To further accelerate R&D work for novel coronavirus (COVID-19) test reagents, Hamamatsu Photonics has developed a new fluorescence immunochromato reader with both high sensitivity and high reproducibility

Here at Hamamatsu Photonics we have developed a new “Immunochromato Reader C10066-60” that gives precise readouts of fluorescence in immunochromatographic reagents. Its measurement sensitivity has been boosted more than 10 times higher than currently available products by applying our own advanced signal processing technology and optical design technology. This new immunochromato reader (lateral flow reader) Read more about To further accelerate R&D work for novel coronavirus (COVID-19) test reagents, Hamamatsu Photonics has developed a new fluorescence immunochromato reader with both high sensitivity and high reproducibility[…]

Hamamatsu Photonics has developed a high performance MCP with low noise and high gain that contains no hazardous substances listed in the RoHS directive

By reviewing all materials starting from scratch and applying an ALD* (atomic layer deposition) technique, we succeeded in creating ALD-MCPs (microchannel plates) that ensure low noise and high signal multiplication (gain) without using materials containing lead. Eliminating lead is great step forward because its use is restricted in the RoHS directive issued by the European Read more about Hamamatsu Photonics has developed a high performance MCP with low noise and high gain that contains no hazardous substances listed in the RoHS directive[…]
