Mightex BLS-series BioLED light sources are modularised fully-customisable turn-key solutions for optogenetics, fluorescence excitation, and other biophotonics applications. Precisely-timed and high-intensity light pulses are required in optogenetics experiments to activate channelrhodopsins (ChR2, ChR1 etc.) and halorhodopsins (NpHR) in order to excite and inhibit neurons. To meet these requirements, Mightex has developed a proprietary “IntelliPulsing” technology to allow BLS-series sources to output significantly higher power in pulse mode than what the LEDs are rated for in CW mode.
Mightex BLS-series precision LED spotlight employ the latest high-power LED technologies and a proprietary coupling optics to achieve the best beam uniformity. In conjunction with BioLED light source control modules, these LED sources can be used for a wide range of applications including optogenetics and other bio-photonics applications.
Multi-chip LED emitters (i.e. Type-B) have been added to the product portfolio. Some of these 7W to 15W LEDs have total optical power exceeding 500mW, doubling the power of a single-chip LED. Such Type-B models with higher powers (7W and higher) feature a cooling fan, and have a different form factor compared to Type-A models. Please examine the installation drawings carefully. Power supply for the cooling fan is included in the price of the Type-B precision LED spotlights.
