Modulight customers are using our in-vitro products as their everyday tools helping with their research by providing controlled and repeatable illumination. Read an application note about in-vitro cell viability and dose escalation study done for a cancer cell line.


ML8500 is a great tool for sequential illumination of multi-well sample plates and optional fluorescence imaging/measurement. Fully automatic system takes care of the rest. Operating the biomedical illumination kit is very easy with an intuitive touch-screen interface and a programming through simple Excel® spreadsheet.

ML8500 illumination system can be equipped with 0-4 internal ML6500 lasers or 0-2 internal ML6600 laser. In addition, up to 9 external fiber inputs may be connected to rear panel fiber ports. Typically the external laser is ML7710 that supports up to 8 laser channels but also other Modulight ML6000 and ML7000 series lasers are supported.

The system supports multiple illumination stations that illuminate different sized areas in the sample. For example, one station can be for Petri dish that is up to 95 mm in diameter and another for 96-well plates that illuminates each well separately with specific duration and intensity. Different illumination stations can be delivered for various well plates (24, 96, 384, 1536 wells) and a total of 4 illumination stations can be fitted in one system.

Accessories & services

ML6600 laser modules can be integrated into ML8500.
