Optomechanical probe positioners allow more comprehensive study of biological samples.
This trending technology is playing a critical, unheralded role in life science research.
The IS-OGP, a modular subassembly from Siskiyou, collimates light from an input single-mode fiber and directs it anywhere in the field of view of an upright microscope via a 45° beamsplitter. The light can be focused to an adjustable-diameter spot, the position of which is precisely located or scanned via mechanical (differential screw) or automated actuators.
