NIGHTSEATM provides practical and economical solutions enabling researchers to use fluorescence as method to gain scientific information. NIGHTSEATM equipment has been successfully used in laboratories around the world for visualizing fluorescent proteins at both, micro and macro scales for screening/sorting transgenic genotypes (C. elegans, drosophila, mouse, rat, zebrafish, plants,…), using fluorescence to aid dissection, injection and many other scientific applications.
NIGHTSEA’s Stereo Microscope Fluorescence Adapter extends fluorescence to
standard routine stereo microscopes with no disassembly or modification of your
microscope needed. It is a modular system with 5 excitation/emission combinations
to cover a broad optical spectrum.
NEW - NIGHTSEA now with PULSE or DIM:
The NIGHTSEA Stereomicroscope Fluorescence Adapter base unit has been further developed and is now also available as a triggerable or dimmable version on request. IMPORTANT: Only one of the two functions can be chosen for a device.

NEW – now also for Keyence VHX Series:
The NIGHTSEA Stereomicroscope Fluorescence Adapter is now also available for the Keyence VHX microscope series incl. VHX-5000 and VHX-6000. For this microscope model, a special emission filter holder was developed.
Band-pass filter for GFP emission:
The new band-pass barrier filter is for use with the Royal Blue excitation source (ESFA-RB) and transmits the green part of the spectrum from approx. 500 to 560nm. The primary motivation for the green-only emission filter was for the benefit of researchers using GFP in plants, such as Arabidopsis thaliana. Plants contain chlorophyll, which has a distinctive red fluorescence that can sometimes mask the GFP emission. The filter is also useful for applications in which background autofluorescence reduces viewing contrast.

NIGHTSEATM Flashlight Solutions:
NIGHTSEATM further developed a portable battery-operated Dual Fluorescence Protein flashlight (EDFP-1) for fluorescence screenings useful in your lab/animal facility or even in the open field and the smaller BlueStarTM flashlight with single wavelength for GFP exciation.
