X-Cite Fluorescence Illuminators for Microscopy & Analytical Instrumentation

X-Cite® Fluorescence Illuminators for Microscopy & Analytical Instrumentation



X-Cite 120Q

The X-Cite 120Q excitation light source uses a 120-watt lamp to deliver rich spectral excitation energy and uniform wide-field fluorescence microscope illumination to the sample plane.


X-Cite 120PC Q

The X-Cite 120PC Q offers the same performance and convenience as the X-Cite 120Q fluorescence illumination system with added PC control.


X-Cite 200DC

The X-Cite 200DC fluorescence microscopy illumination system offers the ultimate combination of optical performance, short term stability and a built-in fast shutter.


X-Cite exacte

The X-Cite exacte ultra stable fluorescence light source employs a DC-powered mercury lamp coupled with proprietary Closed-Loop Feedback technology to provide unmatched short and long-term intensity stability, for imaging protocols lasting from milliseconds to days.


X-Cite XLED1

The X-Cite XLED1 is a high power LED microscope light source with unmatched LED switching speeds, designed to optimize fluorophore excitation


X-Cite 110LED

The X-Cite 110LED is a compact, white light LED light source for fluorescence imaging applications. Providing excitation for DAPI, GFP, mCherry and Cy5 routine imaging, the X-Cite 110LED offers exceptional field uniformity through liquid light guide delivery.


X-Cite 120LEDBoost

The NEW X-Cite 120LEDBoost is more powerful than ever and efficiently excites a greater range of fluorophores than the original X-Cite 120LED. Direct coupling fluorescence microscope illumination, with no compromise.


X-Cite 120LEDmini

The X-Cite 120LEDmini is a compact and simple to use white-light LED light source for fluorescence imaging applications.



The NEW X-Cite TURBO has LaserLED Hybrid Drive providing six excitation wavelengths to excite all your fluorophores with unmatched control options.
