  • Selecting Filters for Fluorescence Multiplexing

    By IDEX Health & Science

    The steady advances in optical thin film deposition technology over recent decades have enabled production of high performance multiband optical filters that address the increasing demand for multicolor fluorescence instrumentation. Though there is now a wide range of available catalog filters designed for a large variety of fluorophores, selecting suitable filters is often a complex process. Here we present considerations relevant to the design of such a multiplexing system. Learn More

  • Understanding and Testing Fluid Flow for Custom Valve Design

    By IDEX Health & Science

    There are many factors taken into consideration during the development of a valve design. Prototyping the complex geometries of valve stators can be expensive and time-consuming but with the use of simulation tools, we can iterate multiple designs quickly and select the most desirable solutions before the first parts are manufactured.

  • Filter Spectra at Non-normal Angles of Incidence

    By IDEX Health & Science
    While most applications call for optical filters to be used at normal incidence, it is important to understand how the spectral properties of different types of filters change when using these filters a non-normal angles of incidence (AOI). There are two main effects exhibited by all filter spectrum as the angle is increased from normal which are discussed in this article.

  • Introduction to Fluorescence Filters

    By IDEX Health & Science
    Optical fluorescence occurs when a molecule absorbs light at wavelengths within its absorption band, and then nearly instantaneously emits light at longer wavelengths within its emission band. For analytical purposes, strongly fluorescing molecules known as fluorophores are attached to biological molecules and other targets of interest to enable identification, quantification, and even real-time observation of biological and chemical activity. Fluorescence is widely used in biotechnology and analytical applications due to its extraordinary sensitivity, high specificity, and simplicity.
