Tumor and Lymph Node on Chip

Alpes Lasers joins project on tumor and lymph node on Chip for cancer studies Alpes Lasers is a partner in the recently-launched Tumor-LN-oC project which proposes the development of a tumor-lymph node-on-chip (Tumor-LN-oC) platform composed of 3D tissue models and microfluidic chips.Using sensitive off-chip proteomic and molecular approaches this platform will allow the identification of novel biomarkers characterizing metastatic cells which […]

Laser Spectroscopy with XT-QCL

A group at the TU Wien and Friedrich-Alexander University, who are partners with Alpes Lasers through the Hydroptics and WaterSpy project, have recently published a paper titled “Polarimetric Balanced Detection: Background-Free Mid-IR Evanescent Field Laser Spectroscopy for Low-Noise, Long-term Stable Chemical Sensing” which uses a QC-XT laser from Alpes Lasers to measure water quality in situ at the Prato water treatment […]

Monitoring Water Quality using QCLs

WaterSpy is a consortium of 10 partners, including Alpes Lasers, funded by Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation for 2014-2020 in order to develop water quality analysis photonics technology suitable for inline, field measurements. At the completion of the project in 2020, the WaterSpy module was extensively tested in the labs of partners in Austria, Germany and […]

Hydroptics project kick-off

Neuchâtel (Switzerland). EU funded project “Photonics sensing platform for process optimisation in the oil industry”, in short HYDROPTICS, had its official kick-off meeting on the 5thDecember 2019. The projects goal is to increase the competitiveness of the EU oil industry sector, by providing high-accuracy oil-in-water analyzer based on state of the art mid-IR light sources and […]
