Optogenetics Lasers

Optogenetics Lasers Overview

 

Optogenetics is a biological technique that uses light to control cells in living tissue, typically neurons.  These neurons have been genetically modified to express light-sensitive ion channels, allowing researchers to correlate physical responses with individual neurons. Optogenetics while still a relatively new method, has already shown incites into several neurological and psychiatric disorders.  While very little optical power is needed, optogenetics lasers are still the preferred delivery method because of their ability to be focused and targeted to specific areas of the brain.  Additionally, several wavelengths in the near-infrared region allow optogenetics lasers to be transmitted through bone and tissue eliminating the need for opening the skull.  On this page, you will find a list of all of the full range of optogenetic lasers we offer at RPMC.

RPMC has years of experience supporting Optogenetics applications, helping industry professionals select the right tool for the job.
