As we enter the last half of the year,

we are excited to share with you some new developments at Semrock.  Firstly, you will notice immediately that we have launched a brand refresh along with our new website.  You may also notice that all domestic online orders receive free ground shipping with this new launch.
Our featured interview with Dr. Hari Shroff, follows his fascinating career path from Janelia Farm and the PALM project, to an NIBIB tenure-track Professor. We’ll be watching closely to see what his next steps will be.
The popularity of our SearchLight tool continues to skyrocket. If you have not yet tried it for yourself, I personally encourage you to test it out before your next filter purchase. See additional updates about SearchLight below in the content of this newsletter.
Semrock continues to travel to Centers of Excellence at Universities to meet with key persons in fluorescence and imaging applications and learn what is new and exciting. If you see us in your hallway, please stop and say “hello!”
Kind regards,
Prashant Prabhat

New At Semrock  

NEW  Brilliant™  Ultraviolet  and  Violet  filter
sets  now  available  in the  online Semrock catalog

We have introduced three new filter sets to support Brilliant dyes (BD Biosciences and BioLegend®). The dyes are upwards of 10x brighter than conventional fluorophores. When used in conjunction with these dyes, these new filter sets allow microscopy users to visualize molecules of small quantities or low expression within the cell as well as to expand multicolor imaging beyond traditional 3 to 4 colors.

Semrock also welcomes the Photonics Manufacturing Institute to the Rochester Community!
