  • Till Photonics Wins Award for Live-Cell Screening

Photonics Spectra
Oct 2005
The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) has awarded Till Photonics GmbH €2.5 million for its biophotonics network proposal. The Gräfelfing-based company’s live-cell screening project, which commenced activities in June, brings together German academic institutions and biotechnology, optoelectronics and electromechanics companies.

The network will work to develop a novel screening platform for substances in the pharmaceutical industry. Its goal is to observe multiple cellular parameters in a single measurement, with an increase in the sensitivity and selectivity, and to achieve the same throughput with a multiple-parameter platform as with a single-parameter system.

A sub-field of photonics that pertains to an electronic device that responds to optical power, emits or modifies optical radiation, or utilizes optical radiation for its internal operation. Any device that functions as an electrical-to-optical or optical-to-electrical transducer. Electro-optic often is used erroneously as a synonym.
