Biotechnology & Medical Videos

  1. Multi-Spectral Imaging And Sensing
    2/23/2016

    Marco Snikkers wrapped up our Photonics West 2016 coverage by introducing us to a pixel sensor that acts as an 8-channel spectrometer for biomedical, fluorescence marking, and colorimeter applications, as well as a multi-spectral camera that can monitor specific wavelengths in real-time.

  2. Machine Vision, POC Medical Instruments, Non-Dispersive IR, & Photo-Acoustic Spectroscopy Filters
    2/18/2016

    This year at Photonics West, Jason Palidwar with Iridian Spectral Technologies gave us insight into the three optical filtering solutions his company is focusing on in 2016.

  3. Gooch & Housego Introduces The New Fiber-QTM Fiber Coupled Modulators
    8/27/2015

    The new Fiber-QTM Fiber is a fiber coupled acousto-optic modulator (FCAOM) solution for fiber laser modulation and frequency shifting. These devices can directly control the timing, intensity, and temporal characteristics of the active output from a fiber laser, offering a wider variety of pulse shapes.

  4. Precision Thermal Imaging Solutions
    2/11/2015

    At this year’s exhibition, Leonardo DRS’ business development director, Doug VanDover, introduced us to the newest entry in the Tamarisk thermal IR camera family — the Tamarisk precision series

  5. Illumination/Vision System Solutions For Medical Devices
    2/10/2015

    This year at Photonics West, we had the pleasure of speaking with both Chuck Gerlowski and Richard Cyr of Precision Optics Corporation. Watch the video for information on their micro-optics capabilities, micro-optic components, sub-assemblies, and finished devices.

  6. Lenses And Prisms In Medical Devices For Imaging And Illumination
    6/18/2014

    On the last day of the MD&M East exhibition, Chuck Gerlowski with Precision Optics Corporation discussed their micro lenses, micro prisms, and more. These components can be used to design CMOS sensors for imaging systems and illumination systems in medical devices.

  7. Thermal Cameras For Even The Most Demanding SWaP Restrictions
    5/8/2014

    Jay Schell of Leonardo DRS tells us about the unique features of the Tamarisk thermal cameras, and how they're used in applications involving integration into UAVs, medical imaging equipment, analytic devices, man-portable imaging devices, robotic ground vehicles, unmanned sensors, security and surveillance, and more.

  8. Measure Precision Surfaces Of Implantable Medical Devices
    5/5/2014

    In this video, Justin Turner from Zygo introduces the ZeGage optical profiler. The system measures precision surfaces of implantable medical devices that require non-contact metrology, such as bone screws and dental implants. 

  9. Very Small Optics And Assemblies For Defense And Medical Applications
    2/10/2014

    In this video, Precision Optics Corp president Joe Forkey gives us a brief overview of his company and then gives us a closer look at some of the things they featured at their Photonics West booth. 

  10. OEM Medical Device Assembly-3D Dental Imaging
    1/9/2014

    This video gives insight on a dental medical device’s journey from the prototype phase to production. The device needed to be small enough to image rear teeth, robust enough to replace physical impressions, and had to make precision measurements for prosthetics. The process involved complex optics, steps to ensure hygienic sterilization, high resolution 3D imaging, and more. Download the video to see how it was done.
