Photek Ltd.

BioPhotonics
Oct 2009
Photek Ltd. of St. Leonards on Sea, UK, has been selected to join the European Seventh Framework Programme along with other companies from the Czech Republic, France, Ireland, Spain and the UK. The program, called BioliSME, is intended to develop a system to detect Listeria monocytogenes in agro-food industries. The proposed solution is expected to use fluorescence detection to identify the pathogen rapidly.

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.
