Our custom lens assemblies are designed to be used in all types of medical imaging. Medical imaging is the process of creating images of the human body, from the internal organs, to skeletal imaging, to microscopic diagnostic imaging. Universe Kogaku manufactures devices used in endoscope couplers, fiberscope couplers, diagnostic camera hand pieces, and medical X-ray scanning. Our Medical Imaging Lens assemblies include a standard offering of the most desired relay, 3 CCD relay, mounted and bare achromatic lenses. You will find the most popular combinations of F/no., focal length and back focal length available off-the-shelf, designed for use with today's high-resolution diagnostic cameras. We produce products that are extremely durable, well made, and very functional. If you are looking for custom lens assemblies for your medical systems, we have dozens of products that you can browse through and you can always talk to one of our qualified experts. We can provide you with recommendations and advice for your lens assembly. Universe has full design capability paired with years of manufacturing experience allowing us to produce any special lens.... in any quantity!
Using Raman optical technology, scientists at the University of Twente in The Netherlands can now produce images of brain tissue that is affected by Alzheimer’s disease. The images include the surrounding areas that are already showing changes.
Researchers have developed the first instrument that will provide a detailed image of the entire eye. Incorporating a lens that changes optical parameters in response to electric currents, the radically new technology can produce higher quality images than currently available. Combining optical coherence tomography and an electrically actuated tunable lens will change the way medical […]
Anyone that has ever landed in an emergency room with a broken bone, head injury, or been pregnant has been exposed to medical imaging technology, and is acutely aware of how important it can be. With medical imaging technology, lives have been saved when one has presented with a stroke, any kind of tumor, or […]
Originally called ‘single-beam gradient force trap’, optical tweezers are scientific instruments that use a highly focused laser beam to provide an attractive, or repulsive force, depending on the refractive index mismatch to physically hold and move microscopic dielectric objects similar to tweezers. Optical tweezers have been particularly successful in studying a variety of biological systems […]
Currently, diagnosing Alzheimer’s relies largely on documentation of any mental decline. However, when diagnosing Alzheimer’s in this way, it has already caused severe brain damage in individuals. What if we could diagnose Alzheimer’s before symptoms started? It is increasingly clear that by the time a typical AD patient comes to diagnosis atrophy is well established. […]
You may have seen it on CSI: The star examines hair from a crime scene and concludes its color or texture looks like the defendant’s hair, or maybe his dog’s. Case closed. But, looks can be deceiving, as well as vague and subjective. According to Frank DelRio, and engineer at the National Institute of Standards […]
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a fundamentally new type of optical imaging modality. OCT is a non-invasive imaging test that uses light waves to take high-resolution, cross-section pictures of the retina, retinal nerve fiber layer, and the optic nerve head. OCT imaging is somewhat analogous to ultrasound B mode imaging except that it uses light […]
Biophotonic technology plays a key role in providing the most effective, lowest-cost approaches for diagnosing, treating, and preventing disease and maintaining a healthy U.S. citizenry.
Imaging single proteins has been a long-standing ambition for advancing various fields in natural science. For instance, structural biology, biophysics, and molecular nanotechnology. In particular, revealing the distinct conformations of an individual protein is of utmost importance. The past 20 years have witnessed the advent of numerous technologies to specifically and covalently label proteins in […]
