This technology uses a light emitting diode (LED) to achieve the same imaging results as a laser source.
Photo Multiplier System using High Power, Pure Sinusoidal LED Driver with Temperature Stabilization Feedback
Case ID: UA16-209
This patented technology uses a light emitting diode (LED) to achieve the same imaging results as a laser source, without damaging the tissues.
Laser sources are the current standard in fluorescent imaging techniques, but lasers can damage tissue samples over time. This technology is based on a technique used in high energy physics for scintillation counting, which optimizes the transient recording of fluorescence using the gating paradigm of photomultiplier tubes (PMT) for use in biology. Therefore, this technology is powerful enough to accomplish what current laser excitation can, without the tissue damage over time.
