Advanced LED light source for fluorescence excitation
The X-Cite® XLED1 is a high-power LED light source designed to optimize fluorophore excitation with unmatched LED switching speeds. Its unique
plug-and-play modularity allows the system to evolve alongside changing research applications, with easily interchangeable LED modules. With unprecedented wavelength
switching speeds to capture fast cell dynamics and advanced triggering options including X-Cite Live Cell Mode®
to extend live-cell imaging experiments, the X-Cite XLED1 represents the industry's next generation of fluorescence LED illumination.
Award-winning on the basis of importance and usefulness to the microscopy community, the X-Cite XLED1 Internal Pulse Generator provides researchers with precise
time control and pulsing of each LED for advanced biological imaging applications.
"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."

|Maximum power and individual LED control
||Use up to four high power LED modules with fine excitation control while balancing illumination intensity between channels and protecting specimens against photodamage.
|Unmatched field uniformity at the specimen
||X-Cite microscope adaptors lead the industry in field uniformity without the need for alignment, while saving time on maintenance and ensuring peace-of-mind in experimental results.
|Adaptable plug-and-play modularity
||Each LED module and associated optical components can be quickly swapped in the field for another wavelength depending on the needs of your application.
|Rapid wavelength switching to capture fast cell dynamics
||Each LED module is designed to integrate and easily interchange individual excitation filters, allowing accelerated wavelength switching beyond the scope of motorized filter wheels.
|Flexible triggering for sequential or simultaneous imaging
||Triggering sequences can be combined with a high degree of control over individual LED intensity to excite and image multiple fluorophores when examining very fast moving specimens or for live-cell ratio imaging.
|X-Cite Live Cell Mode to limit photobleaching and cellular damage
||Researchers can extend the time frame of their live-cell imaging experiments by reducing the degree of free radical formation caused by the continuous illumination of fluorescent proteins.
