The light source offered among the accessories, inside all our LabKits and within the Full Kit 2018 Edition is a bright, white led light source.

It is powered by 2 Lithium batteries, already included. It is not a “special” light, but it has the right intensity for providing good illumination through the samples without saturating the camera sensor. Its optics works well, when properly aligned with the Blips lens, for illuminating a thin sample positioned at the distance provided by the slide support of the smartphone stage (about 20 mm).
This light source is compliant with the safety standard EN62471:2008
