Advantages of BBO-Niji multichannel LED light source:- Full system with 7+1 LED channels, controllable independently or simultaneously
Light Output specifications of BBO-Niji multichannel LED light source
Bandwidth FWHM (nm)
Typ. Optical Power (mW)*
Recommended Filter Sets
Note: Optical output powers are given for a ø3 mm liquid light guide, use of a ø5 mm light guide will provide approximately 50% more power. Wavelengths and powers are approximate and may vary on LED batch. Each niji will be supplied with full optical power and wavelength test data.
*Typ. Optical Power is specified for the complete system. By removing the channels you do not need, you will reach higher output channels in the wavelengths of interest. Please, tell us your power requirements.
Software of BBO-Niji multichannel LED light source:
- The GUI (Graphical User Interface) is very intuitive and user-friendly allowing to control individually or simultaneously the channel (power and On/off). XML files can be uploaded and different experimental parameter configuration can be saved.
- Niji allows the integration in most of the microscope softwares
- Niji has available the drivers to operate with Micromanager, Micromanager 2 and now a fully compatible Metamorph driver.
Features of BBO-Niji multichannel LED light source:
Up to seven channels – user fit*
Control via dedicated software, MicroManager, Metamorph tablet, or third party software
Solid state LED
XML upload for complete flexibility

315 x 288 x 107 mm
Individual bandpass filter holders for each channel
Liquid light guide with microscope collimators, available separately
12 months, optional 3 years
USB -A (powered), USB-B, RS232 (serial), and TTL via a 15-way connector
*The niji modular chassis allows user upgrades
** New high power 390 nm UV channel is now coming
Applications for BBO-Niji multichannel LED light source:
Almost every application where gas lamps (high pressure mercury vapor arc-discharge lamps-HBO, metal halide lamps...) are used until now:
Widefield microscopy | Life cell imaging (allows low power illumination to avoid photo-bleaching and photo-toxicity | Fluorescence microscopy | Color rendering | TIRF microscopy | Multi-photon microscopy | SIM microscopy (together with a spatial light modulator) | For using with fixed immunofluorescence samples and CLEM | Integration in slide scanning systems | Widefield Optogenetics | In Vitro Optogenetics | Control of horse muscle | Low cost systems (for OEM integration) | Excitation of DAPI (choose the high power 390 nm UV version)
