250 MHz for Life Science Applications
16 Jan 2019
The helixx is an innovative plug and play laser featuring a unique 250 MHz repetition rate, designed for life science applications. Its features offer tangible benefits, including high power (>2.3 W), short pulse duration ~50 fs in a hermetically sealed, turn-key operation housing, combined with long-operational lifetimes and high stability. The system is tuneable between 720 nm and 920 nm, to meet the requirements of the user. A range of optional features are also available to meet wide-ranging needs: pulse train monitoring, repetition rate control, active locking and modulation of pump-power for phase stabilisation, where required.
The helixx is well suited to two-photon microscopy, as its 250 MHz repetition rate significantly lessens the effects of photobleaching and phototoxicity in order to minimise cell damage and emission dead times of typical fluorophores for optimal imaging results. Laser Quantum prides itself on robust and reliable lasers with long lifetimes and exceptional performance, offering remote diagnostics and support via proprietary connection software.
