MILPITAS, Calif., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- JDSU, the leading enabler of broadband and optical innovation, introduced a new line of fluorescence filters utilizing its industry-leading and proprietary UCP-1 coating platform for use in various biomedical instrument applications. These filters were most recently showcased at the International Biomedical Optics Symposium in San Jose, California.
JDSU's fluorescence filters are designed specifically for visual fluorescence applications used in laboratory environments conducting genetic and protein research. These filters have high optical density in one spectral region in order to eliminate noise, while simultaneously achieving high transmission in the bandpass region, maximizing signal throughput.
JDSU's unique fluorescence filters are coated using the proprietary UCP-1 platform, ensuring excellent signal-to-noise ratio based on superior layer deposition control. The high signal-to-noise ratio provided by the filters enables speed, precision, and the detection of even very weak fluorescent signals in biomedical research. The UCP-1 platform using magnetron sputtering, offers superior speed, tight spectral control and low defect levels resulting in breakthrough performance and yields for a thin film coating platform.
"JDSU's high performance fluorescence filters, with their high signal-to- noise ratio and steep transition zones, are enabled by our proprietary UCP-1 technology," said Carla Feldman, marketing manager for JDSU's advanced optical technologies. "With JDSU's rich history of optical innovation we believe we are well positioned to greatly enhance our customers' ability to cost- effectively design and deploy highly accurate biomedical instruments."
Key benefits to JDSU's fluorescence filters include: -- Excellent signal-to-noise ratio due to superior layer deposition control -- High spectral precision -- Single substrate hard-dielectric architecture ensuring durability, no epoxy in the light path and parallelism -- Lower cost compared to Ion Beam Sputtering filters due to UCP-1's faster throughput based on deposition rates and cycle times
JDSU's fluorescence filters can be used in a variety of biomedical applications including microscopy, flow cytometry, microarray scanners, microplate readers, high content screening and fluorometry.
