Illumination with Magnetic Base -- Optimized design for planar lipid bilayer research

Warner Instruments remains the only company dedicated to supplying instruments specifically designed for research using planar lipid bilayer technology and this device forms an integral component of the Bilayer Workstation.


The SUN-1 is an externally controlled, noise-free halogen light source suitable for inclusion in a shielded enclosure. The magnetic base attaches securely to any steel tabletop and the lamp swivel-head allows projection of the beam in virtually any direction. Recent modifications to the design of the reflector result in significant improvements in the lamp's performance.


The lamp is comprised of a magnetic base with 12" gooseneck for accurate positioning of the illumination spot. A jointed swivel-head at the end of the gooseneck allows the beam to easily subtend a solid angle of 2 steradians (half of a sphere).Beam intensity is adjustable to one of eight levels via the rack-mount controller. The lamp electronics are well isolated to prevent the introduction of external EMF into the Faraday cage enclosure and allows recording of data even while the lamp is on.

Dichroic reflector

A dichroic reflector reduces much of the projected heat from the lamp and allows longer illumination times without significant warming the object under study.
