Product Overview
  • The NIGHTSEA DFP Dual Fluorescent Protein Flashlight is a portable, battery powered flashlight for viewing fluorescence. The NIGHTSEA DFP includes 2 switch-selected, high intensity LEDs for the excitation of fluorescence in different fluorescent proteins or other fluorophores.

    The NIGHTSEA DFP provides a convenient and powerful tool for screening specimens and samples for two different fluorophores, and for exploring a broader range of fluorescence in the field. A rugged chassis, wrist strap and protective carry case makes the NIGHTSEA DFP an ideal solution for exploring fluorescence in the outside world.

    With each NIGHTSEA DFP flashlight two pairs of NIGHTSEA Barrier Filter Glasses are also supplied, matched the excitation lights inside the flashlight. The NIGHTSEA Barrier Filter Glasses block the reflected excitation light while transmitting the fluorescence with high efficiency, providing excellent viewing contrast.

    The NIGHTSEA DFP flashlight is available with a combination of any 2 of the NIGHTSEA excitation and emission combinations:

    • Royal Blue (RB)
      • Excitation 440-460nm
      • Emission 500nm (longpass filter)
    • Cyan (CY)
      • Excitation 490-515nm
      • Emission 550nm (longpass filter)
    • Green (GR)
      • Excitation 510-540nm
      • Emission 600nm (longpass filter)
    • Violet (VI)
      • Excitation 400-415nm
      • Emission 460nm (longpass filter)
    • Ultraviolet (UV)
      • Excitation 360-380nm
      • Emission 415nm (longpass filter)

What customers think

  • I am very happy with the Nightsea, it serves its purpose for us well in genotyping/phenotyping Drosophila larvae expressing fluorescent proteins. A fraction of the cost of a conventional fluorescence dissecting microscope
