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!
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 […]
Imagine knowing enough about Earth’s atmosphere to predict climate trends, or knowing enough about a hurricane to get the right people evacuated. Consider a time when advances in medical procedures retire the scalpel to the museum. Even in precision-manufacturing, laser technology advancements can potentially bring consumer costs down because of its efficiency.
Intelligent robotics is one of the technologies that has the potential to fundamentally alter society. From both an industrial and social perspective. “Smart perception” is a key concept that will drive this evolution toward intelligent robotics. With the continued advancements, we could see micro-sized cameras looking at every angle, depth, mode or change in any […]
It’s the part of the eye exam everyone hates: the pupil-dilating eye drops. Your eyes remain blurry for several hours afterwards, often making the process inconvenient for both patient and doctor. The reason for the dilation is to keep the iris from constricting, and is used for routine examination and to photograph the back of […]
Biomedical engineers at Duke University have discovered a way to detect signs of cancer on a cell-by-cell basis using a technique that involves two lasers and a camera. The technique, using biomedical lasers and cameras, can assess an individual cell’s stiffness using patterns that appear within its internal structure. Several medical devices currently in use […]
Optical imaging is a technique for non-invasively looking inside the body, as is done with x-rays. But, unlike x-rays, which use ionizing radiation, optical imaging uses visible light and the special properties of photons to obtain detailed images of organs and tissues as well as smaller structures including cells and even molecules. Because it is […]
Safer lasers to map your cells could soon be in the offing – all thanks to the humble jellyfish. A combined team of researchers from Scotland and Germany has developed a way to create a polariton laser by using jellyfish proteins cultivated in E. coli cells. In their paper published in the journal Science Advances, […]
