MICRO and MICRO+ Family

Enhance patient alignment workflow and accuracy for diagnostic imaging and radiotherapy.

  • Compact design, powerful performance
  • Optimal accuracy and efficiency
  • Available in red, green or blue


MICRO+: Remote Adjustable Fixed Lasers

The MICRO+ fixed laser system offers the latest technology in remote controlled lasers for patient alignment. The elegant design of the remote allows 12 possible adjustments from only 4 intuitive controls. Accuracy of 0.15 mm ensures optimal laser positioning, every time.

With embedded Bluetooth technology, the MICRO+ system enables staff to move freely as they work. There is no need to stop and point the remote at the laser in order to make adjustments.

Easy Implementation

This elegant, all-in-one system does not have additional costs or external receivers to consider. Additional smart design touches include backlighting on the remote for use in dark rooms and a remote locator feature for fast finding in case of misplacement. With OneTouch™ control of any laser, you can increase efficiency at every step.

Reliability and Ease of Use

Dr. Yu-Wen Chang recently oversaw the installation of an advanced radiotherapy TrueBeam® System with a Gammex MICRO+™ Patient Alignment system with 4 green lasers.

“I chose the MICRO+ system from Gammex, because the LAP laser system gave me trouble in the past. I had reliability issues with the remote control system on the pendant, and the remote control itself was not easy to use even with the Operators Manual open in front of me. Most importantly though, I found the Gammex laser to be more precise than LAP.”

MICRO+ MR: Fixed Laser Systems for MR Simulation & MR Linacs

Zero Interference™ for MR-Simulation and MR-Guided Radiotherapy

The MICRO+ MR fixed laser system is the patient alignment solution for any MR environment, up to 3 Tesla. System design allows power to pass through a noise filter prior to connecting with each unit, retaining Zero Interference with MR image quality.

The elegant Bluetooth-enabled remote control, with wrist strap, enables staff to move freely as they work -- and make up to 12 possible adjustments with ease. There is no need to stop and point the remote at the laser to make adjustments. Accuracy of 0.15 mm helps ensure optimal laser positioning, every time.

Additional smart design touches — such as backlighting on the remote for use in dark rooms and a remote locator feature for fast finding in case of misplacement — increase efficiency at every step.

Easy Implementation

MICRO+ MR lasers mount to the wall and ceiling, keeping MR rooms organized, with a clear path for patient transport and injector equipment.

Zero Interference System Offerings

MICRO+ MR systems are available as a 3-unit or 4-unit offering, each with three color options: red, green, or blue. All systems include a power supply designed to convert AC to DC outside of the Faraday cage, cable/connectors to run DC power through the Filter Panel before entering the MR environment, and a Junction Box to distribute DC power to each individual laser unit.

Filter Panel Interface - Planning

Power going into an MR suite is filtered for low frequency noise at the penetration panel. Each site should work with their RF shield designer to ensure a filtered 9-pin D-sub connection is available for lasers at the Penetration Panel. MICRO+ MR includes D-sub connectors to field terminate cables that will pass power through the Panel. Contact your RF shield designer to ensure lasers are included in the site plan.
