Fluorescence spectroscopy is a specific technique used to analyze a sample by illuminating fluorescently labeled molecules and measuring the emission wavelength and energy. Fluorescence measurements provide critical information about the sample characteristics and molecular interactions. Platform examples include spectrofluorometers, filter fluorometers and fluorescence lifetime systems. These instruments rely on a light path that will allow efficient illumination of the sample, collection and low-loss propagation of the emitted signal, and sensitive low-noise detection. II-VI offers a broad range of optical components and subassemblies that work together to form leading edge fluorescent spectroscopy platforms. II-VI’s QOMO lasers operate in the visible range and feature extremely stable, low noise, optical output power that help speed up measurement throughput, which is an important factor in reducing cost. II-VI also supports fully custom quick-turn high performance optical filters such as bandpass filters, dichroics, UV filters, notch filters – all offered in single and multiband formats. Other fluorescence spectroscopy platforms rely on gratings to separate and direct the emission signal. II-VI supports volume and precision grating fabrication with various coating options. II-VI also manufactures custom objective lenses and precision optical components that help direct the light to the detector(s). In cases where precision air and fluid temperature control is required, II-VI can provide custom thermo-electric cooling solutions. II-VI also delivers vertically integrated system solutions. Our new product introduction (NPI) engineering team can provide full optical, mechanical and electrical system support from design to volume manufacturing of fluorescent spectroscopy platforms.
