Future-Proof Point-of-Care Instruments with Integrated Optical Receivers (Download)

July 26, 2023

Read this article online.

In vitro diagnostic (IVD) systems rely on optical receiver techniques to achieve highly sensitive and specific results. Established techniques such as ELISA and PCR utilize a fluorescence optical receive chain to perform diagnostic tests. It’s no surprise, then, that the point-of-care (PoC) market has also adopted optical receivers as a powerful tool in creating a system thats accurate, flexible, and achieves a fast time to result.

In a fluorescence-based IVD test, a sample containing fluorescent labels is excited with the light of a specific wavelength. If the sample contains the analyte of interest, the fluorescent labels react to the excitation by emitting a light of a lower energy level.
