An elegant and economical way to add fluorescence to stereo microscopes for evidence examination. I love it!
– Skip Palenik, Microtrace
The NIGHTSEA Model SFA Stereo Microscope Fluorescence Adapter is an economical way to turn any existing stereo microscope into a go-to tool for screening trace evidence. Not everything has fluorescence, but when it is present it can make all the difference in detection. You can’t analyze something until you find it, and fluorescence can help in that critical step. The SFA makes it easy to add this method to your suite of screening tools.

Fluorescence with the NIGHTSEA system and the Keyence VH-ZST lens.
Why would you want fluorescence dimming? In general you want as much fluorescence as you can get! Many naturally fluorescent subjects do not glow very brightly, and the fluorescent proteins and stains used in the life sciences can range from dim to bright but tend to be localized in small areas. The more fluoresced […]
The new NIGHTSEA adapter for the Keyence VH-ZST lens can achieve high magnification fluorescence.
Did you ever wonder how a new piece of equipment comes into existence? The Model SFA arose from a solution to our own marine biology research challenge.
