(pronounced zI-" clOn)
The XYClone laser permits non-contact ablation of targeted membranes or structures. The XYClone laser module consists of a high power, Class 1, 1460 nm infrared laser integrated with a specially designed objective that functions in both visible and near infrared wavelengths. Compatible with most inverted microscopes, the XYClone laser attaches to the turret just like a typical objective and allows full use of all the microscopes standard features, such as fluorescence and Hoffman imaging. In addition, the laser is factory-aligned and locked in place to ensure safe ablation.
