The research team developed a minimally modified probe that can be triggered by a broad range of visible light.
The method, called optical coherence refraction tomography, could improve medical images obtained in the OCT imaging industry for medical fields ranging from cardiology to oncology.
These nanoparticles can convert low-energy photons from near-infrared light into higher-energy green light that mammalian eyes can see.
The researchers integrated light manipulation devices called 3D plasmonic nanoarrays onto peelable films that can stick to any surface.
Optotek Medical specializes in developing optical and laser solutions for medical applications.
The fluorescence technique might be useful for quantifying the effects of tumor ablation therapy, where heat is used to destroy cancer cells, or in simply measuring for the presence of cancers.
The deep learning- and photonic time stretch-based approach could make it possible to extract cancer cells from blood immediately after they are detected.
The method combines the protein targeting specificity of commonly available antibodies with a DNA signal-amplification strategy.
The financing will further support MolecuLight's commercial expansion for the growing global demand for its fluorescence imaging device.
The tiny silica 'bottles' are filled with medicine and a temperature-sensitive material to kill malignant cells only in certain parts of the body.
Three studies demonstrate how a label-free 3D microscopy technique enables researchers to observe morphological and chemical alterations of host cells due to the malaria parasite infection.
The optical imaging system cancels the chromatic optical aberrations present in a specific person's eye, allowing for a more accurate assessment of vision and eye health.
The artificial intelligence technology aims to reduce the time required to correctly identify the bacterial species causing an infection to 60 minutes or less onsite.
These anatomical indications add to the previously existing esophageal applications for the OCT imaging system.
BioTek's cell analysis product line includes cell imaging systems, microplate readers, washers, dispensers, automated incubators, and stackers.
