Semrock Filter Set: ICG-B

BrightLine® single-band filter set, optimized for Indocyanine Green and other like fluorophores

This filter set is ideal for use with ICG as well as other deep-red/near-infrared fluorophores. The longer excitation and emission wavelengths of these fluorophores enable deeper tissue penetration. The superb brightness and excellent signal-to-noise ratio of this filter set is also ideal since deep tissue imaging applications often also tend to yield very low light levels.

Individual filters and filter sets (no cube):
These filters sets contain individual filters. For filter sets already mounted in a holder/cube, scroll down to see complete mounted sets with cubes.
