TriLine LaserBank

Modular and affordable laser launch for the biosciences

  • Well-suited for TIRF, spinning disk confocal, FRAP, and optogenetics
  • Supports three solid-state lasers
  • Provides the convenience of a customizable, turn-key system at less than half the cost of similar products


The TriLine LaserBank offers users the flexibility of single or multi-mode fibers for a wide variety of research applications. The TriLine LaserBank is a cost-effective, turn-key system that can function as a core component in high-end imaging systems or as a standalone unit in biophysics laboratories. This modular system is easily alignable on-site.

The TriLine LaserBank supports up to three lasers that can be combined into up to three different fibers.  A variety of laser control options are also supported: a host computer via the Cairn TriLine controller; the TriLine LaserBank’s own instrument panel; direct digital or analog modulation; or laser manufacturer’s controller.
