Optogenetics and Uncaging


The LASU (Laser Applied Stimulation and Uncaging) system by our partner Scientifica Ltd. is perfect for users engaging in optogenetics, uncaging or other photostimulation experiments.

The laser spot positioning is accurate and repeatable enabling fast experimental manipulation of biological systems.

Based on the highly successful design of Scientifica's award-winning Multiphoton Imaging System, LASU uses 'Galvo' mirrors for fast, accurate and repeatable laser spot positioning. The wide range of laser modules means you can select one or more wavelengths and add to these as your needs, and the range of 'opsins', develop.
