Obtain clear, spectrally distinct images for high content analysis by adding custom filters to Thermo Scientific™ ArrayScan™ HCA Readers using Thermo Scientific™ ArrayScan™ Emission Filter Wheel Module.

The Emission Filter Wheel Module for Thermo Scientific™ ArrayScan™ HCA Readers and suitable filters can discriminate the spectra of a fluorochrome better so that there can be more efficient use of specific wavelengths to label and image components of a cell.

Features

  • Automated specificity—Permits more flexibility in spectral combinations allowing for imaging of more custom fluorochromes. May reduce background and increase signal-to-noise when fitted with appropriate filters
  • Integrated—Integrated with software and validated for performance for simple setup and customization. Filter turret controlled from protocol software allowing automatic change during plate run
  • Rapid filter switching—Rapid turret movement with switching time of 300 ms between cubes

Key addressable assays

  • FRET (Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer)—FRET is when a donor color molecule (chromophore), in its excited state, can transfer some of its energy (the donor) to another chromophore resulting in a much brighter signal in the acceptor. It is used in studying protein-protein interactions.
  • Qdot® nanocrystals—Tiny semiconductor crystals that can be designed to excite and emit at very specific wavelengths. Cells and structures can be labeled with these and structure identified for analysis
  • Live cell applications —May be used with optical density filters to attenuate light to avoid phototoxicity whenever more spectral discrimination is needed
