Laboratory lighting

What to consider when choosing lighting for clinical environments in the dental industry, within MedTech, or sampling and research? At D-TEC, we specialize in laboratory lighting, and we have over 30 years of experience within professional lighting for demanding environments. Did we mention that we manufacture all our luminaires in Sweden?

Tekniskt arbete i optimal arbetsbelysning

Optimal brightness – without flickering, shadows and dazzling effects

Besides offering a perfect color rendering (CRI 94) – which is especially important for e.g. a dental laboratory – our light sources also provides an optimal brightness of 3000-9500 lux. Additionally, we have added hundreds of tiny LED diodes that work together to spread your lab lighting using integrated microprisms. The result is a work environment with perfect lighting without flickering, shadows, and dazzling effects – giving you an improved precision.

Avoid eye fatigue by lowering the contrasts

In order to secure an optimal work environment, it is important to choose laboratory lighting that contributes to even out the contrasts between different light sources, in order to provide the entire work area with even lighting. Too much contrast between different brightness levels in a room can result in headaches, eye stress and fatigue, due to the eye being forced to adjust between the different light sources. Do you work with e.g. a bright focus point in a microscope, it is especially important that the light in the room is optimal as well. The same applies to tasks such as dissection or other types of examinations. Ideally, you should be using laboratory lighting that reminds you of regular daylight – which is also the inspiration for our entire lighting range. Read more about it here! 

A hygienic construction for a hygienic environment

Thanks to the fact that we have created a hygienic aluminum construction where we have sealed our LED modules, we can prevent dirt and bacteria from entering the construction.  That makes the luminaires almost maintenance-free. Check out our model Brite that is available in four different sizes – one of our most popular lamps for laboratory lighting.

Lower energy bills 

Our laboratory lighting is so efficient that you start saving up to 85% on your energy bills from day one, resulting in low energy consumption. Read more energy consumption here. With an aluminum construction, you also minimize the electric and magnetic fields at your workplace. It’s also a recyclable material and has a heat-repelling effect. 

More energetic staff – using dynamic laboratory lighting

Did you know that you can change the color temperature during the day by using a timer on several of our models? That way, you can vary the temperature between 3000 and 5700 Kelvin. By doing so, you let your laboratory lighting prepare your staff for a good night’s sleep – during their workday! An improved ability to concentrate and an increased well-being is a bonus. With the optimal lighting, you will most certainly become more alert and work more efficiently – and when you go to bed at night, the contrast between day and night is more defined, allowing the brain to relax better when you sleep. Our models Cloud, Clair and Brite Triton have the dynamic function, and you can read more about Brite here below. In our light lab, you can also try out more of our models and experiment with different brightness and color temperatures to get a preview on how the change will turn out your laboratory.
