Small optical filters without compromising spectral quality

Physically small custom optical filters

Delta Optical Thin Film can deliver physically small custom optical filters for research, clinical and Point-of-Care (PoC) fluorescence-based instruments in high volumes at low cost. By combining our optical filters with our knowledge in complete optical design, we help our customers with more than the optical filters.

PoC medical technologies require portable, small and robust instrumentation for practical implementation. Most of the potential applications of PoC technology require a detection sensitivity at least equivalent to existing methods. This means that the optics in this system need to be at least as good as in larger equipment. The challenge is to reduce the size of all optics without compromising the optical output.

We have often been involved in optimisations of the optical system, and thereby improved the quality of the instrument together with our customers. Our background as OEM supplier of high-quality filter sets for fluorescence microscopy gives the right background as supplier of optical filters used in PoC instruments. Many times, our high-performance fluorescence filters have been the starting point of fruitful collaborations.

PoC diagnostics suppliers need micro-fluidics technology, medical expertise, and optical expertise, meaning that close and efficient partnerships between very different companies are required. Delta Optical Thin Film is used to work as a trusted partner, and we have many times been involved in optimisations of the optical system, thereby improved the quality of the instrument together with our customers.

Our optical filters have been used in clinical applications in the biomedical, biotech, and drug discovery markets. All our optical filters are engineered for the next generation of PoC instruments.
