X-Cite mini+ Compact, LED Illumination System

The X-Cite mini+® is the new go-to white-light LED light source for fluorescence imaging applications. High-power performance, compact size and economically priced, the X-Cite mini+ is the perfect choice for routine fluorescence imaging. Designed with the latest in LED technology, the X-Cite mini+ provides higher power to the sample plane than any of our previous direct-coupled systems. Offering two models with a choice of UV wavelengths (365 nm or 385 nm), labs have the flexibility to choose the one that works with their preferred or existing DAPI filter sets.

The X-Cite mini+ comes with built-in controls and includes intuitive fingertip control with speedDIAL, hands-free operation with a foot pedal, and USB and TTL inputs for automated applications. X-Cite mini+ has a 20,000 hour warranty; no lamps to change, no mercury disposal fees and no light guides to replace. With energy-efficient LEDs and the advantage of instant ON/OFF to minimize power consumption, the X-Cite mini+ fits into any research lab’s “go-green” strategy.

Features and Benefits:

  • LED Technology: Efficiency, stability, instant ON/OFF, long lifetime, mercury-free
  • White Light Excitation: Excitation of commonly used fluorophores such as DAPI, CFP, GFP/FITC, YFP, mCherry/Texas Red, and Cy5
  • Direct Coupled: High power excitation
  • Multiple Control Options: Simple operation through USB, TTL or speedDIAL
  • Small Footprint: Minimal space requirement; less bench-top real estate used
  • Optimized Thermal Management: Maximum LED output, lifetime, stability and reliability
  • X-Cite Coupling Optics: Efficient optical output and uniformity with highest performing coupling optics
