The Lambda LS is designed to be used with a liquid light guide which transmits remarkably flat, intense, illumination to the optical train of the user’s microscope or other instrumentation. The cabinet of the Lambda LS accommodates a standard Sutter Instrument filter wheel with shutter that slides easily in and out of a slot in the light path. If desired, a second filterwheel can be mounted on the outside of the cabinet. When used with appropriate adapters, the light guide output is compatible with most common microscope systems. Unlike the arc lamps used with most fluorescence microscopes, the xenon bulb is pre-aligned using a parabolic mirror and does not require alignment. In the standard configuration, the Lambda LS bulb is capable of producing light output from 340nm to a cutoff of 700nm determined by the cold mirror. An optional enhanced UV bulb produces output much lower into the UV (cut off near 200nm). As with any UV generating light source, the optional bulb generates significant quantities of ozone and must be used in an adequately ventilated environment. The Lambda LS utilizes a compact design, which places power supply, lamp house, arc lamp and cold mirror in a single enclosure. This system eliminates a common failure associated with standard arc lamp designs: when using a remote power supply aging may lead to a decreased ability to light the lamp due to loss of the insulating characteristics of the lengthy high-tension line. As with all our equipment, the power supply has been designed to minimize electrical noise that can be picked up by physiological recording equipment.
