By design, smart OBIS lasers bring plug-and-play simplicity to OEM applications, with a wide choice of individual wavelengths. The addition of a remote interface makes their operation fully CDRH-compliant, enabling their use as cost-effective standalone lasers for laboratory, research applications, R&D or instrumentation/system integration.
Applications for OBIS span life sciences, metrology and inspection. Examples include fluorescence-based techniques such as flow cytometry, confocal microscopy and array readers for drug discovery. Here the wide choice of OBIS wavelengths enables optimum excitation of target fluorophores. And, in inspection and machine vision applications, the OBIS wavelength can be chosen to maximize contrast or other parameters.
