Stock parts can be purchased through our eCommerce store. There, you’ll find a variety of products, from bandpass filters to fluorescence sets. The inventory listed here is vast, ready to order, and perfect if you’re looking for a part in a standard size.

We’ll be happy to review your customization and get back to you as soon as possible!
The best way to purchase stock parts is through our website, using the eCommerce store to do is locate the stock part you like, add it to your cart, and check out! We’ve recently added the ability to order up to twenty-five of a single filter on our online store. Customers can also use Build-A-Filter to search our eCommerce inventory of bandpass filters. This inventory type typically allows for the quickest processing time and is great for those who know what they want and need it ASAP!

Rapid Solutions are small quantities of premade custom filters and plate stock that are ready on demand. We carry an expansive inventory of different types of products, from bandpass filters to mirrors, and carefully outline each specification so you know that you’re purchasing the correct customization. We recommend exploring this inventory type if you’re looking to prototype or do proof of concept work! The filters under Rapid Solutions are limited in quantity but exceptional in quality, so make sure you snag your filter fast! Once we sell out of that type of filter in RS, it’s gone for good! The great news is, if this were to happen, we can design a custom filter that is optimized for your application and meets the specification of your RS part.
We recommend that you purchase Rapid Solutions filters through the Build-A-Filter (BAF) form or through our sales department. Our sales representative will work with you to provide the filter that best fits your needs. We are always adding more of our RS inventory to the eCommerce store, so make sure you keep an eye out!
