LED-based light engines are steadily replacing traditional mercury, metal-halide and xenon light sources in fluorescence microscopy. As the spectral output of LED-based light sources differs from that of traditional sources, optical filter sets which were designed to take advantage of the peaks of the traditional sources, may now be sub-optimal for use with LED-based light engines. Semrock is now offering eleven initial sets in single-band, full & Pinkel multiband configurations designed to be spectrally aligned with the excitation output of the most popular LED light engines on the market today.
Each filter is hard-coated for no burn-out performance. These multipurpose fluorescence filter sets give the highest transmission, deepest blocking and sharpest of edge transitions to allow you to see more of your image, reveal more detail, maximise your productivity with faster image capture and preserve your data with reduced sample bleaching.
Each fluorescence filter set can be shipped already mounted in your chosen filter cube if you order them together. This service is free.
48-Hour Cube Mounting Service.
If you purchase a filter or filter set and a compatible cube holder together, why not take advantage of our complimentary cube mounting service? The cube mounting option menu is available from the shopping basket menu after you have placed your filters and cube in your basket. Simply select the relevant option and we will mount it for you. Alternatively, feel free to contact us and let us know what you prefer.
