Lumencor LIDA Light Engine

Solid state illumination for colour light microscopy




LIDA light engine is designed to work hand-in-hand with the latest monochrome cameras to generate RGB color transmitted light images with unprecedented sensitivity, spatial resolution, speed and color fidelity. LIDA integrates three solid state sources, including Lumencor’s patented green luminescent light pipe, with the sophisticated control electronics required for high speed synchronisation of light output with camera exposure. Transmitted light images are captured in one electronically controlled high-speed sequence.



  • Sources 3 solid-state sources: Red (610nm - 650nm), Green (510-600nm), Blue (420nm-480nm)
  • Light Delivery Direct mount to transmitted light port of major brand microscopes
  • Operational Modes RGB sequential (camera triggered); white light for ocular viewing
  • Speed Maximum 1kHz RGB channel switching or all channels (white) on/off
  • Control Ports (1) Rear panel USB port  (2) Read panel DB15 TTL gating port
  • Functional Controls USB: Direct control or channel on/off and output intensity
         TTL: Single-line sequential R>G>B switching or 3-line independent gating of R, G and B sources

Variances associated with moving parts are eliminated, resulting in perfect alignment of pixel-registered images across the wide fields of view afforded by modern sCMOS cameras. Independent control of the intensity of the three component light sources allows balanced color rendition without resorting to extensive post-processing of images.


Lumencor is excited to enable this synergistic combination of new illumination and camera technologies for histologists, clinical pathologists, and anyone seeking improvements in the speed, sensitivity and precision of colour transmitted light microscopy.
