Product Detail

Nightsea Stereo Fluorescence Adapter (UV) - DAPI, Hoechst, BFP, AF350

A simple, modular system that enables you to add a single or multi-spectral fluorescence capability to virtually any existing stereo microscope at a small fraction of the cost of a conventional fluorescence stereo microscope.


The Nightsea stereo fluorescence adapter is ideal for screening, sorting, dissection, forensics, education, QA/QC and more.  It can be added to almost any stereo dissecting microscope in your lab and gives you immediate fluorescence capability to relieve the burden, cost and hassle of having to use a dedicated high end stereo fluorescence microscope each time.  Turns on/off instantly with no warm up or cool down.  

Nightsea is fast becoming a standard tool in Zebrafish, Drosophila, C. elegans,  Xenopus and Axolotl labs.  It allows students in the educational lab to experience fluorescence on live organisms directly in the classroom.  It is revolutionizing forensic, marine biology and industrial labs by giving them access to fluorescence contrast on their routine stereo microscopes.
