Prior Scientific releases new range of microscope filter wheels and shutters

Prior Scientific announces an addition to their range of microscope filter wheels and shutters. The new HF110A/32 holds ten 32mm diameter filters and fits to the excitation ports of a range of popular microscopes from manufacturers including Leica, Nikon, Olympus and Zeiss.

Filtering of excitation and emission light is vital in fluorescence microscopy. The HF110A/32 filter wheel from Prior Scientific offers a way to quickly and precisely change the wavelengths of light that your sample is exposed to. The filter wheel takes less than 95 milliseconds to move between adjacent positions on the filter wheel, enabling the end user to quickly alter the fluorophore excited – ideal for multi-fluorophore applications where rapid imaging is essential.

If desired, it is also possible to mount (using an extensive range of adapters) the HA110A/32 filter wheel on the emission port of most microscopes. Magnetic covers on both sides of the HA110A/32 filter wheel allow quick and easy filter changing.

Both filter wheels and shutters can be easily controlled using the Prior Scientific ProScan® 3 control system, which is compatible with a wide range of microscope manufacturers imaging software packages. The end user can therefore control all aspects of their microscope system from a single point, allowing precise coordination of illumination, stage movement, focus movement, shutter and filter wheel operation and image capturing.
