Andor Technology has launched a new tool for its Revolution laser microscopy solutions aimed at live-cell imaging. Revolution Frappa uses computer-steered laser beam to photo-bleach or photo-activate a user-defined region in a live cell specimen.
It uses a dual galvanometer scan head and can be configured in line with a CSU and/or camera. Using the Andor iQ software control, the user can command to bleach or activate regions within defined times limits, using specified laser lines and laser powers.
The laser switching is tightly synchronised using Andor’s laser combiner multi-port switch (MPS).
