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!
With the advancements in surgical procedures, more operating rooms are performing ‘minimally invasive’ surgeries. What that means is, instead of operating on patients through large incisions, miniaturized surgical instruments are being used to fit through small, sometimes as small as quarter-inch, incisions. The surgical precision lenses in these instruments contain magnified high-definition 3-D cameras that […]
Sometimes known as photo eyes, photoelectric sensors emit a beam of light that is used to detect the presence or absence of items and equipment, or changes in surface conditions. When the emitted light is interrupted or reflected back by the object, the change in light patterns is measured by a receiver, thus the target […]
Although 3D printing is commonly thought of as a new ‘futuristic’ concept, it has actually been around for more than 30 years.
Glass-based optical lenses are used in multiple applications. From the camera in a cell phone to a sophisticated, professional camera, to microscopes and other imaging devices used in the medical field – glass lenses are the standard. Today’s lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, in relationship to cameras or microscopes, require lenses made […]
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. […]
