EasyLife LRETWe just can't emphasize enough how easy the EasyLife is to perform phosphorescence lifetime experiments. There is a power button to turn on the instrument, and there is dial to adjust the stirring rate of the optional micro-stirrer for the cuvette. Excitation and emission wavelengths are selected with a wide variety of bandpass and longpass filters. Everything else is controlled through the software, even the sample temperature! It is just that easy!


Pulsed Xenon Light Source

The EasyLife™ L uses an exquisite, high power, pulsed Xenon lamp that runs from 1 to 500 Hz under software control. Excellent peak power delivers outstanding sensitivity, while having repetition rate control through the software is essential to study a broad range of lifetimes with a single instrument. OBB's unique light source has a short 1us pulse (FWHM) that is also extremely stable.

The pulsed Xenon lamp provides a continuous broad output of wavelengths from the deep UV to the NIR. Excitation wavelengths are selected with a wide variety of bandpass or longpass filters.

Sample Compartment

Can you believe the EasyLife™ L also includes a software controlled Peltier cuvette holder standard?

That's right! The EasyLife™ sample compartment includes a standard air-cooled Peltier cuvette holder for 10 mm x 10 mm cuvettes or micro-cuvettes. Temperature is controlled with the EasyLife™ software from 20 to 50 degrees Celsius. The sample holder also includes a standard micro-stirrer.

The sample compartment also has a pair of filter holders on both the excitation and detection channels. There are a variety of bandpass and longpass filters available for wavelength selection on the excitation and detection channel.

A variety of options are also available for the sample compartment including the following.

  • Solid sample holder
  • Powder sample holder
  • Polarizers
  • Bandpass and longpass filters
  • Neutral density filters
  • Cold finger dewar


The EasyLife™ L utilizes a unique "single shot" detection technique, where the entire decay curve is collected for each individual pulse of the Xenon flash lamp. This detection technique provides for lightning fast acquisition, superior quality of data, and the unique ability to be able to acquire Lifetime Kinetics.

The standard EasyLife™ L system uses a specially selected PMT that allows for single shot acquisition and detection of lifetimes from 200 ns to 300 ms. The wavelength range of detection is from 185 nm to 680 nm. There is an optional red extended PMT that detects out to 900 nm.

EasyLife™ L System

With our high intensity, ultra-stable, light source is combined with our unique single shot detection system, EasyLife™ L customers are able to reap the benefits of high sensitivity, excellent temporal resolution and the unique ability to utilize both decay based measurements and Lifetime Kinetics. The result is a powerful and versatile lifetime instrument, capable of handling complex multi-exponential decays with an underlying broad range of lifetimes. Did we mention that the EasyLife™ L is the easiest system available to do phosphorescence lifetime experiments?
