An Overview of The PAX 10 From Excelitas Technology

Precision-Aligned Xenon Light Sources: PAX Family

The PAX-10™ by Excelitas is a Precision-Aligned Pulsed Xenon Light Source offering 10 Watts of power. It has a compact design that integrates the flash lamp, trigger circuit, and power supply in an EMI-suppressant enclosure. The PAX family is the perfect pulsed Xenon light source for clinical diagnostics, drug discovery, proteomics, in-vitro diagnostics, life sciences, and analytical instrumentation applications. It features a pre-aligned arc position that is precisely located relative to a datum feature on the case’s mounting surface. The pre-aligned arc position provides room for “plug-and-play” field replacement, completely eliminating alignment time and reducing OEMs’ costs and machine downtime.

Incorporation OF Xenon Flash Lamp Tech

The PAX 10 makes use of Excelitas’ reliable pulsed Xenon flash lamp technology. This enables it to deliver high radiant intensity over a continuous spectrum from the ultraviolet to the infrared. In addition, it provides a long-life rating of over a billion flashes. It is available in two arc orientations with user-selectable analog or digital intensity control to make it even more comfortable for the person operating it.

Applications of The PAX 10

The PAX 10 has a variety of applications ranging across different fields, as earlier mentioned. From medicine to industrial and also commercial, there are a dozen different ways in which you can make use of the PAX 10 by Excelitas. Here are some of them.


Absorption Analysis

This refers to the spectroscopic techniques that measure the absorption of radiation, as a function of frequency or wavelength, due to its interaction with a sample. With its compact design and ten watts of power, the PAX 10 makes it so much easier.


This analytic method for detecting and measuring fluorescence in compounds that uses ultraviolet light stimulates the compounds, causing them to emit visible light. The PAX 10 emits ultraviolet light at a steady rate, which stimulates the compounds being tested, thus enabling them to emit a certain amount of light, which can then be measured. 


This majorly involves the study of radiant light, and the PAX 10 can be very helpful in that. Its ability to emit high-intensity radiation for a continuous period of time makes it very easy for the person studying the light to make observations as well as arrive at a conclusion.

Liquid Chromatography

From the word chromatography, liquid chromatography is a separation technique in which the mobile phase is a liquid, where sample ions or molecules are dissolved. As one of its many uses, the PAX 10 can also be used during this process.


This is a scientific technique that is used to determine the concentration of colored compounds in solutions using an application of the Beer-Lambert law, which states that the concentration of a solute is proportional to the absorbance. This is another scientific process that can be made easier with the use of the PAX 10.


With its many uses, there is no reason why you should be overlooking the PAX 10. For more information about the PAX 10 or to make an order, visit the Excelitas website on
