The NIGHTSEA Model SFA Fluorescence Adapter system adds fluorescence to the Keyence VHX Series of Digital Microscopes (VHX-2000, 5000, 6000) using the same approach that we take with conventional stereo microscopes – the combination of an LED-based light source with a matching barrier filter. The system consists of a free-standing lamp that accepts modular LED light heads, a barrier filter mounted in a holder that slips over the end of the Keyence lens*, and a pair of barrier filter glasses.
*Fits on the VH-Z00, VH-Z20, VH-Z50x and VH-Z100 series lenses
NOTE – February 2018 – The current adapter does not fit on the VH-ZST lens. We are close to having a version that will work with that lens and will announce it here.

Industrial application: Examining electronic components that were embedded in epoxy, cross-sectioned, polished, and highlighted with a fluorescent epoxy-like dye. Imaged using the Keyence VHX-5000 with the NIGHTSEA fluorescence adapter. Royal Blue excitation-emission set with longpass filter, and white light added to better show the components.
There are five excitation/emission combinations available for the system.
