Choose from over 20 interchangeable light cubes

Our systems are uniquely suited to match the dynamic needs of your cell imaging workflow, with instruments
that are:

  • Modular—quickly customize the fluorescent colors with interchangeable light cubes
  • Compact—conserve valuable lab space with a small footprint and sleek design
  • Affordable—low cost of ownership and operation

All three platforms use revolutionary Invitrogen™ EVOS™ LED light cubes that are interchangeable, have plug-and-play capability, and can be easily transferred between instruments

Light cube technology

EVOS light cubes integrate LEDs and high-performance filters in a novel illumination system that is designed to deliver precise control and exceptional reliability with minimal maintenance.

These interchangeable LED cubes provide:

  • Shorter light paths for more efficient fluorescent detection
  • Longer bulb lifetime (>50,000 hours) for lower maintenance costs
  • Adjustable light intensity to minimize photobleaching
  • Continuous light intensity for more consistent results

The table below lists some of the most commonly used light cubes. There are more than 20 to choose from.
