Multi-Wavelength Laser Engine for OEM Life Sciences Instrumentation

The compact one-box source integrates the lasers, electronic control and beam conditioning optics are all completely integrated in a single package. It features a single controller board, common power and RS232/USB connections and a single I/O connector. Flexibility and utility are further enhanced by providing independent customer adjustment of the pointing and focus of each wavelength, allowing the TEM00 outputs to be aligned and positioned as needed for each specific instrument.

The device is based on the proven “OBIS” plug and play smart platform. It is available in two standard formats – a three-channel version with outputs at 405, 488 and 640 nm; and a four-channel engine that also includes 561 nm, with 50 mW or 100 mW output power per wavelength. Beam parameters are particularly well-suited to flow cytometry, suiting cell analysis as well as the higher powers needed for cell sorting. In addition, patent-pending optical accessories are available that convert the output into the focused, elliptical spots typically needed for flow cytometry.

The light engine is targeted at instrument manufacturers that need to incorporate multiple lasers together with their associated infrastructure and beam delivery. It offers a uniquely cost-effective solution that reduces development time and costs. Custom beam configurations and alternative wavelength combinations are also available for multi-unit orders.
