OIDA Sponsored Webinar: How to Make Your Fluorescence Measurement Instrument Fully Wavelength Tuneable

23 March 2021, 10:00 - 11:00 - Eastern Daylight Time (UTC - 04:00)

In the past ten years Continuously Variable Filters have become sufficiently performant for challenging applications in fluorescence detection and spectroscopy. CVF offer an excellent alternative to filter wheels or gratings when full wavelength tunability is a requirement in any instrument. You will learn what Continuously Variable Filters are, what their features and benefits are, and how you can use them to make your instrument fully tuneable and flexible.

In the webinar’s first part BMG Labtech will explain why they chose to replace gratings with CVF in their ClarioStar microplate reader. They will show how they designed a completely new optical engine and what the features and benefits are for their customers. In the second part Delta will explain the filter technology behind this unique microplate reader and demonstrate other application examples.
