Our OptoFlash spectrometer engines are configurable, fixed-wavelength devices delivering wavelength demultiplexing and detection in a single package. Miniature size coupled with high linearity and low stray light make them the ideal choice for the heart of OEM analytical instruments. They are commonly used in biomedical instrumentation and many other applications where pre-determined specific wavelength detection is required.
Weighing only 30 grams with dimensions of 51mm (L) x 16mm (W) x 25mm (H), OptoFlash delivers the perfect solution for OEM instrument manufacturers seeking to minimize the size and weight of their instruments.
Operating in Low Noise Mode with 0 volt bias, detector dark current of < 10 pA, detector rise time of < 1.2µsec, full-device linearity >OD4, and stray light average >OD5 (OD3.5 minimum) are achieved.
Operating in High Speed Mode with 10 volt bias, detector dark current of < 50 pA, detector rise time of < 0.3µsec are achieved enabling measuring times ranging from 33ms with linearity ≥OD3.5 to 23ms with linearity ≥OD2.5
OptoFlash devices maintain full spectral fidelity over a range of -20° C to +60° C eliminating the need for special cooling components that are sometimes required in instruments where alternate wavelength discrimination methods are used.
OptoFlash devices can be configured with as many as discrete 10 wavelength channels per device. Channels are defined by individual bandpass filters with nominal 8nm bandwidths. For applications where more than 10 channels are required, we design multiple-device configurations with the necessary beam steering optics.
OptoFlash devices can be configured with filters of any wavelenth from UV to 900nm. We offer 46 standard wavelength options, many of which are commonly used in clinical chemistry analyzers. Our standard wavelength offering enables rapid prototying of custom devices, but custom wavelengths are routinely manufactured for special applications.
OptoFlash device are deployed in many parts of the world in clinical diagnostics instruments such as blood-chemistry analyzers manufactured by several well-respected companies in the biomedical instrumentataion market.
