Glen Spectra is pleased to
announce the introduction of a new fluorescence filter set for use
with Kaede proteins. The fluorescence from Kaede protein changes from
green to bright red when exposed to UV light, providing a simple and
powerful tool for regional optical marking. The new XF153 filter set
makes this process much easier for researchers by accommodating the
green and red fluorescence and the UV conversion.
The Kaede filter set is
ideal for real time fluorescence imaging in the study of cell
dynamics, protein migration and to identify individual cells for
optical marking. The set includes the excitation and emission filters
for both the red and green flouresence and also filters which have
been specifically designed to give optimal Kaede colour conversion
under UV. This allows the researcher to concentrate on research
rather than filter selection. This filter set has been designed in
collaboration with Atsushi Miyawaki.
