How Delta Optical Thin Film is Meeting the Miniaturisation and Manufacturing Requirements of Today’s Optical Filters for Next-Generation Point of Care Devices

This article is brought to you by: 

The Point of Care (PoC) device market is growing rapidly and not just because of the effects of the recent pandemic. These instruments have various uses in medical diagnostics, including the detection of infectious diseases, testing haemoglobin levels and monitoring blood glucose levels. They are a popular choice for these types of tests as they only require a single drop of blood, saliva, or urine and can be performed by a GP within minutes.

Scientists develop laser diode that emits 'world's shortest lasing wavelength'

Scientists have designed a laser diode that emits what they say is the shortest-wavelength ultraviolet light achieved to-date, with potential applications in disinfection, dermatology, and the analysis of gas and DNA

Artery Targeted Photothrombosis to Better Model Human Stroke and Forelimb Impairment

Researchers have developed a new method to better model human stroke which uses artery-targeted photothrombosis. This shows a clear improvement on traditional methods by creating a larger penumbra for a longer amount of time while maintaining the practical results of the traditional model.
