  • 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

  • Maximizing the Performance of Advanced Microscopes by Controlling Wavefront Error Using Optical Filters

    By IDEX Health & Science

    Any imaging instrument has a limited tolerance for wavefront error – and every optical element in the light path (including dichroic beamsplitters) contributes to wavefront error, thereby limiting overall imaging system performance. When aiming to achieve diffraction-limited imaging performance or better, it is important to consider wavefront errors from all optical elements in order to calculate the total instrument wavefront error, and to compare it to the maximum allowable value.
