For research work requiring reduced luminous intensity: LED strip lights from BINDER
In the fields of basic research, evolutionary developmental biology, and genetics in particular, a weak light dose is required for many model organisms, including Drosophila, Caenorhabditis, and zebrafish, to thrive. This also applies to moss and the seed germination of higher plants.
Creating natural conditions with LED strip lights
LED strip lights from BINDER are ideal for use in biological applications for which the luminous intensity needs to be reduced. They are available in lengths of 30 cm, 50 cm, and 90 cm, and can be flexibly used in all incubators, cooled incubators, and climate chambers from BINDER. The strip lights are splash-proof (IP 65) and can be operated at between -5°C and 60°C. They have an illuminance of 600 lux. In many cases, a day/night cycle also proves hugely beneficial when natural conditions need to be recreated for research with living organisms. The settings can be programmed using the corresponding LED strip light control unit, which has a built-in timer. The luminous intensity can be adjusted between 0% and 100% using a dimmer. Up to four strip lights can be connected to one control unit, which is magnetically attached to the outer housing side panel with ease.
LED strip lights: Easy to position
LED strip lights are sold as accessories in two types of packs. The starter pack contains two strip lights, a control unit, and fastening materials including clips and power strips, while the expansion pack comes with two strip lights and the fastening materials. The strip lights feature high-quality white LED modules with a color temperature of 6,500 K (cool daylight) that are cast in an aluminum profile rail. They can be flexibly placed in the interior of chambers and connected to the control unit with a cable, which will ideally be laid through an access port, but can also be fed through the door gasket.
