MicroPoint - 1

Laser Illumination & Ablation ANDOR an Oxford Instruments company • Simultaneous laser delivery, viewing and acquisition • Low maintenance fibre optic delivery maintains alignment • Quick set-up with manual beam positioning or automatic pattern generation • User control of ablation and illumination plane provided by z-axis telescope • Precise control of energy provided by motorized variable attenuator slide MicroPoint Laser Illumination & Ablation. MicroPoint provides a flexible and field-proven tool for photo-stimulation. Supplied with a patented compact, pulsed nitrogen pumped tuneable dye laser, it is capable of ablation, bleaching and uncaging over a wavelength range of 365 to 656 nm. Broad wavelength range and energy control allow MicroPoint to be optimized for a wide range of scenarios. More than 20 wavelengths can be utilized with available dye resonator cells, while appropriate dichroic filter sets enable simultaneous imaging and photo-stimulation of the specimen^1. Models • MicroPoint Manual Angular and spatial alignment of the illumination via 2-axis joystick. • MicroPoint Galvo Galvanometer beam steering through PC, enables precise and repeatable illumination
