Ottawa, Canada, Dec.14, 2020

In an effort to support the rapidly growing use of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in rapid diagnosis of diseases such as COVID-19, Iridian Spectral Technologies has introduced a line of ultra performance optical filters specifically designed for Real-Time PCR applications.  The ultra PCR fluorescence filter sets provide “more signal, with less background” improving the signal to noise ratio for these instruments.

Standard filter sets address fluorochromes including:

  • FAM, HEX, ROX, Cy5, Cy5.5

These new filter offerings can be customized for specific instrument needs or to address other fluorescence channels and leverage Iridian’s more than two decades of experience producing high quality, high value optical filter solutions.  See more about Iridian’s solution for this application at:
