Expanding further into image-guided therapy market, Philips will acquire Volcano

Royal Philips and Volcano Corp., which develops and manufactures catheter-based imaging and measurement solutions for cardiovascular applications, have entered into a definitive agreement in which Philips will acquire Volcano for $1 billion.

Global medical aesthetic devices market to reach $6.2B by 2019, says new report

Global medical aesthetic devices market to reach $6.2B by 2019, says new report

In a new report, BCC Research has revealed that the growing expansion of the middle classes in developing economies, shifts in cultural outlooks for developed economies, and regulatory actions in the U.S. have led to a rapidly changing global market for medical aesthetic devices.

LED light engines for light guide illuminators by Innovations in Optics

LumiBright Model 2400B-400-W and 2400B-500-W high-power white LED light engines from Innovations in Optics couple directly to liquid light guides and fiber bundles with no additional optics, delivering up to 4000 lumens into the light guide.

Hat-like molecular cages allow light activation of signaling peptides in vivo

To transport biomaterials that contain peptide-signaling molecules into living animals, Georgia Tech researchers and colleagues used hat-like molecular cages to cover binding sites on the peptides that are normally recognized by cell receptors. When activated by ultraviolet (UV) light, the cages detach and reveal the peptides in vivo.

BioLight enters into agreement to distribute ophthalmology laser in Asia

BioLight enters into agreement to distribute ophthalmology laser in Asia

BioLight Life Sciences Investments has signed an exclusive distribution agreement for sales and marketing of IOPtima's IOPtiMate ophthalmology laser system in Hong Kong and Macao.

Molecules of green and red fluorescent proteins, which self-assemble into ring-shaped structures under the right conditions, can be stimulated to emit laser light

Solid-state proteins can boost fluorescent protein-based lasers' intensity

A research team has shown that using fluorescent proteins in a solid form rather than in solution greatly increases the intensity of light produced, an accomplishment that could someday lead to biocompatible lasers that are implantable for drug delivery, among other utilities.

Professor Martin Gruebele led a team that developed a way to watch how unfolded proteins move through a cell using fluorescence microscopy and three-dimensional diffusion modeling

Fluorescence microscopy shows how unfolded proteins move in the cell

Using a fluorescence microscopy method, a team of researchers was able to track how an unfolded protein diffuses in a cell.

Infraredx's TVC Imaging System, a dual-modality imaging system that can identify lipid-core plaques using near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS)

Near-infrared spectroscopy could help predict future cardiovascular events risk

In a new study, Infraredx evaluated the ability of intravascular near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) to identify lipid core-containing plaques, which are believed to be implicated in most heart attacks, as a means to predict the risk of future major adverse cardiac and cerebrovascular events (MACCE).

Optical microscopy technique discovers that cell division induces tissue ordering

Optical microscopy technique discovers that cell division induces tissue ordering

Using an optical microscopy technique, a team of researchers at the Niels Bohr Institute has investigated the dynamics of new cell formation in a layer of endothelial cells where there was no liquid flowing over.

Broadband supercontinuum laser by PicoQuant

The Solea White supercontinuum laser from PicoQuant emits a broadband supercontinuum output between 480 and 700 nm from a polarization-maintaining singlemode fiber with FC/PC connector.
