G&H Joins PhiLumina in HSI Expansion

ORLANDO, Fla. and GULFPORT, Miss., May 6, 2014 — UK company Gooch & Housego and PhiLumina LLC of Gulfport, Miss., have teamed up to expand capabilities and offerings for hyperspectral imaging (HSI) applications.

The agreement enables PhiLumina to integrate its HSI scanning products and software into G&H’s Life Sciences and Instrumentation division to further develop and enhance spectral imaging technology based on high-speed acousto-optic tunable filters (AOTFs).

The companies expect this will expand their respective client bases, while allowing G&H to offer PhiLumina’s modular and customizable spectral imaging software and capabilities.

In addition, PhiLumina will bring its existing spectral imaging systems and technologies to the table through G&H marketing and distribution channels.

“This collaborative agreement will allow G&H to deliver better on its promise of fully application-specific spectral imaging tools,” said Alex Fong, senior vice president of the G&H Life Sciences and Instrumentation division.

The company’s AOTF technology allows “rapid sequential and nonsequential center wavelength access, selectable bandwidth sizes” and speeds that are 1000 times faster than comparable technologies, he added. Hyperspectral data sets can then be acquired as quickly as a camera can acquire images.
