Custom System Solution Examples
IPS often partners with customers from research to commercialization with a particular emphasis on spectroscopy applications. Since 2003, we have leveraged our unique wavelength stabilized laser technology with our knowledge of optics, microelectronics and high reliability packaging to partner with our customers and offer truly innovative solutions ranging from components to unique packaging solutions to fully integrated systems. Outlined below are a selection of custom system solutions IPS has developed in collaboration with our customers.
We searched extensively to find the right partner to help design and build our prototype device. Innovative Photonic Solutions offered us the best solution: a high quality, custom system in only three months, when other firms requested at least six months. We were pleasantly surprised when the instrument arrived not only on time, but also within our budget. Building the system was truly a collaborative process, with IPS keeping us well informed every step of the way. Our IPS engineers went above-and-beyond the call of duty, digging in to unique technical challenges and offering creative solutions. They helped familiarize us with the system during install, were available for eleventh-hour troubleshooting needs, and are still regularly available when we have any questions. A+ would buy again.
- Storm Stillman, Co-Founder and CEO at Luminist
Luminist (a biomedical diagnostics startup) worked with IPS to develop a compact Raman system with adjustable polarization to conduct a proof of principle study while participating in a startup accelerator. IPS designed, integrated, and delivered the initial prototype system in three months and enabled Luminist to demonstrate their concept and exceed their fundraising goals.
Coherent Lasers for Medical Sensing
OrNim came to IPS in 2005 to develop a series of highly coherent laser sources at different wavelengths for use in a developmental medical device capable of measuring blood velocimetry and volume non-invasively. The two companies worked together over the years to identify the salient characteristics of laser performance to optimize the product; and now the C-Flow system has received FDA approval and is in use by Cardio-Thoracic surgeons before, during, and after surgery to monitor the health of the patient.
Early Cancer Detection Using SERS
The overall team at Innovative Photonic Solutions has been terrific and one can count on their determination, innovation and expediency in completing a project on time. Better still is the ongoing relationship that you can build with the team. Great bunch of folks and we at BioMark are delighted to be associated with Innovative Photonic Solutions
- Rashid Ahmed, CEO and Founder - BioMark Diagnostics Inc.
IPS Teamed with BioMark Diagnostics to develop a novel Surface Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) plate reader for cancer screening. The system’s modular design incorporates our high throughput integrated Raman probe with a compact spectrometer and computer interface and will be used to rapidly validate the efficacy of cancer treatments.
Non-Contact Optical Vibrometer
LightWorks came to IPS with an optical table full of components and asked us to miniaturize and package their design. The result was this non-contact optical vibrometer (measuring 4″ x 1.5″x 1″) that is capable of detecting < 1-micron movements at distances over 30 meters away.
IPS was approached by the US government to provide a speckle free light source to enable iris recognition at extended distances. We developed a multi-wavelength system that solved a problem known as “Photon Starvation”, and enables detection at distances greater than 100 ft.
This is just a small sample of the custom system solution projects IPS has helped our customers to develop.
