Pacific Biosciences

BioPhotonics
Oct 2012
Pacific Biosciences of California Inc. of Menlo Park, and imec, a nanoelectronics research center in Louvain, Belgium, have announced a multiyear research collaboration focused on the development of advanced microchips for highly multiplexed single-molecule genetic analysis. The research will build on Pacific Biosciences’ zero-mode waveguide (ZMW) technology and imec’s experience in nanophotonics, CMOS sensors, technology integration and fabrication. Pacific Biosciences said it is committed to exploiting the potential of the capabilities of its ZMW-based single-molecule, real-time (SMRT) analysis technology to drive innovation in the life sciences. The goal is to harness the power of microchips to scale the capacity and throughput of the SMRT technology.

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...
