Lighting for microscopy and visual inspection:

Lighting used for microscopy and visual inspections must be impressive down to the finest detail. Durable short-arc lamps are the perfect solution here and offer a suitable light solution for every application.

Visible microscopy as well as qualitative and quantitative fluorescence microscopy in particular require highly effective light sources. These procedures form an elementary part of quality inspection and examination processes in industry and in science. So the lamps should always set a good example in terms of quality.

Microscope replacement lamps available at Planet Bulb.

A Closer look at the HBO Mercury short-arc Microscope Replacement Lamp:

OSRAM HBO® mercury short arc lamps are widely used in the medical and scientific fields for fluorescent microscopy and industrial UV-curing. In an OSRAM HBO lamp, a luminous arc is generated in a high pressure atmosphere of mercury vapor.
