BERLIN, Nov. 6, 2014 — The FluoDuoFiber system from art photonics GmbH is a multichannel fiber optic probe for fluorescence sensing of human cells in multiorgan chips (MOCs).
The system has four fiber legs (two for each wavelength channel) and a common distal end (bundle) directed to the MOC chamber. The probe legs used for excitation light delivery from an LED are made from optical glass fiber and designed for high coupling efficiency.
The detecting fiber bundle in the distal end center is made with a special fiber arrangement to collect the proper ratio of fluorescence signal from the MOC and deliver it to two photomultiplier tubes.
The probe is protected by flexible tubing and can be installed in robotic systems or endoscopes. The system is intended not only for lab use but also for monitoring of bioreactors and diagnostics.
