  • Laser and RED-i target locator built into 40x or 20x objective
  • High image quality
  • Enhanced UV transmission, compatible with stains such as DAPI, Hoechst, and others
  • Improved working distance – use with or without glass heater
  • No laser alignment needed
  • Similar in size to standard objectives
  • Compatible with all major microscope brands, including newer and upright models

The XYRCOS laser permits non-contact ablation of targeted membranes or structures. The XYRCOS laser module consists of a high power, Class 1, 1460 nm infrared laser plus RED-i target locator integrated into a 40x or 20x objective. Compatible with most inverted microscopes, the XYRCOS laser attaches to the turret just like a typical objective and allows full use of all the microscopes standard features, such as fluorescence and Hoffman imaging. In addition, the laser is factory-aligned and locked in place to ensure safe ablation.

XYCROS Components

Integrated Class I Laser (1460 nm, 300mW) and 40x or 20x Objective

The XYCROS laser-objective is a compact, portable unit that installs on all current and older models of inverted microscopes. The LWD 40x objective is specially designed and manufactured according to high quality HTR specifications. It is constructed to have high transmission in the infrared at l = 1460 NM, as well as in the visible. The XYCROSsystem includes the laser-objective, laser controller and laser cable.

RMS ThreadAdapters

XYRCOS Turret Adapters

A set of three RMS thread adapters is included with each XYCROS. These adapters allow you install the XYCROS on any inverted microscope.

XYCROS Laser Software

XYClone Software

Includes adjustable laser power and pulse settings and image capture (JPG, TIF, BMP) with manual and automatic filing naming abilities. See XYClone and XYRCOS Software for included features.

Color Camera and C-Mount Adapter

Watec Analog Camera Digital Camera
Analog Camera Digital Camera

Choose between either an analog or digital (USB 2.0) color camera. All systems also come with the appropriate c-mount adapter for your microscope.

Footswitch for Hands-free Firing


When working with micromanipulators, the XYClone allows you to work in “hands-free” mode by using the optional foot switch to fire the laser. Simply use the manipulators to position the embryo to the target and press the foot switch to fire the laser. Your micromanipulation proceeds rapidly and the time the embryo spends on the microscope stage is minimized.

High Performance Computer System

The XYCROS comes with your choice of a desktop or laptop computer.
