  • Step through the Spectrum with Nanopede™ Filters

    Feb 15, 2023 by IDEX Health & Science

    Spectral flow cytometry requires optical filters covering the UV, visible, and NIR in discrete steps, which may require a balance between instrument cost and filter performance. IDEX Health and Science understands these needs, and we are proud to announce our latest Semrock line of optical filters, which cover the visible spectrum in 20 nm Full-Width, Half-Max (FWHM) steps. Learn more about Nanopede™ Optical Filters.
