Fluorescence has diverse applications in science, education, art, forensic sciences, industry and more. NIGHTSEA provides complete and economical solutions – light sources and matched filters – for viewing and imaging fluorescence at scales from macro to micro. With both off-the-shelf and customized equipment we have helped thousands of customers around the world enter this hidden spectral realm.
“I started out making equipment for myself to explore for fluorescence in the sea while SCUBA diving at night. The challenge of working underwater in the dark is a great motivator for making simple, reliable gear that just plain gets the job done. This mindset guides the design of everything that NIGHTSEA produces to view and image fluorescence, wherever you need to work.”
