Powerful, multi-wavelength LED illumination for all your Fluorophores

New X-Cite TURBO is a powerful, six-wavelength LaserLED Hybrid source for fluorescence excitation applications. Providing maximum excitation for up to six fluorophores using our patented LaserLED Hybrid Drive, X-Cite TURBO offers a highly versatile solution for routine to advanced imaging applications. With manual, PC, TTL and analog control, as well as compatibility with existing imaging software drivers, X-Cite TURBO includes convenient control options for any instrument configuration. With six high-power wavelengths, researchers have the flexibility to add additional fluorophores for live or fixed cell imaging to their imaging arsenal.


  • LaserLED Hybrid Drive: Maximum output power. Operate six wavelengths individually, simultaneously or in any combination with no “channel sharing” or delays to change internal filters.
  • Excitation Filter Holders: Precision. Fine-tune excitation spectra to your requirements.
  • Fast-switching: Excitation uniformity. Direct light into instrument with a light guide style that best suits the application. Main unit can be remotely located if space is constrained.
  • Multiple Control Options: Simplicity. Operate with USB, TTL, analog or a combination.
  • Optimized Thermal Management: Reliability. Maximize LED output, lifetime, and stability.
  • High power for Spinning Disk: applications Long lifetime, optimized light delivery through 1.5mm fibre with Crest Optics X-Light spinning disk unit.
  • X-Cite Coupling Optics – optional: Performance. Maximize optical output and uniformity with the highest performing coupling optics available.
