We routinely develop optical architectures and integrate those designs into optical systems for point of care and diagnostic instruments that rely on an optical method for detecting a positive or negative result.
Our experience in optical systems design includes:
- Microscopy and microscope design
- Flow cytometry
- Low light level detection
- Autofocus systems
We have dedicated optics facilities for the development and testing of optics systems. These include specialty laboratory spaces, standard and specialized tools for measurement, simulation of expected light emissions, emulation of detector output for electronics optimization, and signal processing development.
Our extensive knowledge has led to the design of multiple generations of optical systems, including modular fluorimeter systems, and systems with high sensitivity and large dynamic ranges using low cost uncooled photodetector technology. This type of experience has allowed us to create preconfigured templates that address common and application-specific risks leading to more rapid development times.
