Your focus is on building compelling systems for end users in healthcare or research. At Phoseon Technology's Life Sciences group, we understand your applications and engineer custom solutions to fit your needs. Phoseon Life Sciences is dedicated to develop systems that use light to help you enhance the care of patients or speed the detection of disease.
UV-C light is also known as “germicidal UV” for its effectiveness in disinfection. While particular wavelengths affect different bonds within biological molecules, both nucleotides and proteins can be modified by deep ultraviolet light. Thus, both microorganisms and biological material can be inactivated with the right dosage of light.
Ultraviolet light is already used in analytical instruments for high-sensitivity detection of compounds in biological and chemical samples. LEDs offer a new generation of molecular detection capability in high performance chromatography and other analytical instruments by allowing simpler, smaller, and more powerful detector systems.
While most fluorescent imaging uses exogenous dyes or markers to highlight tissue, cellular, or subcellular structures, many intrinsic compounds fluoresce under excitation with the right wavelength. Using ultraviolet light, the intrinsic fluorescence of subcellular proteins can be used to distinguish different tissue and cellular properties.
