Perfect for illuminating large volumes of tissue, the Lambda-B fibers make a great addition to optogenetics setups. Their tapered profile and sub-micron tip diameter ensure that tissue displacement and damage is kept to a minimum.

The fibers, provided as implantable stubs, come in a variety of sizes. To find the best fibers for your experiments, choose a Lambda-B fiber with Implant Length=L and an emitting length closest to the size of your area of interest.

The table below provides information on the Lambda-B fibers available. Please note that Fibers come in packs of 5.
