Abstract

A system comprises a base defining a plane perpendicular to an axis, a set of elements mounted on a surface of the base parallel to the axis, and a drive assembly in communication with the base. Each element is positionable within a respective guide channel of a mechanical structure containing optical detectors, and each element includes a plurality of sites generally parallel to the axis for securing an optical filter. The drive assembly is configured to move the base along the axis to position a respective site of each element in the set of elements in the respective guide channel relative to an optical detector.
