Release of Caged Calcium in Illuminated Cell

This video shows the release of caged calcium in Flou-4 (calcium dye) using Andor’s Mosaic along with a 405 nm high-power laser diode.

The increase of fluorescence indicates calcium release in the illuminated cell. The images were captured in real time using the confocal microscope. Uncaging reveals the role of calcium in cell cycle progression.

Run Time – 0:15sec

Active Illumination: Uncaging - Calcium Release - Andor Technology
