The award-winning X-Cite NOVEM™ is our next generation of LED light sources delivering the brightest and most powerful LED Illuminator ever. This nine-wavelength, fast-switching system includes spectral coverage from Fura-2 all the way to IR800. Taking advantage of our patented LaserLED Hybrid Drive® to effortlessly fill the green gap in the challenging 500 – 600nm range, X-Cite NOVEM features high excitation power for fluorescence applications across the UV-visible-NIR spectrum.  With four configuration options and pre-installed clean-up filters, researchers can choose the combination best-suited to their existing and future imaging applications.


The X-Cite NOVEM has it all. With high power output, a wide spectral range, convenient design features, and whisper-quiet operation, this nine-channel LED illuminator does everything but compromise.   

With Nine individually controllable channels, the X-Cite NOVEM is bright enough to rival Mercury ARC lamps in microscopy applications.  Reduced sample exposure and scanning times will translate to improved image quality and productivity in most applications.  Each channel can be set to its own intensity, in 1% increments, providing full control and flexibility together with exceptional uniformity and stability.

Unique to the X-Cite NOVEM, its spectral coverage extends from UV to IR. Researchers can image Fura-2 using the 340/385nm LEDs for ratiometric calcium imaging, powerful excitation for Cy7, and for the first time, IR800 and other emerging far-red fluorophores.

Key Features:
  • Full spectral coverage from Fura-2 to IR800
  • Nine-channel wavelength selection
  • LaserLED Hybrid Drive with four-position motorized filter changer
  • Pre-installed clean-up filters
  • Control via speedDIAL, USB, TTL, analog
  • Whisper quiet operation

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.
