All Filter Sets
Most fluorescence instruments, including microscopes, are based on optical filters.
A typical system has three basic filters: an excitation filter, a dichroic beamsplitter, and an emission filter. A combination of these filters make up a filter set, that are popularly used in microscopes. We stock a wide selection of filter sets optimized for the most popular fluorophores and fluorescence microscopes and imaging systems.
High transmission, steeper edges, precise wavelength accuracy and carefully optimized blocking mean better contrast and faster measurements.
Most IDEX Health & Science Semrock filter sets provide a balance between high-brightness and high-contrast. However, specific filter sets are optimized for high-contrast or high-brightness imaging. Single-band sets enable imaging and visualization of single fluorophores whereas multiband filter sets allow for imaging of a sample labeled with multiple fluorophores. Multiband filter sets are also available in several different configurations such as “Full Multiband,” “Pinkel,” and “Sedat” configurations that are specifically optimized for visualization, imaging speed and contrast.
