EXFO’s LIFE SCIENCES AND INDUSTRIAL DIVISION LAUNCHES X-CITE® OPTICAL POWER MEASUREMENT SYSTEM FOR FLUORESCENCE MICROSCOPY APPLICATIONS
X-Cite® XR2100 and XP750: measuring illuminating power where it truly matters – at the objective plane.
QUEBEC CITY, CANADA, October 16, 2009 – EXFO Electro-Optical Engineering Inc.’s Life Sciences and Industrial Division (NASDAQ: EXFO, TSX: EXF) introduces its newest innovation, the X-Cite® XR2100 Power Meter and the XP750 Objective Plane Power Sensor for fluorescence microscopy applications. The new XR2100 and XP750 allow researchers to measure the optical power at the specimen level, enabling consistent and repeatable illumination throughout their experiments.
With its sleek low profile, designed specifically to fit on the microscope stage, the XP750 offers the versatility of measuring output from an X-Cite® illuminator or any other epi-fluorescence light source, including HBO/mercury, metal halide or xenon lamps, lasers and Light Emitting Diodes. The XP750 performs effectively with a wide range of applications and microscope configurations with power sensitivity at levels from 5μW to 500mW at wavelengths between 320nm and 750nm.
“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,” stated Michael W. Davidson, National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Florida State University. “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 plane.”
Featuring a control keypad interface, the XR2100 allows power measurements to easily be stored to the unit itself or downloaded directly into exportable data files via a computer. By offering a convenient way to manage settings and data from a desktop, researchers can maintain exportable data files together with imaging data to provide complete experiment records that facilitate compliance with Good Laboratory Practices.
“With the new X-Cite® XR2100 and XP750, researchers have access to an intuitive and powerful measurement system that enables them to achieve repeatability and efficiency throughout their research experiments,” said Allan Firhoj, Vice President and General Manager of EXFO’s Life Sciences and Industrial Division. “By combining innovation, functionality and ease of use in our products, EXFO continues to demonstrate its ingenuity and leadership in delivering advanced technology.”
