Biomedical spectroscopy applications can be some of the most demanding in terms of technical specifications, but Avantes has a proven track record of success with such applications in laboratory and clinical environments. Over the past 25 years, we have provided instrumentation for non-invasive and invasive spectroscopy analysis for a variety of life science customers.
Avantes spectrometers are used to measure blood gas parameters such as hemoglobin, carboxyhemoglobin, bilirubin, and others for co-oximetry, where Avantes OEM spectrometers (AvaSpec-ULS2048L-USB2 and AvaSpec-ULS2048CL-EVO) are integrated into clinical analyzers. Pulse oximetry is another technique where Avantes instruments have been successfully implemented. Avantes AvaSpec-HS2048XL-EVO is being used to perform high-speed fluorescence measurements during needle biopsies as well as for diffuse reflection measurements to support endoscopy and deep tissue mass detection.
