Going Beyond the Filter: Advances in Spectral Imaging Technology

Available Now On Demand

The use of multiple fluorophore labels is a powerful approach for cell imaging experiments. However, when using different fluorophores together, it is critical to determine any overlap in their emission spectra since this could challenge data analysis. If significant overlap exists, spectral imaging technologies can be used to resolve individual fluorophore signals. How does this work, and which applications are best suited to spectral imaging? In this special webinar, our speakers will discuss the applications of spectral imaging technology in life science research.

In this webinar, you will:

• Learn about recent advances in spectral imaging technology

• Hear examples of the application of spectral imaging in experiments, and discover its experimental

• Hear examples of the application of spectral imaging in experiments, and discover its experimental benefits

• Have the chance to ask questions of our expert speakers during a live Q & A session
