Laser ablation module for MuVi-SPIM has been developed and installed in Dr. Maizel’s lab, Center for Organismal Studies, Heidelberg University. A 200 femtosecond- pulsed 2-photon laser tuned at 1040nm is coupled into MuVi-SPIM for ablation purpose on specific regions of interests.
Arabidopsis thaliana is used in Dr. Maizel’s research to study the development of its root system, in particular the formation of the lateral roots. The laser ablation module provides controlled stimulation and suppression of developmental programs. There are 3 MuVi-SPIM systems installed in Dr. Maizel’s lab for his advanced plant researches.
Feel free to contact us for more technical details of the laser ablation module.
