    Rohnert Park, CA, September 24, 2017 — Semrock, a unit of IDEX Health & Science LLC, has launched new features within SearchLight™ that are designed to provide Intelligent User Experience in selecting optimal filters. SearchLight™ is the premier online modeling resource for fluorescence microscopists and optical system designers, enabling The Right Solution, Right Now.

    “SearchLight™ has become an indispensable tool for our customers. However to design optimal systems, SearchLight™ users need to be intimately aware of our rapidly expanding catalog product offerings. Creation of the latest Intelligent User Experience within SearchLight now makes it much easier for our customers to identify optimal filters for any fluorophore”, says Jim Passalugo, Semrock’s Business Line Director. “Creation of Intelligent User Experience based on sophisticated proprietary algorithms is a new direction for SearchLight™ and we plan to continue this journey in-collaboration with our customers.”

    SearchLight™ is a free, online spectral plotting and analysis tool that allows fluorescence microscope users and optical instrument designers to model & evaluate the spectral performance of fluorophores, filter sets, light sources, and detectors as components of an overall system. Its intuitive user interface makes it easy to manipulate spectral component specifications and plot spectral results. The System Calculator allows the user to quantify system metrics including signal, SNR, and bleed through; as well as to compare various system configurations against each other.
