LYKOS with Dynamic Targeting System™ (DTS)
For non-clinical research use only in USA.
The LYKOS with Dynamic Targeting System (DTS) represents the next generation of clinical lasers for Assisted Reproductive Technology. With advanced targeting features, automated calibration and built-in quality control reporting, LYKOS with DTS provides computer-controlled accuracy and enhanced ease-of-use for embryo biopsy and assisted hatching procedures. With the laser and RED-i built into the LYKOS objective, the LYKOS with DTS offers portability, easy installation, and out-of-the-box compatibility with all current models of inverted microscopes.
Advanced Targeting Features
DTS is a precise targeting and laser steering feature for exact positioning of the laser beam without need for micromanipulation. The DTS feature may be enabled in both Clinical and Validation* Modes. When DTS is enabled, you may choose one of several options to create the laser path:
- Single Shot: Click any single point on the screen and the laser will be applied only to that one spot
- Line / Curve: Draw a straight line of any length and then select and drag to create a curve.
- Freehand: Any freeform path may be drawn by clicking and dragging the mouse pointer.
- Multipoint: Click up to 10 non-connected locations to apply laser. Each spot may have a different laser setting.
- Rectangle: Click and drag to draw a rectangle of any proportion.
Once the path is drawn, it may be selected and repositioned as needed. Either the entire path can be dragged or the beginning and ending points of a line may be adjusted. When the path is selected, the laser settings may be changed and these changes will be immediately reflected in the laser path on the screen. In Clinical Mode, laser settings are restricted to Medium and Low options. In Validation* Mode, the pulse length, power and spacing may be adjusted.
The automated initialization process calibrates the system and can be run at any time from the control panel. This initialization process maps the RED-i target across the entire field of view to optimize accuracy.
Built-in Quality Control Reporting
Quality control is a vital part of laboratory procedure. The DTS positioning can be easily verified before daily use and the results of the verification automatically saved. With the built-in quality control reporting, you can view the results of the daily verification in both numerical and graphical form. In addition, a Trend Chart lets you see the results over a selected period of time.
