Low-Autofluorescence Bundle Branching Fiber-optic Patch Cord

Low-Autofluorescence Bundle Branching Fiber-optic Patch Cord
  • Unit price per 


Ordering Code:
  • The Low Autofluorescence Bundle Branching Fiber-optic Patch Cord has two or more optical fibers bundled into a single optical connector on one end and individual connectors for each fiber on the other end. It uses low autofluorescence materials and black epoxy to prevent the signal crosstalk between the optical fibers. These patch cords are primarily used in multi-site fiber photometry.

    Before delivery, each patch cord undergoes a photobleaching process that further decreases its natural fluorescence.

    Please note that there may be some limitations on the choice of optical fiber, connector type, or the number of branches.
