Spectroscopy for Your Health

Optical Sensing Tools for Medical Diagnostics

Dental Curing Light Measurement

Ocean Optics provides spectrometersembedded systemsoptical sensors and other tools to solve research, development and point-of-care diagnostics measurement challenges. Setups can be configured for lab, industry and OEM requirements, with applications ranging from blood analysis and biological samples testing to cancer detection and tissue analysis.

Our customers have utilized spectroscopy to take on applications including health issues associated with aging populations, the emergence of more virulent diseases, and the consequences of environmental toxins and food contamination.

Why Choose Ocean Optics?

Optical sensing techniques like spectroscopy are well suited for health-related measurement challenges, where non-invasive and in vitro analyses are critical for rapid and accurate diagnoses. Ocean Optics offers UV-Vis, NIR and Raman spectroscopy options distinguished by several key features:

Small footprint – standard and OEM units small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, handheld Raman instruments and more

Modular components – customized systems readily configured for health and medical applications of all types

Portable design – miniature, modular spectrometers and fiber optic accessories bring the measurement to the sample

Easily embeddable – integration options from off-the-shelf and customized spectrometers and accessories to drop-in subsystems and turnkey solutions

Great reliability – more than 250,000 spectrometers in the field, enabling thousands of applications across dozens of industries and research disciplines
