BrightLine full-multiband laser filter set: 488 & 561 nm laser sources

Semrock Logo

This full-multiband set is optimized for laser excitation utilizing a 473 or 488 nm laser source for GFP or FITC and a 559, 561.4 or 568.2 nm laser source for mCherry. This set provides high brightness, extremely low crosstalk, and superb signal-to-noise ratio.

Looking for this filter set in one of the following cubes: NTE, OFF, OMF or ZHE?

Our improved version is certified to deliver dichroic flatness <= 1λ P-V RWE @ 632.8 nm for loose and cube mounted filter sets LF488/561-B

Note on spectral plots:
In the past, each shipment has included a spectral plot for every filter and every lot code in the shipment. In an effort to be more eco-friendly, we will no longer be including these plots with each shipment. If you require spectral plot data, please see here for more information.

Optical Specifications
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 Specifications
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 hrs.
