Crystal IS UVC LEDs

Share this on social media:

Pacer International has been chosen as distribution partner for Europe by innovative U.S.-based manufacturer Crystal IS.

Crystal IS, an Asahi Kasei company, offers proprietary, high-performance UVC LEDs. The superior light output and spectral quality of the company’s Optan UVC LED technology delivers best-in-class reliability and longer lifetimes - a game changer for life sciences, analytical instrumentation and environmental monitoring. Optan is the breakthrough product that allows developers to fully exploit the power of UV-based technology to improve productivity, increase accuracy and create greater flexibility in product designs.

Optan UVC LEDs are well-suited for scientific and industrial instruments, to measure the purity of water, air, surfaces and biological samples, and also for purification and sterilization applications, including industrial and point-of-use  water purification.

The Crystal IS partner selection process carefully reviewed Pacer’s capabilities in consultation and services in optical systems.  Pacer will offer Optan UVC LEDs to customers looking for state-of-the-art light sources for many different instrumentation applications including:

  • HPLC (High Performance Liquid Chromatography) for purification of proteins and pharmaceutical manufacturing
  • Real-time monitoring applications for water quality in drinking water and industrial wastewater
  • Ozone monitoring for detection of harmful pollutants

The Optan LEDs are currently available in peak wavelengths from 250nm to 280nm and power bins from 0.5 mW to 2 mW, ideal for spectroscopic applications because of their high spectral quality and reliability.
