Multiwavelength laser engines for life sciences instrumentation by Coherent

April 13, 2017
The OBIS CellX laser light engines deliver up to four separate laser wavelengths from a single module.

The OBIS CellX laser light engines from Coherent (Santa Clara, CA) deliver up to four separate laser wavelengths from a single module, lowering the complexity and overall cost of laser integration in multiwavelength life sciences instruments such as flow cytometers. Available as a three-channel version with outputs at 405, 488, and 640 nm or a four-channel version that also includes 561 nm, the engines offer a choice of either 50 or 100 mW output power per wavelength for use in cell analysis and cell sorting.
