    No sorry, I wrote directly to Hitachi several times but never got an answer back.

    I took the old one apart and the lamp itself looks to be identical to the SOLiD4 lamps, just the housing is different. I suppose you could just switch the lamp in the housing, but I don't think it is worth the risk.

    light source

    Hi RickC7- I was wondering if you ever found an alternative source for the light, or if we must go through Lifetech? Thanks!

    Lamp

    The Lamp comes from Excelitas Technologies and is part of the Cermax Lamps line, part number Y1940.

    The default life is 1500 hours in ICS, then it tells you to change it. Our first lamp made it shortly over 2000hours before I got nervous and changed it. It was still working fine, but i did not want to risk it any longer. A normal 35+5bp run will suck ~125hours of life from the lamp and AB sells the new one for $900, I think... I pretty sure that's not calculated into their cost calculator. I wrote to the company about ordering direct and I'll post the price once I hear back from them.

    Product is exclusive to Hitachi... Waiting on Hitachi to reply now...

    I was told It has been available on the website.
    Check appliedbiosystem.com and on the very top, click "quick order".

    5500xl xenon lamp source

    Does anyone know the manufacturer source for the xenon lamp in the SOLiD5500xl? Interestingly, AB gives Part number 4467122 for this lamp in the 5500 operation manual, but this item does not show up in a part number search at the AB order site!

    Also, any experience on what the actual useful lifetime of the lamp is or experience with failure or performance reduction?

    Thanks,
