Reduce Damage from Long-Term Brillouin Imaging of Live Cells

Reduce Damage from Long-Term Brillouin Imaging of Live Cells

Recent data from Maryland has shown that using a 660 nm wavelength laser can reduce absorption-mediated damage when performing long-term Brillouin imaging of live cells. The latest research, which uses the torus 660 nm and the torus 532 nm single longitudinal wave lasers by Laser Quantum, demonstrates that live cell imaging may be more efficient at 660 nm. The 660 nm incidental light is 80 times less susceptible by the live cells compared to 532 nm. The research determines that the Brillouin imaging of cells is improved with 660 nm and gives improved accuracy, higher speeds, or larger fields and denser sampling.
