SANTA CLARA, Calif., Aug. 24, 2009 – The Genesis 355-150 S laser from Coherent Inc. delivers true continuous-wave ultraviolet solid-state performance, producing more than 150 mW of TEM00 output for flow cytometry and other live-cell biological applications. It is based on proprietary and patented optically pumped semiconductor laser technology, the 355-nm device eliminates the potential high peak power problems arising from older quasi-continuous-wave lasers. With low output noise and a single spatial output mode with M2 <1.2, it is suitable for use in high-throughput applications that require best signal-to-noise ratio data.

Coherent_Genesis.jpgThe laser’s high power increases the throughput of live cell applications including egg and fertilized-egg sorting, where the peak power of mode-locked lasers poses the risk of mutagenic damage to the DNA in the sorted cells. It also is suitable for other fluorescence-based applications, including confocal microscopy, where its short wavelength and low M2 beam provide optimum excitation of Hoechst and Indo dyes.

The CDRH-compliant laser is available in air- and water-cooled versions, and in OEM or end-user models. Spectral linewidth is <50 GHz full width half maximum, spectral purity is >99%, beam divergence is <1.2 mrad, beam pointing stability is <6 µrad/°C, and beam pointing tolerance is <5 mrad. Operating temperature is from 10 to 40 °C, power consumption is 500 W, and operating voltage is 100 to 240 VAC.

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...
