Biotechnology

nanoplus applications in biotechnology

nanoplus lasers at wavelengths from the visible to MIR spectral range can be used in a wide variety of biological and biotechnological applications including

  • flow cytometry
  • optogenetics
  • microscopy

Non-destructive food quality control is another application area, i.e. to monitor the atmosphere in which food is stored or the shelf life of soft drinks.

Other bio- applications include environmental biotechnology for the detection of dangerous gases emanating from wastes during deposition and clean up-processes.

Plasmon
Chemical sensing using surface plasmon polariton

A 3.6 µm ICL is used to enhance the reading of the surface plasmon polariton effect.

C2H6 & C2H2
Monitoring of breath gas: C2H6 and C2H2

Medical breath analysis considers ethane and acetelyne as a biomarkers for asthma, schizophrenia or lung cancer. The research field of breath analysis uses methane as a biomarker for intestinal problems.
