Frequently asked questions

Optolong offers a variety of single-band filter sets including DAPI, FITC, TRITC, and other various filter sets.
Each set is tailored to specific imaging requirements and fluorophores, ensuring high-quality fluorescence imaging in a variety of applications.

TRITC filter sets are mainly composed of exciters, emitters, and dichroic mirrors. Their wavelengths and specifications are specially designed for fluorescence microscopy imaging applications.

Choosing a Texas Red filter set offers the following advantages:
Specific Wavelength Isolation: Texas Red filters are designed to isolate specific emission wavelengths of Texas Red dye, a fluorophore commonly used in fluorescence microscopy.

High Contrast Imaging: These filters enhance contrast by effectively blocking unwanted wavelengths for clearer, more precise imaging.

Compatibility: Texas Red filter sets are compatible with a variety of fluorescence microscopes and imaging systems, making them suitable for a variety of research needs.

When maintaining a Single Bandpass Filter Set, we should pay attention to the following points:

Handling: Always handle filters with clean, gloved hands to prevent fingerprints and smudges.

Cleaning: Use an appropriate optical cleaning solution and a soft, lint-free cloth. Avoid harsh chemicals and rough materials.

Storage: Band pass filter sets should be stored in a dry, dust-free environment. A protective case is recommended to prevent scratches and damage.

Avoid physical pressure: Do not put pressure or pressure on filters as they may be fragile.

Replace damaged filters: If you notice any damage or degradation to your filters, such as scratches or cracks, consider replacing them to maintain optimal imaging quality.

No, with proper maintenance and use under optimal conditions, these high-quality fluorescence filter sets can last from several years to a decade or more, although of course the more frequently and intensively a filter set is used, the rate at which its performance degrades.
