Semrock Expands into a New High-volume Optics Facility


Rochester, NY – Semrock has opened the door on a new high-volume manufacturing facility for its industry-leading optical filter products. This new facility is capable of producing tens of thousands of spectrally complex, sputtered optical filters per year for high-volume OEM customers. This new facility builds on Semrock’s industry-leading optical filter manufacturing capability and extends it to customer opportunities in the emerging diagnostic and point-of-care healthcare markets where high-volume, miniaturized optics will be an enabling technology.

“We have taken our advanced optical design and manufacturing capabilities to the next level with this new facility.  Products from this new facility will have the same Semrock performance and reliability that customers expect, but in much higher volumes than ever before and at the right price points for the diagnostic market. We offer the most spectrally sophisticated optical filters in the industry which enables superior performance in customer instrumentation, such as faster measurement times, reduced downtime, repeatable manufacturing and lower optical component count,” said Rob Beeson, Semrock General Manager.

Semrock supports the biotech and analytical instrumentation market with three product platforms – optical filters for fluorescence instrumentation & microscopy, Raman instrumentation filters, and laser analytical instrumentation filters.
