Spectra-Physics, a Newport Corporation brand, introduces
InSight DeepSee, an extraordinary new ultrafast laser system that takes
multiphoton imaging to new depths. Based on a novel proprietary technology, the
new InSight DeepSee delivers nearly double the tuning range of existing
ultrafast lasers and provides seamless access to long infrared wavelengths for deepest
in vivo imaging. Robust and fully automated, InSight DeepSee provides easy-to-use,
hands-off operation, freeing users to focus on their critical research.
“InSight DeepSee incorporates our most advanced technology
in a turn-key system with revolutionary performance,” said Dave Allen, general
manager and vice president for Spectra-Physics. “This extraordinary laser
redefines multiphoton imaging by enabling users to readily image at dramatically
InSight DeepSee features an unprecedented 680 to 1300nm
continuous tuning from a single source, short 100fs pulse widths and highest
peak power levels into the infrared where imaging penetration depth is
maximized. Spectra-Physics’ integrated, patent-pending DeepSee, the industry-standard
dispersion pre-compensator, delivers the short pulses through a microscope to
the sample for maximum fluorescence. A dual wavelength option is available for
advanced imaging techniques, including uncaging, coherent anti-Stokes Raman
scattering (CARS) imaging, and multi-modal imaging.
This fully-automated ultrafast laser can be seamlessly tuned,
with the click of a mouse, to any wavelength within seconds. The laser system
also has ideal beam characteristics optimized for multiphoton imaging. InSight
DeepSee is designed, built and tested to stringent quality standards for
hands-free, reliable operation.
