Spectra has produceded this guide to make your filter selection
easier and quicker.
You can search
for the fluorophore you wish to use and we will match
the filter set for you!
Alternatively, you can
look at our filter sets
and their spectra and decide which one would be most suitable for you.
If you don't require a
full filter set, why not look at our range of separate filter components: exciters,
You can then mix and match to your requirement.

We specialise in the
design and manufacture of high performance, optical interference
filters for fluorescence microscopy. We offer an extensive selection
of dye-specific filter sets for single
and multi-label microscopy applications, including DsRed,
and other techniques.
We have pioneered
developments in filter technology for fluorescence microscopy. Over
the years, innovation in product design focused on improving
throughput and polarisation, while minimising auto-fluorescence and
cross-talk. The resulting optimised filter sets for epi-luminescent
microscopes have enhanced the ability of life scientists to isolate
small Stokes-shifted energy of low intensity and image complex
cellular structures and processes.
From the beginning, our
filter technology inventions has stimulated the science of optical
microscopy and fluorescence detection. We remain committed to pushing
the limits of the science through collaboration with researchers and
All our fluorescence
microscopy filter sets are optimised to maximise emission collection
and minimise optical degradation by using specialised optical
polishing and anti-reflective coatings. Exciters are high performance
bandpass filters with reflective metal layers tolerant to intense
excitation sources. Dichroics are hard surface coated. Emitters are
anti-reflection coated to minimise back reflection and enhance
transmission typically to 90%.
