Semrock Inc.

Dec 2012
Based in Rochester, N.Y., Semrock Inc., a unit of Idex Corp.’s Optics & Photonics platform, has opened a high-volume manufacturing facility for optical filters. The expansion will enable Semrock to focus on high-volume miniaturized optics for the emerging diagnostic and point-of-care health care market. Semrock supports the biotech and analytical instrumentation market with optical filters for fluorescence instrumentation and microscopy, Raman instrumentation filters and laser analytical instrumentation filters.

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. 
optical filters
An optical element that blocks or transmits a selected wavelength of light. Optical filters can either be absorption filters or interference filters. Absorption filters absorb any unwanted wavelengths while the interference filter will use the effects of constructive and destructive superposition to transmit only the selected wavelength.
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...
