The InSight DeepSee ultrafast laser offers 680 to 1300 nm continuous tuning from a single source, 100 fs pulse widths and peak power levels into the infrared for multiphoton, deep tissue imaging. A dual-wavelength option for uncaging, coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (CARS) imaging, and multimodal imaging is also available.

The iPixel CO2 and iPixelEr pixel modules for aesthetic fractional laser resurfacing feature the company’s roller technology, which allows the laser to glide along skin to deliver ablative treatment in less time. The modules pulse energy into the thermal ablative processes while channeled through one row of seven pixels to enable removal of fine lines, wrinkles and post-acne scars.

Tunable bandpass filters
The VersaChrome tunable bandpass filters offer tunability over wavelengths from 340 to 800 nm by adjusting the angle of incidence without changing spectral performance. The filters are ideal for fluorescence microscopy, FURA2 dual-wavelength excitation, imaging, and quantitation applications; hyperspectral imaging, high-throughput spectroscopy and fiber-optic telecommunications systems.

Remote focus control
The H160ZFP foot pedal remote focus control systems include a control box with on/off switch, speed control, a drive motor, foot pedals and a focus sleeve, and are compatible with new or existing microscopes with coaxial coarse and fine focus. Their ergonomics and hands-free operation reduce the risk of repetitive stress injures while providing quick and precise focus control at various speeds.
