic waste.

While LED technology is suitable for the majority of wavelengths used in common microscopy and medical applications, developing high power LEDs in the green excitation range has been challenging. The session will explain how LaserLED Hybrid Drive patented technology overcomes this challenge to offer a better and more sustainable illumination option. It will also present the advantages of using LEDs over arc lamps, including sustainability for microscopy systems in life sciences.
