Nov 2007
Omega-Optical_Front-CoverSe.jpgOmega Optical has released its 2007 catalog “Precision Optical Filters for Fluorescence Microscopy,” which includes 15 new filter sets for fluorescent proteins and 10 new sets for Förster resonance energy transfer applications. The publication details an extensive selection of dye-specific sets for single- and multilabel microscopy applications, including Pinkel, Sedat, quantum dots, ratio imaging, multiplex fluorescence in site hybridization, and confocal and multiphoton microscopy. It provides a fluorophore reference table, light source and spectral data, an explanation of filter nomenclature, guidelines for choosing the optimal filter set for an application, and a list of components organized by wavelength.

fluorescence microscopy
Observation of samples using excitation produced fluorescence. A sample is placed within the excitation laser and the plane of observation is scanned. Emitted photons from the sample are filtered by a long pass dichroic optic and are detected and recorded for digital image reproduction. 
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
