Example text

Typically adds several hundred milliseconds of sample exposure before and after image acquisition, which results in significantly faster photobleaching especially at low exposure times. In addition, it is important to use optimized emission filter sets. For example, for single-channel EGFP imaging, we use a long-pass dichroic mirror and emission filter (Semrock) with edge wavelengths of $500 nm. This allows maximum detection over most of the EGFP emission spectrum and results in a greater than 50% signal increase at the same exposure settings compared to high-quality multiband pass filter sets.
