Groundbreaking LED Light Engine Filter Sets from Semrock

Press release date: Jun 20, 2014

Rochester, NY -- Semrock announced their newest fluorescence filter set product family optimized for LED light engines. Seven sets are available in single-band, full and Pinkel multiband configurations optimized for compatibility with the most popular LED light sources available on the market today. Designed to be spectrally aligned with the output of popular LED light engines, all of the new filters offer the high performance and value you expect from Semrock filters.

LED-DA/FI/TR/Cy5-4X-A was designed in particular for use with DAPI, FITC, TRITC, and Cy5 in Pinkel quad-band configurations, with a quad-band beamsplitter and a quad-band emitter, plus four "no burn-out" single-band exciters that are intended to be mounted in the LED based light source.   All configurations are available preassembled in a microscope cube.

The new LED filter sets are available for theoretical modeling using the Semrock Searchlight online toolbox. Comparative data on the benefits of the new LED Fluorescence filter set family versus conventional sets designed for standard broadband light sources such as mercury or xenon arc lamps are available here.

All sets are in stock and ready to ship next day. In addition, these offerings can be custom-sized with rapid delivery and are covered under the ten year Semrock Warranty.  Additional LED light engine optimized sets will be added to the line-up throughout the summer.
