LASU - Laser Applied Stimulation and Uncaging
Scientifica LASU - Optogenetics, PhotoStimulation and Uncaging System
Developed with VU University Amsterdam, the LASU (Laser Applied Stimulation and Uncaging) system is ideal for researchers engaging in optogenetics, uncaging or other photostimulation experiments.
Accurate and repeatable
The laser spot positioning is accurate and repeatable enabling fast experimental manipulation of biological systems.
The Galvo mirror driven hardware and optical components are based on the Scientifica award-winning two-photon system giving you complete confidence when choosing LASU
The LASU system fits directly onto the Scientifica upright SliceScope microscope making it an easy upgrade to existing rigs.
Free space launched or fibre guided laser delivery
The choice either fibre or free-space launch optics means that you can choose which laser delivery method best suits your experimental setup.
Choice of laser wavelengths
LASU is able to deliver multiple laser wavelengths with a spot smaller than 2 microns (depending on the objective used). This provides greater experimental control than 'full field' stimulation.
