We understand that the needs of a clinical laboratory are not the same as the needs of a research lab. While the cost of optical filters may represent only a fraction of what is spent on clinical microscopes, the cost can be burdensome when considering that the cost of such equipment comes out of an operating budget instead of a research grant. It is imperative that you consider performance and cost together when purchasing for the clinical laboratory.
The BrightLine® BasicTM filter sets are optimized for use in the clinical laboratory. In fact, BrightLine Basic filter sets are brighter than soft-coated filter sets of comparable contrast but don’t burn out, further lowering the total cost of ownership. Ideal for routine applications that require cost-effective, high volume capabilities like clinical microscopy, routine analysis, and education.
