Meeting the needs of a growing and vital market


20 Years

One of the main drivers of the current growth and interest in biophotonics is the world’s aging population, which brings with it a growing number of patients suffering from a broad range of critical illnesses. Biophotonics applications enable faster detection and optimum treatment of many such illnesses, as is underscored in a recent report, “Global Biophotonics Market to 2016,” from Dublin-based Research and Markets.

Light microscopy and other associated technologies are used to detect biological functions at cellular and subcellular levels, and biophotonics is finding application in the food sciences sector for ensuring food safety. Biophotonics-based imaging technology is now used in a number of areas, including nanobiotechnology and cell biology. One day soon, biopsies and more will be replaced by biomedical imaging, according to the report.

From live-cell imaging for research to biophotonics therapy for treating early-stage cancer and optical tomography for the diagnosis of macular degeneration and so much more, biophotonics is changing medical research and health care before our eyes.

BioPhotonics magazine was launched – as BioPhotonics International – from the pages of Photonics Spectra in the fall of 1994, when the promise of biophotonic technology applications in the life sciences began to grow and it became clear that those using the technology on a daily basis needed a publication that delivered 100 percent relevant content in every issue.

The publisher at the time, Wendy A. Laurin, wrote, “As you look through this first issue, we hope you will share our sense of awe at the increasing number of ways that photonic technology is becoming an integral part of the medical and biophotonic scene.” Today, that early admiration only strengthens, as biophotonics has grown into an industry some analysts expect to grow at better than 10 percent (CAGR) annually through 2016.

BioPhotonics magazine maintains 27,500 subscribers across print and digital editions – more than any of our competitors covering light-based technologies in the life sciences – and publishes 10 issues annually covering lasers, optics, imaging, lighting, microscopy and spectroscopy in every issue.

Today, important work is going on in translational research, the urgent effort to move promising biophotonic technologies more quickly into clinical use. Our readers count on BioPhotonics magazine for an unmatched level of dedicated coverage, including the latest research news right along with the top industry news – and both strong technology and application articles in every issue.

And, of course, BioPhotonics is available in print, digital and mobile versions, reflecting both expanding reader options as well as the exciting and rapid uptake of biophotonic technologies across the life sciences.

Companion newsletters reach interested readers from Photonics Media’s expansive global base, pulling them into the industry’s top stories and pushing them to your website. New this year, the Spectroscopy e-newsletter is sent to 30,000 readers quarterly.

As biophotonic technologies continue to make good on their early promise, BioPhotonics magazine will continue to deliver the industry to readers.
