New York Microscope Company is pleased to offer Lumin (TM) fluorescence accessories from LW Scientific. Lumin (TM) is one of the most cost effective methods of turning most brightfield microscopes into an Epi fluorescence Microscope. LW Scientific designed and manufactured the Lumin™ for easy, portable field use even in rural and remote locations globally.
By the use of special Light Emitting Diode (LED) illuminators and a unique filter design, choice of objective magnification, the Lumin™ operates with as little as 5 volts of power. The Lumin™ Kit and Epi-Fluorescence Module are proudly made in the USA.
The Light Emitting Diode (LED) illuminator emits intense blue light that passes through a transmission filter to the objective lens causing light to be absorbed by the specimen and re-emitted as fluorescence. The specimen’s emitted fluorescence passes through a specific wavelength emission filter and can be easily seen by the lab worker. Any tuberculosis bacilli present glow brightly and can be identified quickly thus speed-ing smear examination. In contrast to the traditional epi-fluorescence microscope, the Lumin™ is portable, much less expensive, has a very long life (50,000 hours of safe light – No harmful UV emissions ) 50,000 hour use bulb and does not require a dark room.
For more information on the goals that can help to identify 5 million or more additional tuberculosis patients and enable health services and laboratory personnel in clinics and hospitals to save their lives please view the Lumin story.
