Web filter and lighting selector

Share this on social media:

Syngene has released a web-based filter and lighting selector at This service is designed to save researchers using Syngene image analysers valuable time, by helping them choose the right filter and lighting combination for a vast range of dye applications.

The technical site from Syngene contains information on the best imaging conditions to use with any Syngene image analyser for more than 160 commercially available chemiluminescence, fluorescence and visible stains. By selecting the Syngene system, dye and sample format, researchers can automatically access all optimum filter and lighting choices in seconds, making this a time-saving resource for any Syngene system user.

The database is based on either bench conditions Syngene has discovered or manufacturer’s recommendations and will be updated as new commercial dyes become available.
