Breakthrough Sensor for PCR at Point-of-CareBy Ocean Insight
As point-of-care (POC) molecular diagnostics transform medicine by bringing sophisticated diagnostic testing to the patient, the need for compact optical and detection technologies is increasing. Highly integrated multispectral sensors fill this niche well, reducing the complexity, footprint, and cost of instrumentation significantly.
In contrast to the full spectrum acquired by a spectrometer, a multispectral sensor collects data only at the wavelength bands of most interest for the application. By integrating filtering and detection into monolithic elements in an array of up to 8 channels, the breakthrough PixelSensor™ multispectral sensor offers even greater multispectral detection efficiency in a package the size of a fingernail.
