Fiber Optics in Life Science

Fiber optics in life science is much more than just light sources and image guides.

The optical fiber enables distributed chemical sensing for environmental monitoring,  portable and precise pH-sensing, process monitoring to control spills and exhausts, laser sources and systems for microscopy, and capillaries for sampling and analysis, to mention a few competitive solutions that are commercially available today.

Novel technologies include areas such as lab-in-a-fiber (optofluidics) and miniaturized technologies for advanced multilumen.
