Prashant Prabhat, PhD
Business Line Leader,


Welcome to the first issue of the Wavelengths newsletter for 2015. Semrock, like our customers, is committed to continually optimizing performance. This issue explores approaches to maximizing fluorescence performance when using LED light engines, and an interview with Professor Raimund J. Ober at Texas A&M University.

Along with the change of the seasons here in Rochester, this issue also marks changes to Semrock.  As we continue to focus on our valued catalog customers, we welcomed Prashant Prabhat to the role of Business Line Leader for Catalog Sales.  In this role, Prashant and his team will be focused on the support needs of researchers in fluorescence microscopy and analytical instrumentation, as well as editorial responsibilities for Wavelengths.  You are in good hands with Prashant and the Wavelengths editorial team, and as always if you have any feedback, suggestions, or comments, they are always welcome.

Tips and Techniques

Prashant Prabhat recently spoke with BioOptics World in a webinar on the impact of LED light engine filters on fluorescence performance. LED light engines provide great convenience and capability for fluorescence microscopy. But their full performance potential is rarely realized. The good news is that you can fix this problem in your own lab.

Product Spotlight - BrightLine® LED light engine filter sets

Semrock’s LED-based light engine filter sets are designed to use common excitation filters between single-band and corresponding multiband configurations to simplify interchangeability when installing the excitation filters into the light engine. This not only provides seamless transition between using single-band and multiband filter sets but also provides significant cost savings. The Full Multiband and Pinkel LED filter sets are also available as –ZERO pixel sets. This further allows for development of multicolor imaging assays by combining single-band and multiband filter sets from the broader BrightLine® filter set family.

Current listing of LED Based Light Engines filter sets is available at Semrock’s website.
