This four-filter BrightLine fluorescence set is specially designed to achieve high-performance fast ratiometric imaging of Ca2+ using Fura-2 as an indicator. The carefully optimized excitation filters provide superb balance of free and saturated Ca2+ signals, while minimizing the crosstalk and noise, resulting in the most accurate ratiometric measurements. The high signal throughput of the filter set permits reliable Fura-2 (Ca2+) measurements, even when using light sources of relatively limited ultraviolet output. Independent laboratories have measured this set to have 2-4X the free and saturated signals as compared with filters from the leading competitor.
This set is mounted in a ZEISS Microscopy FL CUBE EC P&C Fluorescence Filter Holder, which is compatible with Axio Imager, Axiostar Plus, Axioskop 40, Axioskop 2 (post-2001), Axioplan 2i, Axioplan 2ie, Axiovert 200, Axiovert 40, Axio Observer, Axio Examiner, and Axio Scope A1, from ZEISS Microscopy.
