BARRINGTON, N.J., Feb. 23, 2012 — Edmund Optics has announced the expansion, by nearly 100%, of its TechSpec fluorescence bandpass filters for fluorescence imaging applications.
They are matched to common fluorophores used in fluorescence imaging. Available in common wavelengths for popular fluorophores, the filters feature >93% transmission and >OD6 blocking outside the desired passband, less than 3% from the edge of the bandwidth to ensure detection of even the weakest signals. Each filter is manufactured with a hard sputtered coating on a single fused silica substrate for durability, and mounted in a black anodized ring for ease of handling.
Available in more than 40 wavelengths and three diameters, the filters are designed to match emission and excitation bands for popular fluorophores including DAPI, Cy5, FITC, SpectrumGreen, ICG-A and quantum dots. Each filter variety is available in a 12.5-, 25- or 50-mm diameter model. All are in stock and available for immediate delivery.
