"We tested the X-Cite 110LED on our white-light Nipkow disk confocal system and found the images to be very
bright. Overall, the fluorescence was superior to our other light sources and the system was easy to operate."
Dr. Tim Bromage,
Director, Hard Tissue Research Unit, New York University
"The X-Cite 120LED is bright and stable and our users love it! It saves us time and energy by eliminating the need for
lamp changes and alignment that were required with our old HBO systems."
Dr. Dongsheng Wu,

"We achieved excellent results when performing time-lapse imaging
on live cells over 24 hours with the X-Cite
120LED. These results combined with a much longer lamp life time and
less maintenance compared to conventional lamps make the 120LED
particularly attractive in the context of running a microscope facility."

"The X-Cite 120LEDBoost
provides accurate FRET measurements and works well with all of our
fluorophores. We find it bright, uniform and easy to use."

"The X-Cite XLED1
platform is an extremely convenient system to use for excitation or
photolysis. Integration into our existing setup was incredibly easy and
the touch screen control panel provided a simple and precise method to
control the device and even save protocols for multiple experiments. A
great alternative for laser based systems."
Prof. Chris Yip
University of Toronto
"The XLED1 system integrated well with our existing
microscopes, setup was easy and the interface was very intuitive."
Advanced Optical Microscopy Facility, Toronto
"We found the new XLED1 light source to be extremely flexible
in a multi-user environment, providing powerful excitation for all of
our favourite fluorescent proteins."
Molecular Imaging Center, UC, Berkeley
"The X-Cite XLED1 was
everything I had been looking for, a light guide system that would not
generate extra heat close to my sample with a bright, stable, low noise
light source that is easy to maintain."
PhD, Department of Molecular Biology, UC Berkeley, USA
"With the help of the X-Cite
light source we have successfully captured high quality
epi-fluorescence time-lapse images of actomyosin structures in fission
yeast. These images have featured in a number of publications our lab
has contributed to the field over the past few years."
University of Vermont
"The X-Cite 120 has
been an invaluable tool in our FRET-based research. The easy
installation and long life enables us to concentrate on our experiments
instead of worrying about our light source."

"The XP750 is destined to become an important staple in the
toolbox of every investigator who is doing quantitative work that
demands absolute repeatability in terms of excitation output. This unit
is far superior to standard power meters because it fits perfectly into a
slide holder and positions the light sensor at the objective focal

"Much of our research depends on quantitative fluorescence microscopy analysis over long time periods. The X-Cite XP750's design makes it easy to routinely measure the exact amount of excitation light delivered to the specimen at any given time point."
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
"The X-Cite XP750 is very
easy to use and would be a valuable tool for any researcher wanting to measure
