arrow12NIGHTSEA™ Fluorescence Adapter for Dino-Lite Digital Microscopes

The NIGHTSEA Model SFA Stereo Microscope Fluorescence Adapter can be used with the Dino-Lite series of digital microscopes.

While Dino-Lite does offer models with fluorescence built in, in some cases you can achieve improved performance by using the SFA excitation light sources in combination with matching barrier filters pre-mounted in a Dino-Lite endcap so that they just snap onto the front of the microscope.

Since there is no provision for mounting a filter shield on the Dino-Lite, the SFA system for Dino-Lite will include a pair of barrier filter glasses for each wavelength purchased.

The images below are a sampling of those made with the Dino-Lite/NIGHTSEA combination.

Wavelength sets

Wavelength sets are named and color coded for the color of the excitation light, not the color of the emitted fluorescence.

With the Royal Blue (RB) excitation we offer two barrier filters – longpass and bandpass. Read our Technical Data Sheet above on selecting the right passband option for your application.

 

The video to the right shows how the NIGHTSEA system works with the Dino-Lite Edge Series Digital Microscopes.

arrow12Dino-Lite Edge Series Digital Microscopes

The NIGHTSEA system works best with long working distance Dino-Lite Edge models. Higher magnification units have very short working distances, making it difficult to direct the NIGHTSEA light source onto the subject. Below are four compatible white light models.

Dino-Lite Edge AM7915MZTLarrow12Dino-Lite Edge AM7915MZTL

The Dino-Lite 5 MP Edge, with a magnification range of 10x - 140x and a longer working distance, delivers high-resolution imaging. This model combines popular image processing features Extended Depth of Field (EDOF), Extended Dynamic Range (EDR), and Automatic Magnification Reading (AMR).

EDOF is an easy-to-use focus stacking feature that captures several images at different focal points and then stacks them automatically into one clear image.

For high contrast or reflective surfaces, EDR will show the details of dark or bright areas, by stacking images taken at different exposure levels.

The NIGHTSEA system can add performance to some of the Dino-Lite fluorescence models. It can become difficult for the built-in LEDs to provide sufficient excitation on the subject at longer working distances. The NIGHTSEA source is more powerful and can be placed close to the subject.

Five compatible fluorescence models are listed below.

Dino-Lite Edge AM4115T-GFBWarrow12Dino-Lite Edge AM4115T-GFBW

Optimized for research and viewing, including fluorescent objects, using blue LEDs for excitation, the Dino-Lite Edge digital microscope has a 510nm emission filter to observe green fluorescence including green fluorescent protein.

It features the updated 1.3 megapixel Edge Series sensor that allows you to capture or record at 1.3 megapixels and, depending on the working distance, will magnify up to 220x.

Green fluorescent objects pop out under this handheld microscope with the green glow clearly visible. If you prefer to observe without this feature, you can switch the light source from the excitation lights to white light, letting you conveniently locate and focus on the object. For capturing green fluorescent objects, simply switch back to the main lighting.
