ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
Please join us for a FREE webinar, sponsored by Excelitas Technologies.
There are several factors to consider when choosing a light source for medical or bioanalytical diagnostic equipment. OEMs continue to look for ways to improve performance, quality and reliability.
With recent advancements in LED technology emerging, OEMs are presented with new possibilities through a growing number of light source options. So, how does one choose the right light source? There are key factors to consider when determining which light source is best suited for your application: wavelengths; uniformity; technology platforms; thermal management; light delivery; power budget; and economy of space. Which light source will provide reliable and repeatable results? How does one transition from lamp to LED? Why are thermals important? What is the best color spectrum for your application? How can these factors expedite path to market and ensure success?
This webinar will discuss these key factors in more detail and their impact on biomedical or diagnostic design, engineering and integration.
