VWR VistaVision Illuminator


This Nanodyne LED illuminator replaces the original VWR VistaVision illuminator. Provides a whiter, brighter light than the original, while consuming 90% less energy and generating 90% less heat. Intensity control is continuous from 0-100%. Problems with heat damaged bulb sockets, connector and power supply failure are all eliminated. Never change bulbs again. Don’t waste money on a new microscope because of a bad illuminator. Your “old” microscope probably has better optics and mechanics than a new one. You can keep your perfectly good microscope working for a fraction of the price of an inferior new one. Bring your VWR VistaVision microscope up to date. Replace the old VistaVision microscope light with a new Nanodyne LED system. All Nanodyne illuminator systems include the power supply and required cables. Everything required for the illuminator is included. Your new Nanodyne illuminator will add decades of useful life to your microscope.

Our illuminator was designed to replace the VWR VistaVision illuminator on the inverted microscope, but many other VWR microscopes use the same illuminator. Compare your illuminator with the above picture of the OEM VWR VistaVision illuminator to see if this will fit your microscope. If you are not certain, please contact us for help. We can usually make a custom adapter in case we don’t already have something ready to go.

  • Custom-designed to fit the VWR VistaVision inverted microscope and other models using the pictured OEM illuminator.
  • Due to the convenient location of the illuminator on the inverted and metallurgical microscopes, the standard location for the intensity adjustment is on the illuminator housing. Remote intensity control is still an option. Contact us if this is desired.
  • Easy installation – just loosen the thumb screw holding the original illuminator, remove it, replace with the new Nanodyne illuminator and tighten the thumb screw. Plug in the power supply and it is ready to use.
  • All illuminator systems are backed by our 3-year warranty.
