CNT-1550-TK Series


The CNT-1550-TK compact femtosecond fiber laser is a mode-locked oscillator using fiber taper embedded in carbon nanotube saturable absorber. Femtosecond pulses are delivered at the flip of a switch. This is the first mode-locked laser powered by battery on the market. It is very compact and inexpensive.

JenLas® D2.fs


JenLas® D2.fs is a femtosecond laser with optimized performance features for medical applications. Designed for operation at pulse repetition rates as high as 200 kHz combined with perfect beam characteristics, it is capable of generating microstructures in organic tissue without causing thermal side effects. Thin-disc laser technology provides the basis for flexible adaptation to performance requirements.

LSM 7 MP and LSM 710 NLO


Multiphoton microscopy (MPM) systems use femtosecond lasers. This pulsed, ultrafast infrared laser excites fluorescent dyes at the focus – the only place where photon density is high enough to produce fluorescence. This focus results in only a small amount of their light being absorbed by biological tissues, compared with visible excitation light.

PacBio RS


The PacBio RS sequencing technology resolves single molecules in real time, allowing observation of structural and cell type variation not accessible with other technologies. The instrument features high performance optics, automated liquid handling, and an environmental control center, all directed through an intuitive touchscreen interface.
