SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 31, 2009 – The Genesis 355 lasers manufactured by Coherent Inc. are all-solid-state devices that provide true continuous-wave output in the ultraviolet (355 nm). Based on proprietary optically pumped semiconductor laser technology, they are available with output powers of 40, 60, 80 and 100 mW and feature TEMOO beam quality of M2 <1.2 and noise of <0.5% rms. They are targeted at bioinstrumentation UV applications.
They are suitable for use in flow cytometry applications such as egg and fertilized egg sorting, where the peak power of alternative mode-locked lasers poses the risk of mutagenic damage to the DNA in the sorted cells. They are also well-suited to emerging confocal microscopy applications where their short wavelength and low M2 beam provide optimum excitation of Hoechst and Indo dyes.
Available in OEM or end-user versions, the CDRH-compliant lasers offer a choice of air- or water-cooled models.
Spectral purity is >99%, operating temperature is from 10 to 40 °C, power consumption is 500 W, and warm-up time is less than 10 min.
