GRANTS PASS, Ore., Sept. 15, 2015 — Dual-Wavelength Excitation Light SourceSuitable for both end users and OEMs, a dual-wavelength excitation light source from Siskiyou Corp. may be used in optongenetics and other life sciences applications.

The IS-LEDc combines the output from two LEDs, focusing their light into a single SMA fiber optic connector, which can then be coupled to standard-format upright microscopes. The device is permanently aligned to eliminate challenges of coupling LED output into fiber.

A controller provides a software and USB interface to enable full digital and independently addressable control of each LED, including external triggering.

The device is available with a choice of any two LEDs from a range of visible and near-infrared center wavelengths, including 460, 525, 590, 735 and 850 nm. Nominal power output is 5 W at each wavelength, with other powers available on a custom basis.

Applications range from optogenetics stimulation to widefield microscopy and fluorescence imaging of microwell arrays.

GLOSSARY
optogenetics
A discipline that combines optics and genetics to enable the use of light to stimulate and control cells in living tissue, typically neurons, which have been genetically modified to respond to light. Only the cells that have been modified to include light-sensitive proteins will be under control of the light. The ability to selectively target cells gives researchers precise control. Using light to control the excitation, inhibition and signaling pathways of specific cells or groups of cells...
