Prelude II Light Source

In Stock

The re-designed Prelude II light source, is an adjustable LED white light source for stereomicroscopes. The Prelude II is designed to provide extraordinary reflected light illumination for very difficult to illuminate samples. It generates soft, glare free lighting where all other illumination techniques have failed. Completely adjustable “curtains of light” perfectly illuminate highly reflective samples such as insects, semiconductor parts, jewelry, metals, rocks and plastics. This is the perfect light for entomology, metallography, jewelry inspection, geology, semiconductor or polymer inspection. Designed originally for Drosophila fly hair illumination, the Prelude II light source can also be used effectively with embryos in solution and other shiny biological or industrial samples. See your sample in a light no other company can match. Use the Prelude II light source with Extended Depth of Field (EDF) software for simply spectacular results. 20,000+ hour LED life. Patent pending.
