The efficient control and regulation of process parameters in industrial processes, such as in a semiconductor fabrication facility, is a fundamental requirement in detailed manufacturing processes, along with environmental releases and control, to provide both a healthy working environment for employees and reduction of environmental and greenhouse gas emissions. Lightsense miniaturized spectrometers can be used for real-time in-line process control of process steps. Gases, liquids, and solid substances can be continuously monitored with Lightsense Technology’s spectrometers to optimize yields and production efficiency, while also allowing for control and minimization of emissions and serve as a warning system for potential issues or hazards.
For detection of viral pathogens, in particular Coronavirus, the source of Covid-19, there is a critical need for tools that can provide real-time, point-of-need results by untrained operators. Current technology is either slow (hours and days for PCR) and expensive, or uses blood samples (antibody), often requiring clinical settings. Lightsense has developed a new spectroscopy architecture with extraordinary sensitivity, Enhanced Photoemission Spectroscopy (EPS), a technology platform that provides solutions that are simple, fast and low-cost detection of viral pathogens in saliva with a handheld scanner and is expected to take about ~2 minutes.
Food safety is a large and growing problem with 76 million illnesses, 325,000 hospitalizations, and 5,000 deaths yearly in the US. A new spectroscopy architecture developed by Lightsense, Enhanced Photoemission Spectroscopy (EPS), as a handheld scanner, can quickly and easily detect bacterial pathogens and is expected to become an important tool for safeguarding the food supply in processing plants, supermarkets, and restaurants (especially fast-food chains, and the new “delivery” supply chains).
