LUYOR-3420 Stereo Microscope Fluorescence Adapter

LUYOR-3420 Stereo Microscope Fluorescence Adapter provides two types of excitation light sources and adapts just about any stereo microscope (dissecting microscope) for fluorescence with no modification to the microscope itself. The modular design allows you to easily switch between several different excitation/emission combinations to work with a variety of fluorescent proteins and other fluorophores. There are now six different excitation/emission combinations available.

What's Included

LUYOR-3420 Stereo Microscope Fluorescence Adapter system consists of

  1. Flexible gooseneck lamp base with power supply

  2. Two light heads with excitation light sources of your choice

  3. Ring adapter for microscope

  4. Barrier filter

  5. Filter shield

The light head, barrier filter, and filter shield are interchangeable so that you can easily switch between excitation/emission light+filter combinations.

The microscope mounting adapter fits up to 67mm to work with the majority of stereo microscopes. If you need other sizes, contact us for customization.

Green-Only Barrier Filter

The Green-Only (GO) Barrier Filter isolates the green part of the spectrum and is for use with the Royal Blue excitation source. While our other barrier filters are longpass filters this filter is a bandpass, transmitting from approximately 500 to 560nm. The longpass filter has served well for most users who need to visualize green fluorescent protein (GFP), and if you are exploring fluorescence in nature it is preferable. The primary motivation for adding the green-only filter to the line-up is for the benefit of researchers using GFP in plants such as Arabidopsis thaliana, a common research model. Plants contain chlorophyll, which has a distinctive red fluorescence that can sometimes mask the GFP emission, making it harder to see and photograph.
