In the bioinstrumentation market, our solid-state and semiconductor lasers are included in systems designed for flow cytometry and drug discovery. Our OPSL technology provides access to virtually any wavelength which is key to fluorescence based applications. Our Sapphire, Compass and CUBE laser solutions advance the dynamic range of DNA sequencing and drug discovery to support both research to identify genes related to diseases, as well as the development of next generation pharmaceuticals.
In medical applications, our laser solutions cover diagnostics and treatment. In ophthalmology, retina scanning enables early diagnosis of diseases such as diabetes. Our Excimer lasers are key to vision correcting LASIK procedures while the higher power versions of our OPSLs treat age related macular degeneration (AMD) through photocoagulation. Our GEM series CO2 lasers, widely used in skin resurfacing and aesthetic applications, round out our medical applications portfolio.
In the growing field of forensics, our compact solid-state TracER laser system is based on our OPSL technology, and directly addresses the needs of large-scale criminal investigation organizations by providing a superior combination of high brightness and portability to bear on the most difficult forensic analysis.
