Simplifying Laser Integration for Optogenetics Microscopy
AMS Technologies presents Siskiyous' new IS-OGP for simple laser integration in microscopy applications
(PresseBox) (Martinsried, )The IS-OGP (Optical Gaging Product) provides a simple, complete solution that adds a laser light source to your microscope for optogenetics research.
Specifically, the IS‑OGP provides a means to introduce a fiber-coupled laser beam into the infinity space of leading optical microscopes having a trinocular setup (including those from Nikon, Olympus, and Zeiss), and then to position the focused laser stimulation spot (10 µm typical with 20X objective) with sub-micron accuracy, anywhere within the field of view.
It positions a small ( 10um typical with 20X objective ) stimulation spot to any location within the field of view. The single-mode FC connectorized fiber optic cable input from your light source, combined with the included FLG-FC/2 optics internal to the IS-OGP (patent pending), creates a collimated input to the rear aperture of the microscope objective.
