NIST will assess whether the technology can address issues linked to the standardization of fluorescence-based systems. Coinciding with several purchase contracts from the National Institutes of Health, this collaboration concludes more than a year of communication and exchanges between NIST and Argolight.
NIST is a nonregulatory federal agency that aims to promote innovation and competition the U.S. by advancing measurement science, standards and technology.
Argolight produces calibration solutions for fluorescence systems in the pharmaceutical, diagnostic and biotech industries. For more information, visit www.argolight.com.
