Visually demanding laboratory tasks require some of the highest recommended light levels in healthcare buildings. General lighting for laboratories should have an illumination level of 500 lux, however, this requires low-glare and shadow-free lighting conditions.
LED magnifiers offer class-leading performance with low operating and maintenance costs – for all laboratory tasks where high-precision inspection is required.
