Excelitas Technologies to Present and Showcase X-Cite Fluorescence Illuminators for Microscopy and Analytical Instrumentation at Digital Pathology USA


Excelitas Technologies® Corp., a global technology leader delivering innovative, customized photonic solutions, will highlight its latest X-Cite® fluorescence illuminators at Digital Pathology USA. Excelitas’ Applications Engineer Tara Maggiano will also present a session entitled, “Advances in LED Technology for Digital Pathology Applications,” during Track 1 on Thursday, June 13 at 3:45 p.m.


Featured Excelitas products include:


  • X-Cite Vitae™ 6: Based on a flexible LED module design with extensive wavelength multiplexing capabilities, this multi-wavelength platform with high output power and efficient thermal management is available for maximum spectral breadth and stability. Systems can be customized with up to six LEDs and excitation filters to cover a wide range of imaging, diagnostic and analytical applications. With a range of wavelengths from 360-740nm, X-Cite Vitae 6 offers high speed color switching, analog or digital control, and a footprint customized to your solution.
  • X-Cite mini+: An enhanced version of the X-Cite 120LEDmini, the X-Cite mini+ white light LED light source for fluorescence imaging applications features improved LED technology to deliver more power to the sample plane than any of Excelitas’ previous direct-coupled systems. It is the perfect choice for routine fluorescence imaging with enough power to replace mercury sources in budget-constrained labs and clinical facilities. X-Cite mini+ offers higher power in the 500nm-600nm wavelength range for TRITC and mCherry, enabling faster imaging time and better excitation for dim specimens.
  • X-Cite XYLIS: X-Cite XYLIS for fluorescence microscopy features Excelitas’ patented LaserLED Hybrid Drive® technology and offers a rich, broad spectrum output from 360nm-770nm for exciting an extended range of fluorophores. XYLIS’ enhanced LED coverage from one end of the light spectrum to the other closely matches the output of a mercury arc lamp while eliminating any need for bulb replacement.


Conference: June 13 – 14, 2019
Opportunities for New Applications with the Advancements in Technology of Short Wavelength UV LEDs Presentation: June 13, 3:45 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
