Glen Spectra is pleased to
announce the release of a new range of twelve filter sets which are
optimised for the imaging of QDot semiconductor nanocrystals.
These sets address the problems of auto-fluorescence and
photo-bleaching in biological samples by the use of a novel
excitation filter that excites the quantum dots while blocking UV
energy, which produces unwanted auto-fluorescence. The dichroic
remains the same for all QDot sets and the emission filters are
designed for each individual QDot to give excellent
discrimination and superior image quality.
The range includes filter
sets designed for single and multi-colour labelling applications. The
XF300 and XF310 filter sets include all the filters required for use
with all QDot conjugates for single and multi-colour labelling
respectively and are ideal tool kits for this exciting range of
fluorophores. The remainder of the sets are optimised for individual conjugates.
All the sets are available
in sizes to fit all microscope holders/cubes.
