Photostimulation and Optogenetics Solutions

Photostimulation and Optogenetics enables precise optical manipulation of complex biological networks. These techniques provide unique insights in fields as diverse as neural mapping, visual regeneration and vascular hypertension. Optogenetics exploits transgenic or transient expression of photosensitive proteins within model organisms, enabling optical perturbation and observation at the organ, tissue and cellular level. 

Mosaic and MicroPoint  products deliver precisely targeted illumination to support these applications and have been proven in the most demanding, optogenetics and photostimulation experiments.
