Lumany LLC, a leading developer of innovative light sources for biomedical and specialty applications, announced today the release of the world’s first commercially available 607nm orange laser for life science applications. The 607nm laser (LM-607-020) utilizes Lumany’s patent protected innovative technology to emit a diffraction limited, single mode beam that is particularly useful for flow cytometry, confocal microscopy, DNA sequencing, optogenetics, and holography and particle analysis.
“This is an exciting frontier for Lumany,” said Robert Bagby, Chairman of Lumany. “Orange light is the last major excitation void in life science applications.” With no commercial visible laser available between 595 and 630nm, Lumany’s newly announced orange laser addresses that excitation void by operating at a fixed 607nm wavelength, enabling researchers to probe numerous red fluorescent proteins which are optimally excited at this wavelength. “Red fluorescent proteins are critical in life science applications because of their ability to produce brighter images with better contrast, along with more effective light penetration for deep imaging,” Bagby later added.
Lumany’s LM-607-020 delivers 20 milliwatts of optical power with excellent beam quality and reliability, and can be utilized as a standalone laser source or integrated seamlessly into life science instruments.
