Fluorescence imaging is often used to visualize biological tissues or blood vessels during reconstructive surgery to see if vessels are connected properly. Currently, researchers use a dye that runs at the near-infrared (NIR) level of the light spectrum that gets imaged through a specialized camera that can pick up that light that runs at 700 to 900 nanometers.
Researchers have recently found that light running at more than 1,000 nanometers, known as short-wave infrared (SWIR), gives clearer images than NIR. However, there are no FDA-approved fluorescence dyes with peak emission that can run at the SWIR range.
At DeviceTalks Boston, Tyler Shultz will give attendees an inside look at Theranos and how he was able to sound the alarm after he realized the company was falling apart. Shultz will take attendees behind the story that everyone is talking about: the rise and fall of Elizabeth Holmes and her diagnostic company, Theranos.
Join Shultz and 1,000+ medical device professionals at the 8th annual DeviceTalks Boston.
