PORT MATILDA, Pa., Jan. 19, 2011

PORT MATILDA, Pa., Jan. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- QBC Diagnostics is pleased to announce the release of the QBC ParaLens Advance, a breakthrough product that can easily upgrade any compound light microscope for LED fluorescence microscopy.

The ParaLens Advance builds on the proven success of the ParaLens Microscope Attachment, which introduced the benefits of durable, easy-to-power LED fluorescence microscopy to thousands of labs around the world. The ParaLens Advance improves on its predecessor with a more powerful light source, equivalent to a 100 Watt mercury vapor bulb, and a patent-pending removable filter set arm that allows users to quickly change between objectives whenever necessary.

LED fluorescence microscopy has demonstrated increased sensitivity and speed in numerous research and clinical applications, including the detection of infectious diseases such as tuberculosis and malaria. Recently, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommended that all labs around the world adopt LED fluorescence microscopy for tuberculosis screening.

Craig Stout, QBC Diagnostics Vice President and General Manager said, "The ParaLens Advance was developed to provide the benefits of LED fluorescence microscopy to more users around the world. By upgrading their existing microscopes, these users can meet the WHO's recommendation without investing in unnecessary new equipment."

For more information on the ParaLens Advance, please contact QBC Diagnostics at +1-814-692-7661 or via email at paralensadvance@qbcdiag.com. Product information for the ParaLens Advance is available on the QBC Diagnostics website at www.qbcdiagnostics.com/paralensadvance.
