New QuantaMAX Filter sets make the hidden visible in Fluorescence Microscopy.

Glen Spectra is pleased to announce the introduction of a new range of high throughput QuantaMAX filter sets, the latest in a long line of microscopy filter set innovations.

QuantaMAX sets enable very weak fluorescence signals to be easily imaged and visualized. The QuantaMAX filters give the highest transmission and deepest blocking currently available in the marketplace resulting in the brightest image with darkest contrast. Glen Spectra believe these filters will aid life science researchers in their quest for new discoveries even on simpler microscopes.

Filter set performance and high throughput are a function, not just of peak transmission, but also of deep blocking. QuantaMAX provides extremely high signal-to-noise allowing very weak signals to be detected, a critical factor for confocal, multiphoton, live cell and in vivo applications where photons are scarce and exposure times critical.

The use of state-of-the-art Energetic Process coatings which are stable, mechanically robust and hygrophobic gives an extremely long life filter even in the harshest environments. QuantaMAX filters have an industry unique 3 year warranty!

Zero pixel shift is standard in these high performance sets. The multi-substrate construction provides protection from mechanical abrasion while maintaining the high wavefront integrity required in imaging applications.
