New 2009 Semrock Print Catalog Available
ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Semrock announces the release of its new 72-page, full-color 2009 optical filter catalog. This latest catalog presents highly informative Technical and Product notes along with three new product families and dozens of new optical filter products optimized for applications and tools ranging from fluorescence microscopy and instrumentation to Raman spectroscopy and other laser analytical instrumentation.
The 2009 catalog features many new products that further enhance Semrock's already extensive range of "no burn-out" BrightLine® fluorescence filters, including high-performance microscopy filter sets for the popular mCherry fluorescent protein and ICG. The new LaserMUX™ dichroic beamsplitters efficiently combine or separate up to six of the most popular lasers used for fluorescence excitation (and other laser-based applications). New long-wave-pass fluorescence filter sets are specifically designed for laser-based microscopy where the fluorescence signal levels are very low, as well as enabling applications where the excitation wavelength is well below the emission wavelength.
The 2009 catalog also highlights the latest additions to Semrock's renowned StopLine® notch filters, featuring ultrawide passbands combined with simultaneous deep and narrow laser-line blocking. Unheard of previously in a thin-film notch filter made with multiple, discrete layers, these new patent-pending notch filters attenuate the laser wavelength with optical density (OD) > 6 while passing light from the UV well into the near-infrared (1600 nm). They are especially suited for optical systems addressing multiple regions of the optical spectrum (e.g., UV, Visible, and Near-IR), and for systems based on multiple detection modes (e.g., fluorescence, Raman spectroscopy, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy, etc.).
Expanded services included in the catalog are Semrock's rapid custom-sizing in under a week, and 30-day return policy. Most of Semrock standard catalog products ship the next business day, and all are covered under the company's industry-leading five-year warranty. Request your new print catalog today.
