  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. Learn More
