    Rochester, NY, Sep 27th , 2016 – Semrock, a division of IDEX Health & Science, LCC, the global authority in fluidics and optics for the life sciences market, introduces their new Multiphoton LaserMUX beam combiners that enable deeper tissue imaging and improved contrast in multi-color and multi-modal fluorescence microscopy. The filters set new performance standards by simultaneously achieving high transmission, high reflection, and low GDD over both reflection & transmission, while maintaining minimal wavefront distortion. Ideal for combining two femtosecond pulsed laser beams, they are perfect for optogenetics and other life science applications.

    “These beam combining filters allow users to achieve higher transmission and reflection levels over an expanded wavelength range, with wavefront performance that is optimized for deep tissue and in vivo imaging” says Prashant Prabhat, PhD, Semrock’s Catalog Business Line Leader.
