We face tradeoffs every day: between quality and cost, custom and standard, and, in the microscope community, brightness and contrast. This issue of the Wavelengths newsletter focuses on designing for optimization and ease-of-use in order to achieve the best of both. We had the chance to sit down with Prashant Prabhat, PhD, Applications Scientist, to discuss common fluorescence microscopy design challenges, which he also addresses in the latest Semrock white paper, Filter Sets for Next Generation Fluorescence Microscopy.

This issue also marks the anniversary of Semrock joining IDEX. We'll share an update on our progress, along with our latest product additions and upcoming events, below. As always, your ideas and comments are welcome. We strive to make this newsletter a valuable resource to you.

SearchLight™ Edge Optimizer

You can now use SearchLight to optimize edges. The latest SearchLight improvements allow you to vary the spectral edge of a filter over a range, specified by Input Array, to calculate an array of Fluorescence Signal, Noise, and Signal-to-Noise Ratio. Any combination of Exciter, Emitter, and Dichroic Spectra can be simultaneously selected for such simulations.
