Change of BV421 filter

On May 1st we have changed the BV421 filter in Fortessa-3 laser, -5 laser, and Aria II. This is to get the possibility of using BV480 that is much brighter than BV510 (measured in same filter).

The change will have very limited consequences for you, see the changes.


FluoroFinder is the newest software for designing multicolour panels and for working out if your fluorophore will work on our instrument.
