* Approximate fluorescence excitation (Ex) and emission (Em) maxima, in nm. † Spectral characteristics in nm of the excitation filter, dichroic mirror and emission filter are shown top to bottom for each filter set. Relative signal strength for each filter combination is indicated with pluses and minuses. ‡ High background fluorescence.
