A special long-pass emission filter in this filter set allows simultaneous viewing by eye or with a color camera of samples that are multi-labeled with quantum dot nanocrystals. It takes advantage of the unique fact that all quantum dots share a common UV/blue excitation spectrum while simultaneously exhibiting narrow and specific visible emission spectra. The highly transmitting, deep-blue exciter efficiently excites all quantum dots with no UV light to damage samples or generate undesirable background, while the high and uniform transmission of the long-pass emission filter provides exceptional and balanced brightness. And with the "no burn-out" performance shared by all BrightLine filters, the permanent performance of this set will outlast even your quantum dots!
This set is mounted in a Nikon NQF Quadfluor Fluorescence Filter Holder, which is compatible with Nikon microscopes E200, E400, E600, E800, E1000, TS100, TS100F, TE 200, TE 300, ME600L, L150A, and some Labophot, Optiphot, and Diaphot series.
