Jun 2008
The National Cancer Institute (a division of the US National Institutes of Health) recently conducted tests on Zecotek Photonics Inc.'s green fiber laser (GFL-550) in flow cytometry. William Telford, head of the Flow Cytometry Core Laboratory at the institute, presented a paper about the GFL-550’s performance and 550-nm wavelength at the 24th International Congress of the International Society for Analytical Cytometry, held last month in Budapest, Hungary. In addition to s 550-nm model, Zecotek’s GFL series provides wavelengths in the 515- to 560-nm range suitable for bio-instrumentation, medical, material processing and research applications. The GFL series will be manufactured by Fujikura of Japan under a joint agreement. Zecotek is a Vancouver, B.C.-based photonics technology company that develops crystals, photo detectors, lasers, imaging and 3-D display technologies for medical, biotech, industrial, nanotech and atomic/molecular science markets.


GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
