If one of the illuminators on the uScopeGX burns out, is it possible to replace it?
Yes. However, changing the illuminator requires factory re-alignment of the illuminator and re-calibration of the uScope. This is covered under the standard maintenance agreement for your uScope.
The LED is not a user-service item nor can it be replaced without re-aligning and re-calibrating the uScope.
We use LEDs that are designed with a typical life of 20,000 hours. You should be able to scan many thousands of slides with the supplied illuminator.
