- Drop-in Filter Cubes for Nikon and Olympus Microscopes
- Easily Mount Fluorescence Imaging Filter Sets: Emission Filter, Excitation Filter, and Dichroic Mirror
- Mounts Provide Hassle-Free Alignment
- Pre-Mounted Filter Cubes Available
Thorlabs offers Drop-in Filter Cubes for the most popular Olympus and Nikon fluorescence microscopes. Please see the compatibility table below to determine the correct filter cube for your application. The filter cubes hold one Fluorescence Filter Set, which includes a Ø25 mm emission filter, Ø25 mm excitation filter, and 25.2 mm x 35.6 mm dichroic mirror. Optics can be mounted, aligned, and swapped out easily. Assembly manuals for the Olympus MDFM-MF2, Nikon MDFM-QFXL, and Nikon MDFM-TE2000 microscopy cubes are available below.
These drop-in filter cubes are offered as empty mounts but if a Thorlabs Fluorescence Filter Set is purchased at the same time, we will premount the optics at no additional charge. In order to take advantage of this option, please contact Technical Support prior to ordering. Other sets may be ordered and interchanged by the user. Other excitation filters (Ø25 mm, 5.0 mm thick), emission filters (Ø25 mm, 3.5 mm thick), and dichroic mirrors (25.2 mm x 35.6 mm x 1.05 mm) may be used in the filter cubes for specific wavelength applications.
