BioLED Optical Head: Lightguide-Coupled LED's

Mightex BLS-series BioLED light sources are modularized fully-customizable turn-key solutions for optogenetics, fluorescence excitation, and other biophotonics applications. Precisely-timed and high-intensity light pulses are required in optogenetics experiments to activate channelrhodopsins (ChR2, ChR1 etc.) and halorhodopsins (NpHR) in order to excite and inhibit neurons. To meet these requirements, Mightex has developed a proprietary “IntelliPulsing” technology to allow BLS-series sources to output significantly higher power in pulse mode than what the LEDs are rated for in CW mode.

Mightex BLS-series lightguide-coupled LED's employ the latest high-power LED technologies and a proprietary coupling optics to achieve maximum optical output power. In conjunction with BioLED light source control modules, these LED sources can be used for a wide range of applications including optogenetics and other bio-photonics applications.

Note: (1). “xxxxx” is the Lightguide Adapter code, see Lightguide Adapters table below (for Type-A BLS-GCS only); (2). Type-A, Type-B and Type-H LED sources have different installation drawings. Type-A does not include a cooling fan, whereas Type-B and -H does. When ordering an LED controller for a Type-B LED, please make sure to upgrade the AC/DC power adapter from the 'standard' 12V to 24V. The control module designed for Type-H light sources is BLS-13000-1 (sold separately), which is paired with the suitable AC/DC power adapter and does not require separate upgrade; and (3). Measured at exiting end of a 1 meter long, 3mm-core 0.59 numerical aperture (NA) liquid light guide. IntelliPulsing mode only available when working with BLS-SA02/04-US BioLED control modules; (4). Requires 3500mA (CW) and 5950mA current to achieve quoted output. Consider a BLS-13000-1 with a BLS-IO04-US.
