Optimizing Probe Positioning for Life Science Research

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

Optomechanical probe positioners allow more comprehensive study of biological samples. This trending technology is playing a critical, unheralded role in life science research.

JOHN WINGERD, SISKIYOU CORP.

Photonics technologies enable life scientists to probe samples in the increasingly sophisticated study of processes ranging from neuron signaling to heart muscle contraction, as well as cells and cellular development. As research continues at increasingly finer levels of resolution, the requirements for optomechanical positioning become ever more demanding. Positioning equipment manipulates the probes used to interact with biological samples. This includes positioning a light probe, such as a focused laser or LED, and positioning a physical probe, such as an electrode or microsyringe. ...Read full article
