The pE-100wht is a powerful white LED illumination system designed to replace a 100W halogen lamp. Histologists and cytologists who are familiar with results from a conventional halogen lamp can immediately make accurate and reliable diagnosis using the pE-100wht as colours will appear the same. Unlike a Halogen lamp, the colour balance of the pE-100wht illumination system does not vary with intensity, removing the need to make any adjustment. The many additional benefits which LEDs offer – mercury-free, instant on/off, control and repeatability – mean that laboratories using halogen lamps will find that the move to the pE-100wht is obvious and simple.
The system uses a new LED technology which has a spectrum closely matching halogen. Previous LED technology offered illumination which was weak at longer wavelengths. This made the red element of images appear faint and caused colours to lose their clarity.
When adjusting the intensity of the pE-100wht, the balance between the colours remains constant so there is no need to make adjustments to the colour balance that is necessary when using halogen. In addition, the pE-100wht does not produce unwanted light in the UV which makes it a safer product for the user as risk of eye damage is significantly lower.
