Using Next-Generation Thin-Film Optical Filters For Fluorescence Imaging And Detection Systems

By Alluxa Engineering Staff

Within any fluorescence application, there are three basic filters that are needed for operation – the excitation filter, the emission filter, and the beamsplitter. Hard-coated, thin-film optical filters are the best choice for these filters in that they provide the highest standards in transmission, blocking, and both transmitted and reflected wavefront properties, which translates into bright, high-contrast images, and accurate detection of target molecules in fluorescence applications. This white paper further discusses the use of Alluxa’s thin-film optical filters in fluorescence imaging and detection systems.
