X-Cite Turbo Multi-wavelength LED Illumination System

The X-Cite TURBO® is a powerful, six-wavelength LaserLED Hybrid source for fluorescence excitation applications. Providing maximum excitation for up to six fluorophores using our patented LaserLED Hybrid Drive®, X-Cite TURBO offers a highly versatile solution for routine to advanced imaging applications. With manual, PC, TTL and analog control, as well as compatibility with existing imaging software drivers, X-Cite TURBO includes convenient control options for any instrument configuration. With six high-power wavelengths, researchers have the flexibility to add additional fluorophores for live or fixed cell imaging to their imaging arsenal.

Multi-Wavelength LED Illumination

X-Cite TURBO enables individual or simultaneous excitation of fluorophores ranging from DAPI to Cy5. With the ability to use up to six high-powered LEDs with fine excitation control, users are able to balance illumination intensity individually between channels while protecting samples against photodamage. In fixed cell imaging, users can excite the common dyes used including DAPI, FITC, Cy3 and Cy5. For those imaging live cells or animals, TURBO can excite CFP, GFP, YFP, mCherry or mStrawberry, all by simply switching the available six LEDs with a single push of a button.

Wavelength Specificity & Fast Switching

X-Cite TURBO allows filtering of excitation light before it enters the light guide enabling the user to define the exact bandwidth of light desired to reach the fluorophore for maximum excitation efficiency. This capability also enables fast switching of excitation light for high throughput or live cell imaging without having to rely on the speed of a filter wheel.

Exceptional Uniformity & Illumination Stability

Using a liquid light guide as the form of light delivery along with our optimized microscope adapters and efficient thermal management, this light source provides uniform and stable excitation to all regions of your sample.
