abstract

Among the trends redefining 21st century biomedical diagnostics and therapeutics are the advent of low-cost portable analyzers. Because light is a powerful tool in many of today's most widely used life science instruments, high intensity, low cost light engines are essential to the design and proliferation of the newest bioanalytical instruments, medical devices and miniaturized analyzers. The development of new light technology represents a critical technical hurdle in the realization of point-of-care analysis. Lumencor has developed an inexpensive lighting solution, uniquely well suited to the production of safe, effective and commercially viable life science tools and biomedical devices. Lumencor's proprietary, solid-state light engine provides powerful, pure, stable, inexpensive light across the UV-Vis- NIR. Light engines are designed to directly replace the entire configuration of light management components with a single, simple unit. Power, spectral breadth and purity, stability and reliability data will demonstrate the advantages of these light engines for today's bioanalytical needs. Performance and cost analyses will be compared to traditional optical subsystems based on lamps, lasers and LEDs with respect to their suitability as sources for biomedical applications, implementation for development/evaluation of novel measurement tools and overall superior reliability. Next generation products based on such sources will be described to fulfill the demand for portable, hand-held analyzers and affordable devices with highly integrated light sources. A four color violet/cyan/green/red product will be demonstrated. A variety of multicolor prototypes, their spectral outputs and facile modulation will be discussed and their performance capabilities disclosed.
