Introducing MicroPoint 4 - A Powerful Tool for Photostimulation

In this webinar, Dr Mark Browne, Microscopy Systems Director at Andor will introduce MicroPoint 4, with all-new smart controller, millisecond beam positioning and new solid state laser options capabilities are significantly enhanced. The fiber spot adapter (FSA), delivers continuous wave (cw) laser for bleaching and photo-activation of fluorescent proteins. And coming soon, is a new ultra-compact YAG laser, we call Pico: with 5 kHz rep rate, 1 ns pulse width and emission at 355 and 532 nm, Pico delivers kW peak-power and is ideal for microsurgery, DNA damage and uncaging.

Mark Browne Director of Microscopy Systems has contributed to many significant developments, managing the spinning disk confocal and photostimulation portfolios. Educated at Edinburgh and Reading Universities, Mark had a successful academic career, primarily at University of Manchester, where he established a research group in optical imaging and image processing. He was co-founder of Kinetic Imaging Limited in 1990, which was acquired in 2004 by Andor. Since the acquisition, he has contributed to R&D and Product Management in microscopy and imaging software.
