Thanks to the rapid evolution of signal processing and light source technologies, the field of biophotonic imaging has enjoyed spectacular advancements over the last 15 years. A diverse range of imaging techniques is now solidly established in both the laboratory and specialized diagnostics spaces. Yet, the enabling instrumentation remains bulky, complex, costly and difficult to operate. The trend now is to simplify and miniaturize these systems and to combine complementary imaging modalities into single instruments. The drive towards smaller and more highly integrated systems hinges on progress in four key areas: photodetection, light sources, sample handling, and optics and filters.
Tight integration and miniaturization of these elements will lift advanced bioimaging out of the specialized research environment into clinical and point-of-care settings. SensL’s SiPM sensors address the challenge of integrating single-photon detection and timing capabilities both at desktop and MeMs scale instrumentation.
