Optical Specifications
SpecificationValue
BlockingBrightLine filters have blocking far exceeding OD 6 as needed to ensure a black background, even when using modern low-noise CCD cameras. The blocking is optimized for microscopy applications using our exclusive SpecMaker™ fluorescence filter design.

General Filter Specifications
SpecificationValue
Microscope CompatibilityBrightLine filters are available to fit Leica, Nikon, Olympus, Zeiss, and Aperio microscopes.
Optical Damage RatingTesting has proven to show no signs of degradation when exposed to at least 6.0 W of power from an unfiltered xenon arc lamp over a 25 mm diameter (corresponding to 1.2 W/cm2) for over 500 hours.

Exciter/Emitter OrientationArrow on ring indicates preferred direction of propagation of light.
Dichroic Orientation"Reflective coating side" should face toward light source and sample.

5-Star Optimized – Filter set is specifically optimized for that fluorophore.
3-Star Compatible – Should result in nearly ideal performance in most situations.
1-Star Acceptable – Actual performance is dependent on specific experimental conditions.
