Lantos Technologies Inc.

BioPhotonics
Nov 2010
In Massachusetts, Lantos Technologies Inc. of Cambridge has announced that it has closed on a $1.6 million deal to develop its 3-D ear canal imaging technology. Braintree-based Catalyst Health Ventures led the round, which was joined by Boston-based investors Excel Venture Management and Mass Medical Angels. Lantos’ technology provides minimally invasive digital mapping of the human ear canal, enabling the development of custom-fit audio devices such as hearing aids, earphones and noise-canceling devices. Dubbed emission reabsorption laser-induced fluorescence, the technology is a new method of 3-D image capture; the intra-aural scanner will be its first application in the medical field.


GLOSSARY
fluorescence
The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
