Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, and Etaluma, today announced that they have entered into a sales channel partnership to make Etaluma next-generation inverted LS microscopes accessible to a wider range of researchers and educators. Etaluma’s entry-level LS560 green fluorescence microscope and LS460 monochrome brightfield microscope can now be purchased from the Edmund Optics website and catalog.
Etaluma has always relied upon EO to provide key optical components for its microscopes and the new sales channel builds upon this long-standing relationship. “Etaluma’s instruments deliver an appealing blend of resolution, functionality, and affordability – they provide users with diffraction limit resolution at a fraction of the cost of traditional microscopes,” said Stephan Briggs, Director of Life Science, Edmund Optics. “Adding Etaluma inverted LS microscopes to our product line reinforces our commitment of selling only the best optical products.”
“Edmund Optics has a long history of providing the highest quality optics to the academic and integration markets. Their complementary portfolio of products and unparalleled reputation will increase awareness of Etaluma’s high-resolution LS microscopes and enhance our current selling efforts.” said Chris Shumate, CEO, Etaluma.

Etaluma’s fluorescence LS Microscopes (Lumascopes) constitute a dramatic new concept in solid-state optics with high sensitivity, maximum resolution (near diffraction-limited), and zero pixel shift. Power, control, and image capture occur via a USB connection to a PC and includes time-lapse and live videos. Providing true next-gen microscopy, the compact, inverted design allows imaging in a wide range of labware and settings, including live cell imaging in incubators, hoods, and hypoxia chambers. Etaluma newest product, the LS720, automates the LS620 3-color optical platform with an automated XY stage and autofocus, combining high resolution cell imaging with high content microscopy at an affordable price.
