Ever wondered what’s in your filter cube? FilterReader spectrophotometers 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 series, unique mini spectrophotometers 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° angle.

The two FilterReader spectrophotometer models FRD-350-AU and FRD-385-AU are fully integrated spectrophotometer with the 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 workflow 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.
