TC-5600CL LED/Halogen Trinocular Microscope

The TC-5600CL is our latest Trinocular Inverted Epi-Fluorescence Biological LED Compound Microscope line is the cost-effective TC-5000 Series. The TC Series makes routine examining of tissue cultures, microbes and other live specimens in petri dishes and culture bottles fast and easy while delivering an excellent performance-to-cost ratio. The TC5000 Series Microscopes have an integrated front mounted camera port with adapters available for 35mm, CCD/CMOS and other cameras.

The TC-5600CL is equipped with PE-300L/LEDTC is a simple white light LED microscope illuminator. It provides a broad spectrum of illumination, covering the excitation bands of common fluorophores such as DAPI, CFP, Aqua, FITC, TRITC, TxRed, Cy5 and many more. Operation is by a remote manual control pod with instant on/off and intensity control from 0-100%. The newly enhanced PE-300L/LEDTC runs under 60 Watts at its full power. That is almost a quadruple efficiency increase, and compares to other LED technology which uses 120 to 350 Watts. This leap forward in technology makes LEDs more attractive when compared to old Mercury or Metal Halide technology, with no mercury to dispose of and lower energy costs due to low power consumption and the precise control offered.
