Omega Optical Partners with Olympus America
Filter Set by Omega Optical
August 2, 2012
Omega Optical is partnering with Olympus America to provide customers with fluorescence microscopy filters mounted
in genuine Olympus manufactured filter cubes. The closer relationship between the companies will provide greater
convenience to customers.
Both Olympus America and Omega Optical want to avoid the potential problems of misaligned filters placed in non-original
microscope cubes. In addition, the partnership will allow for faster response to filter requests for the new BX3 and IX3
models that require click-on type cubes. Omega Optical will continue offering the BX/IX turret style dovetailed cubes.
Along with the Olympus cubes, Omega Optical has developed QuantaMAX, single substrate hard-coated filters and sets,
to provide complete premium performance. The QuantaMAX sets are designed to offer both dichroic filters steep cut-on
edges and the excitation and emission filters > 90% transmission. The optimized set of excitation, dichroic, and emission
filters are mounted in genuine Olympus filter cubes. They enhance the collection of your fluorescence microscopy sample signal.
