Designed for ART
The LYKOS laser, with its precise targeting features, automated calibration and built-in quality control reporting, provides computer-controlled accuracy and ease-of-use.

The automated initialisation process calibrates the system and can be run any time from the control panel. This initialisation process maps the position of the RED-i target in relation to the entire field of view to optimise accuracy.

Quality control is a vital part of laboratory procedure. The DTS positioning can be easily verified prior to use and the results of the verification saved. With the built-in quality control reporting, you can view the results of the daily verification in both numerical and graphical form. In addition, a Trend Chart lets you see the results over a selected period of time.

The RED-i target locator is visible both on the screen and through the microscope eyepieces. As well as being used to identify and calibrate the laser position under DTS mode, RED-i allows positioning of the cell under the laser beam without looking at the monitor. The target spot always remains in focus and has an adjustable brightness level.
