These are European bulbs from Osram/Sylvania, sold by Perfecto for their 
SHOLigth fixtures. Mine sport a "made in Italy" label. And the Osram rep
is rigth, the American Osram/Sylvania data sheet for the Dulux L model 
lists color temperatures up to 4100K only. You'll probably have to buy 
the 5000K model from places that sell the Perfecto fixtures.

The ballast in my 36" SHOligth is the QT2x54 PHO.
