SCHOTT launches new VisiLED UV Ring Light for stereo microscopy
Switch between white light and UV illumination at the touch of a button

The new SCHOTT® VisiLED UV Ring Light for stereo microscopes combines classic bright-field illumination with UV illumination. It is the only segment ring light on the market in which white-light and UV-LEDs are alternately installed in eight segments. This LED arrangement allows objects to be examined from the same illumination angle, which significantly improves the ability to compare and reproduce resulting images. While the homogenous white light displays samples in natural color, UV excitation reveals previously invisible parts of the sample through fluorescence. The SCHOTT MC 1100 Controller (available for separate purchase) makes it easy to switch between the two illumination modes.
