  • Exciting Texas Red
May 2008
Newport CorporationRequest Info
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., May 21, 2008 – Newport Corporation’s Spectra-Physics Lasers Division has unveiled the Excelsior-594 Laser. This multi-longitudinal mode laser with 30 mW of output power at 594 nm, is ideal for flow cytometry and emerging microscope and DNA sequencing applications that rely on exciting fluorescent dyes like Texas Red.

The Exelsior-594 Laser is the twelfth addition to the Excelsior Laser family, which is now a complete line of low power continuous wave lasers for semiconductor and bioinstrumentation applications. Excelsior_orange.jpg

Spectra-Physics' Excelsior-594 Laser

"Three years ago, when we introduced our first Excelsior laser, our goal was to provide a complete product family of lasers for the next-generation applications being developed by our leading OEM customers," said Jürgen Niederhofer, product manager for Spectra-Physics.  "Over the last 36 months, we have continuously expanded and enhanced the product offerings, and today we are very excited to release the twelfth member of the Excelsior family.” 

Spectra-Physics' Excelsior laser platform includes low power CW lasers at 375, 405, 440, 473, 488, 505, 532, 561, 594, 635, 785, and 1064 nm.

flow cytometry
A method of measuring the characteristics of microscopic particles, usually cells, as they flow in a fluid stream through a beam of light. Particles may be stained with fluorescent dye and the fluorescence detected via laser illumination.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
