Continual improvements in medicine, surgical procedures, and medical diagnostic techniques have resulted in earlier diagnosis of diseases and more effective treatments, shortening recovery times and improving overall healthcare quality. At the same time, demand for improved patient “quality of experience” at hospitals and clinics continues to increase. This puts pressure on health care providers to develop solutions to meet patients' needs. Daylight Solutions understands the requirements of the medical industry and is developing advanced technology for medical diagnostics, anesthesiology, and surgical procedures.
The emerging field of breath diagnostics promises to enhance medical diagnostic procedures with real-time feedback of a patient’s condition. The simple, pain free nature of breath diagnostics improves patient compliance with testing and diagnostic monitoring programs. Using human breath as a sampling mechanism avoids conventional techniques that rely on blood, saliva, urine or sweat. Simple-to-use breath analysis instruments provide immediate results and eliminate the need for skilled professionals to analyze blood samples. This significantly reduces laboratory analysis time and cost. Breath analysis also provides a significant step towards personalized medicine, which can improve drug effectiveness.
Sensors based on Daylight Solutions' patented External Cavity Quantum Cascade Laser (ECqcL™) technology are ideal for a wide variety of molecular detection applications in the medical industry. The “fingerprint” analysis techniques employed in these sensors can measure breath constituent concentrations, monitor hospital air quality, and even determine real-time anesthesia levels during surgery. These techniques can also be applied to non-invasive glucose detection for real-time, pain-free monitoring.
Daylight Solutions' technology can be matched to existing surgical laser wavelengths or tuned to any other wavelength within the mid-infrared spectrum. This provides the surgeon with additional capabilities in the area of optimizing tissue penetration.
Daylight Solutions’ technology enables many new opportunities in the medical field. The company is currently working with industry partners to develop instruments and related procedures that will significantly advance today’s diagnostic and monitoring capabilities.
