Enhance your fluorescent lighting options

Screening for fluorescence on agar is advantageous because it is cost-effective and very high-throughput.

While PhenoBooth+ can detect fluorescence, bear in
mind this is a macroscopic CCD imaging workstation and not a microscope. As such, it will not detect subcellular or low levels of expression.

Blue, Violet and Cyan

Relative Luminous Intensity vs. Wavelength is shown below. Violet: 50% intensity range from 375 – 400nm, with peak ~390nm. Blue: 50% intensity range from 465 – 475nm, with a peak at 470nm. Cyan: 50% intensity range from 490 – 530nm with a peak of 510nm.
