Cygnium™ G-422 – Optical manipulation module

  • A compact and robust module conceived as a satellite instrument for inverted optical microscopes.
  • Designed for a versatile and flexible optical manipulation of biological samples.
  • Acousto-optic deflection technology allowing simultaneous manipulation of multiple optical traps (>10).
  • Optimized optical design for an excellent trapping efficiency and minimal optical damage.
  • User-friendly control software interface assures straightforward operation for non-experts.
  • Integrated default routines for multiple optical traps operation.
  • “Click and drag” mode for manual generation and operation of optical traps.
  • Integrated routines for micro-rheology experiments.

For a complete workstation integrating optical trapping and force sensing check the SENSOCELL™ and the Lunam™T-40i product pages.
