Blood analysis with optical fiber-assemblies
SEDI-ATI designs customer-specific fiber-assembly solutions for blood analysis applications using fluorescence spectroscopy.
Using fiber optics for blood test analysis
Blood tests can help detect potential health disorders and diagnose diseases.
Fiber optics are ideal to perform fluorescence spectroscopy analysis. They allow to illuminate a sample of blood at a defined wavelength, and to collect the fluorescence emitted as a reaction to the excitation caused by the incoming light. The emitted fluorescence is relevant of the composition of the target, which allows to identify the nature of the target.
SEDI-ATI’s octopuses assemblies
SEDI-ATI has been involved in this field for decades. We supply industry leaders with fiber optic assemblies based on customer specifications.
These fibre assemblies can be octopuses consisting of a coherent or non-coherent arrangement of several fibres arranged in a linear, circular or matrix fashion at one end of the octopus, and a fanout of several individual fibres at the other end. There are then as many samples that can be tested simultaneously as there are channels (legs) available on the octopus.
Core diameters ranging from 50 µm to 1000 µm
In the case of a spectrometric analysis, all the fibers are arranged in a coherent and linear pattern to be aligned with the spectrophotometer entrance slit.
Such arrangements can include fibers with core diameters ranging from 50 µm to 1000 µm and lengths up to 20 m.
