- Features & Benefits
Dynamic Moveable Laser
XYRCOS® DTS provides computer-controlled accuracy and advanced targeting features to assist with easier cell removal.
Select different laser paths to match the shape of the zona’s outer layer and perform fast and easy cell separation!
- Single shot: click any single point on screen to fire.
- Line / curve: draw a straight line of any length and then select and drag to create a curve.
- Freehand: draw any freeform path by clicking and dragging.
- Multipoint: click up to 25 non-connected locations to apply laser. Each point may have a different laser setting.
- Rectangle: click and drag to draw a rectangle of any proportion.
- Circular Arc: A circle arc (part or segment of the circumference of a circle) may be drawn and edited as needed.
We also offer fixed laser systems but these lasers do not offer beam steering mechanisms and multiple laser paths. The XYRCOS is equipped with the RED-i target locator visible through the microscope eyepieces and staccato mode for firing in rapid succession. The legacy XYClone is an alternative laser without RED-i or staccato features.
