A new product series from Spectrolight Inc. called FWS Auto Poly will be launched on February during SPIE BIOS 2019 (Booth #8246). The Flexible Wavelength Selector (FWS) Auto Poly is a unique wavelength selection device that employs Spectrolight’s patented TwinFilm technology to deliver the tunability and adjustable bandwidth of a grating monochromator, together with the imaging advantages of a circular aperture filter.
A single device of FWS Auto Poly can cover a wavelength tuning range of around ~500 nm, with simple alignment and automatic compensation of beam offset. The FWS Auto Poly models feature complete software control of wavelength and bandwidth via a USB link and simple software interface. A few applications for the FWS Auto Poly include hyperspectral imaging, fluorescence microscopy, and machine vision as well as OEM opportunities in life sciences instrumentation for flow cytometry and DNA sequencing. The FWS Auto Poly will debut with six models covering the visible, UV, and custom wavelength ranges.
