Lumencor SOLA Light Engine
The four SOLA Light Engine models are primarily distinguished by spectral output:
- SOLA Light Engine provides white light output for excitation of DAPI, GFP/FITC, YFP, Cy3, mCherry, Cy5 and spectrally similar fluorophores.
- SOLA FISH Light Engine, output in the 475–600 nm region is red-shifted to provide optimal excitation for SpectrumGreen™, SpectrumRed™ and other fluorophores commonly used for fluorescence in situ* hybridization (FISH) analysis in cytogenetic testing laboratories.
- SOLA V-nIR and U-nIR Light Engines offer the broadest spectral coverage, including near infrared (nIR) output for excitation of fluorophores such as Cy7 and ICG, and for other applications that benefit from the enhanced tissue penetration of nIR light.
