Genesis 355 UV Lasers
Mar 2009
Coherent Inc.Request Info
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. 
Coherent_Genesis.jpgThey 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.

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...
