RPMC Lasers will be exhibiting at Biophysical Society annual meeting March 3-5 in Baltimore, Maryland. Stop by our Booth # 339 to see what products we will be featuring.
Biophysics, the bridging science, uses mathematics to explains what happens in nature and applies theories and methods of physics to understand how biological systems work. The field of research has made a critical contribution to understanding the mechanics of how molecules or life are made. Biophysics is a dynamic scientific field with scientist from many different fields such as math, chemistry, physics, engineering, pharmacology, and material science. These scientist use their skills to develop new tools to explore and understand how biology and all life work.
RPMC lasers will showcase lasers specifically designed for Biophotonics and Multi-photon Microscopy.
Biophotonics is the group of techniques that are based on the interaction of light and biological matter. Light is either employed to collect information (as in bio-imaging or optical diagnostic methods), or to process biological matter (as in light-activated therapies or tissue engineering).
- Fluorescence imaging
- DNA anlalysis, sequencing
- Confocal / 3D Microscopy, STED
- Flow / imaging cytometry
The Oxxius Laserboxx line of laser modules are based on state-of-the-art laser diodes, integrated in convenient, high performance modules designed to addresses the demands of biophotonics by providing:
- Stable and low-noise laser sources
- A large panel of wavelengths, intended to match commonly used fluorophores
- Good beam quality (TEM00, fiber coupling available)
- Optical combiners to allow an accurate deliver of multiple laser sources
CW Low Noise Monolithic DPSS benefits:
- Available in the follow wavelengths:
- Excellent beam quality, TEM00
- Outstanding power and pointing stability
- Industry standard footprint with 32mm height
- Interchangeable controller
- Graphic User Interface (GUI) with remote diagnostics.
The LCX lasers are available in an “OEM” version, intended for system integration or in a “Plug & Play,” CDRH-compliant version for academic users.
The L4Cc and L6Cc LaserBoxx laser module combiner from Oxxius, dichroicly beam combines four/six different diode and/or DPSS lasers into a single optical beam path. From there the output can be delivered from one to four output ports, via free space outs or single-mode fiber optic cables. Multiple output are often preferable when utilizing both ultraviolet and visible or infrared lasers in the same unit. This flexibility allows for the use of both low OH fiber and solarization resistant fiber to improve the throughput and lifetime of the unit. Additionally, an optional extension module can be added for enhanced flexibility by integrating fast switching output ports for FRAP, and adjustable split power outputs for light sheet microscopy.
The L6Cc and L4Cc wavelength laser module combiners are available in both OEM and turnkey versions making it ideal for both systems integrators and laboratory users. The unit can be directly modulated through analog and digital I/O or controlled by a computer graphical user interface via USB connection.
– Up to 7 combined wavelengths (with external module)
– Proven long-term stability
– Modular optical design
– Comprehensive optical design for easy maintenance
– Windows Graphic User Interface
– Optional multiple outputs
Spark Lasers, experts in mode-locked fiber lasers, offer the ALCOR series of compact femtosecond lasers for biophotonic applications, specifically 2-photon Microscopy. The 920nm ALCOR laser series produces high-average power with ultrashort femtosecond laser pulses (down to <140 fs) at a high repetition rate (80 MHz standard, others optional) in an ultra-compact and robust format. ALCOR is a fiber laser with best-in-class quality and highly stable performance. The integration of state of the art high-power amplifiers and proper pulse management system enable remarkable pulse quality at high average power with no virtually maintenance required.
