The NIGHTSEA™ Stereo Microscope Fluorescence Adapter adapts just about any stereo microscope (dissecting microscope) for fluorescence with no modification to the microscope itself.

The modular design lets you easily switch between several different excitation/emission combinations to work with a variety of fluorescent proteins and other fluorophores. There are now six different excitation/emission combinations available, plus white light.

Applications For the NightSEA

This simple system is excellent for:

  • Quick screening of your fluorescent genotypes -Drosophila, zebrafish, C. elegans,...
  • Genotype sorting
  • Fluorescence-aided dissection, injection, or micromanipulation
  • Freeing up your research-grade fluorescence microscopes for more demanding work
  • New faculty start-up budgets
  • Bringing fluorescence into the teaching laboratory

Fluorescence isn't just for research microscopes anymore...

  • Now sort on your laboratory-level stereos
  • Use to facilitate micromanipulation and dissection
  • Expand from your research lab to your classroom

The NightSEA Is Modular...

  • Installs in seconds - just clicks into place
  • Interchangeable excitation/emission combinations
  • Move from microscope to microscope
  • No modification to your microscope needed

The Stereo Microscope Fluorescence Adapter system consists of:

  • Flexible gooseneck lamp base with power supply
  • Light head
  • Ring adapter for microscope
  • Barrier filter
  • Filter shield

Will it fit?

Follow this link to a list of known compatible microscopes. If your microscope does not appear here it does NOT mean it is not-compatible - just that we do not yet have any data to say that it is. This list will be updated frequently as our knowledge base grows. 

Other notes:

The light head, barrier filter, and filter shield are interchangeable so that you can easily switch between excitation/emission light+filter combinations.

The microscope mounting adapter fits up to 67mm to work with the majority of stereo microscopes.

Once you are set up for one excitation/ emission wavelength combination, additional combinations can be added by purchasing a kit that consists of a light head, barrier filter, and viewing shield. These three elements can be removed and replaced in seconds, and color coding ensures that you are using the right combination. The barrier filter clicks on to the ring adapter magnetically, so it is easy to remove it to switch back to white light viewing.
