Excelitas X-Cite mini+ LED Light Source for Fluorescence Microscopy

The X-Cite mini+® is the new go-to white-light LED light source for fluorescence imaging applications. High-power performance, compact size and economically priced, the X-Cite mini+ is the perfect choice for routine fluorescence imaging. Designed with the latest in LED technology, the mini+ provides higher power to the sample plane than any of our previous direct-coupled systems. Offering two models with a choice of UV wavelengths (365nm or 385nm), labs have the flexibility to choose the one that works with their preferred or existing DAPI filter sets.

The X-Cite mini+ also comes with built-in controls and includes intuitive fingertip control with speedDIAL, hands-free operation with a foot pedal, and USB and TTL inputs for automated applications. X-Cite mini+ has a 20,000 hour warranty; no lamps to change, no mercury disposal fees and no light guides to replace. With energy-efficient LEDs and the advantage of instant ON/OFF to minimize power consumption, the X-Cite mini+ fits into any research lab’s “go-green” strategy.

Features & Benefits:

LED Technology: Efficiency, stability, instant ON/OFF, long lifetime, mercury-free
White Light Excitation: Excitation of commonly used fluorophores such as DAPI, CFP, GFP/FITC, YFP, mCherry/Texas Red, and Cy5
Direct Coupled: High power excitation
Multiple Control Options: Simple operation through USB, TTL or speedDIAL
Small Footprint: Minimal space requirement; less bench-top real estate used
Optimized Thermal Management: Maximum LED output, lifetime, stability and reliability
X-Cite Coupling Optics: Efficient optical output and uniformity with highest performing coupling optics

I really appreciate the level of personalized support Empire Optics offers. No matter what the issue is, we get help immediately.


We spoke with Nick and the Digital Microscope he suggested is working great. It is super easy to operate and checks all our boxes.


Working with Empire Optics to upgrade our Fluorescence microscope was a great experience. They were extremely attentive, and we are incredibly happy with the outcome.
