X-Cite NOVEM Powerful, 9-Channel LED Illumination System

The award-winning X-Cite NOVEMTM is our next generation of LED light sources delivering the brightest and most powerful LED Illuminator ever. This nine-wavelength, fast-switching system includes spectral coverage from Fura-2 all the way to IR800. Taking advantage of our patented LaserLED Hybrid Drive® to effortlessly fill the green gap in the challenging 500 – 600nm range, X-Cite NOVEM features high excitation power for fluorescence applications across the UV-visible-NIR spectrum.  With four configuration options and pre-installed clean-up filters, researchers can choose the combination best-suited to their existing and future imaging applications.

MORE POWER. MORE WAVELENGTHS. MORE X-CITE.

X-Cite Novem Spectrum chartThe X-Cite NOVEM has it all. With high power output, a wide spectral range, convenient design features, and whisper-quiet operation, this nine-channel LED illuminator does everything but compromise.   

With nine individually controllable channels, the X-Cite NOVEM is bright enough to rival arc lamps in microscopy applications.  Reduced sample exposure and scanning times will translate to improved image quality and productivity in most applications.  Each channel can be set to its own intensity, in 1% increments, providing full control and flexibility together with exceptional uniformity and stability.

Unique to the X-Cite NOVEM, its spectral coverage extends from UV to IR. Researchers can image Fura-2 using the 340/385nm LEDs for ratiometric calcium imaging, powerful excitation for Cy7, and for the first time, IR800 and other emerging far-red fluorophores.

Key Features:

  • Full spectral coverage from Fura-2 to IR800
  • Nine-channel wavelength selection
  • LaserLED Hybrid Drive with four-position motorized filter changer
  • Pre-installed clean-up filters
  • Control via speedDIAL, USB, TTL, analog
  • Whisper quiet operation

X-Cite NOVEM provides researchers with new fluorophore imaging options never before available. Available in four standard configurations, the X-Cite NOVEM tailors to the needs of specific applications to reduce complexity while optimizing cost versus performance. 

X-Cite NOVEM Model Selector Chart

“The X-Cite NOVEM allows us to utilize the ratiometric advantages of FURA-2 (quantitation and ability to correct for bleaching) but with the speed and economy of use of single color ratiometric probes.” 
Callen T. Wallace, Center for Biologic Imaging, University of Pittsburgh

“I am very pleased with the performance of the X-Cite NOVEM 9-channel LED illumination system. I am using it for fast wavelength switching between 340 nm and 380 nm for Fura-2 ratiometric imaging. It is a well-engineered instrument with a compact footprint so it easily fits into my workspace. Standard 25 mm diameter cleanup filters are easily inserted into the light path for precise control of the output wavelengths. It is easy to regulate the percent power to the LEDs to control the intensity of the excitation light and the device is compatible with MetaFluor real-time imaging software. Since it covers all wavelengths, I only need one illuminator for all my imaging needs from UV to far red.  The technical support from Excelitas is top notch.“
