Ever wondered what’s in your filter cube? FilterReader spectrophotometer will give you the answer in a few seconds.
Identifying and confirming transmission characteristics of filters and beam splitters used in fluorescence microscopy is often critical especially when troubleshooting a system or an experiment. To address this need Mightex has developed the FilterReader, a unique mini spectrophotometer specifically designed for measuring spectral transmission of excitation filters, dichroic beam splitters, and emission filters. A high-resolution CCD spectrograph coupled with a solid-state light source provides high dynamic range measurements in a compact package. A sample cart holds excitation filters and emission filters at vertical position, and beam splitters at a 45-degree angle.
FilterReader is a fully integrated spectrophotometer with a footprint of a book. All one needs is a PC to run the control software, which communicates with the FilterReader via a USB interface. FilterReader software guides users through an intuitive work flow which leads to the measurement results after a few clicks. Results can be displayed in spectral transmission or optical density. Measurements of filters and beam splitters can be overlaid on a single chart. Various data saving and chart printing functions are supported.
Unlike traditional spectrophotometers, FilterReader spectrophotometers are small enough to be easily stored when not in use. The solid-state light source in the FilterReader also ensures a trouble-free use for years without the need to change the light source.
