Semrock Announces Industry Leading Five Year Warranty
ROCHESTER, N.Y. – Semrock, Inc., today announced its new industry-leading five-year product warranty. The warranty coincides with the five-year anniversary of Semrock's first catalog products – the BrightLine® series of fluorescence filters.
Semrock sold its first standard catalog optical filters to end-users five years ago, after pioneering fluorescence filters made with hard Ion Beam Sputtered coatings for the OEM market. Those original BrightLine filters are still being used in research laboratories, hospitals, and universities around the world, and continue to produce the same dazzling results, year after year. "We have long subjected numerous filter samples to rigorous MIL-spec environmental testing as well as optical testing, but now we have the added confidence that comes from the careful evaluation of samples of these original filters from five years ago. They are still going strong, as expected with our Ion Beam Sputtering process which produces dense, hard thin-film coatings that are impervious to humidity and common solvents," said Dr. Turan Erdogan, Semrock's CTO. "Plus, we have now shipped hundreds of thousands of our filters from across our many product lines. This unique combination of rigorous testing, periodic evaluation of actual (now) five-year-old samples, and our substantial customer experience, allows us to confidently back our filters with this new industry-leading warranty."
Details of the warranty are available at www.semrock.com/warranty-policy.aspx.
