SAN DIEGO, Aug. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Arryx, Inc., a Haemonetics(R)
Company, and Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc. (BNS) today announced the
HOTkit(TM) product line. The new HOTkit products provide researchers the
core high-performance building blocks for creating their own Holographic
Optical Trapping (HOT) configurations.
Previous HOT products, exclusively available from Arryx, delivered
stand-alone, turnkey solutions for manipulating, measuring and assembling
microscopic and nanoscopic organisms and particles studied in biology,
chemistry, physics, engineering and nanotechnology. The HOTkit product line
enables researchers to integrate HOT into their existing laboratory
instrumentation. Each HOTkit product includes a BNS spatial light modulator
(SLM) for creating dynamic holograms and Arryx software that implements
high-speed calculations for controlling the SLM and other instrumentation.
"We're excited to deliver this flexible and cost-effective solution to
the research community," said Dan Mueth, Chief Technical Officer of Arryx.
"The HOTkit products deliver the highest available HOT performance in a
format that will quickly enable novel research."
"BNS has deep expertise in the hardware systems for projecting laser
light. Providing this hardware through the HOTkit product line will
significantly ease integration of SLMs into research programs thereby
accelerating the pace of micro- and nanotech investigations," states Steve
Serati, CEO of Boulder Nonlinear Systems.
Arryx, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Haemonetics Corporation,
implements its proprietary holographic optical trapping (HOT) technology
for optically controlled measurement, manipulation and manufacturing of
materials in health, agriculture, materials science and other fields.
