II-VI introduces 405nm laser for biomedical instruments

Engineered materials and optoelectronic component maker II-VI Inc of Saxonburg, PA, USA has extended its compact, low-noise QOMO laser series for analytical instruments in life sciences, including for flow cytometers, confocal microscopes and biomedical imaging applications.

Now available at 405nm in addition to the existing laser wavelengths of 488, 638 and 660nm, the extremely stable, low-noise optical output power of the QOMO laser enhances the measurement sensitivity of next-generation flow cytometers, enabling greater accuracy and faster measurements.

“Our lasers enable high measurement sensitivity in flow cytometers, which is critical to accurately identify residual traces of target cells or markers,” says Chris Koeppen, VP of the II-VI Industrial Laser Group. “This laser leverages II-VI’s well-established hardware and software platform with decades of field-proven reliability in optical networks.”

The firm says that its QOMO laser is cost effective due to its vertical integration of components manufactured in-house, including semiconductor lasers, optics and thermo-electric coolers. The laser spot size and beam geometry can be configured to match a wide variety of analytical instrument designs and can achieve up to 150mW of output power.

II-VI’s portfolio of products for flow cytometry includes optics and filters for fluorescence spectroscopy in the visible and ultraviolet wavelength ranges, as well as sheath cells and precision air and fluid temperature control systems based on thermo-electric coolers.

II-VI is showcasing its portfolio of engineered materials, lasers and optics for materials processing, life sciences, consumer electronics and automotive applications at the following conferences:

  • SPIE BIOS Expo 2019 (booth #8543) in San Francisco, CA (2-3 February), on biomedical optics;
  • SPIE Photonics West 2019 (booth #1840) in San Francisco, CA (5-7 February) on photonics; and
  • EALA - European Automotive Laser Applications 2019 (booth #3) in Bad Nauheim, Germany (12-13 February) on laser-based processes for future car body productions.
