ALCOR is the most advanced femtosecond fiber laser emitting at 920 nm or 1064 nm specifically designed for Multiphoton microscopy with direct injection within any microscope for large span of applications.
ALCOR series are ideal for two-photon imaging of green fluorophores (GFP) and calcium indicators such as GCaMP (at 920 nm) while being the perfect fit for all red-shifted indicators such as RCaMP, dtTomato, MCherry for two-photon excitation microscopy (at 1 µm).
SPARK LASERS is leading the market since ALCOR offers single or dual wavelengths, advanced features (power modulation, pulse delivery), maintenance-free and best-in-class per its cost of ownership/performance report.
