Crystal IS Adds High-Output DUV LEDs to Optan Surface Mount Product Line For Instrumentation

Crystal IS augmented the Optan SMD (surface mount device) product line for instrumentation with the addition of higher light output and wavelength specific bins (SKUs).

This newest offering resulted from increased demand for UVC LEDs in fluorescence spectroscopy, imaging and biofouling control.

Like other Optan products, the high-performance UVC LED uses lattice matched native Aluminum Nitride (AlN) substrates, Crystal IS's competitive differentiator, proven to overcome limitations of other UVC LEDs in the instrumentation markets.

With high light output at wavelengths from 250 nm – 280 nm, new or improved use cases include:

  • Fluorescence spectroscopy: Label-free spectroscopy is important in biological cell imaging, tissue diagnostics and proteomics.

  • Flow cytometry: Routinely used in bio-analytics and medical diagnosis, cell counting, cell sorting and biomarker detection.

  • Biofouling control: UVC LEDs can now be used for protecting larger sensors and those operating in environments which experience significant biofouling.

  • Light source for catalyzing persulfate oxidation in TOC (total organic carbon) measurement: High levels of TOC can degrade water purification systems used in semiconductor and pharmaceutical manufacturing.

"Our newest Optan SMD bin has a higher light output and longer lifetime than any LEDs commercially available now," said Larry Felton, CEO of Crystal IS. "We are proud to give our manufacturing customers an environmentally friendly, long life option for their instrumentation products."
