Real-time measurements of bioaerosols enabled by photonics with IKO Science OÜ
We want our customers in photonics business to shine! We believe that for companies having products based on photonic solutions it is wise to outsource some (if not all) of their key component manufacturing. This cuts costs and saves resources for focusing to core aspects of the business.
One fascinating example of our collaborations is an Estonian company IKO Science OÜ. They have developed a measurement instrument capable of measuring air-borne bacteria, viruses, spores, and other bio aerosols, accurately and in real-time.
The core of the device is based on advanced photonics technology. The related product, IKO Biodetector BD-500, has a wide range of applications. These include operating rooms, intensive care units, departments for infectious diseases, crowded places, and production premises for pharmaceutical and food industries, just to mention a few.
We share with IKO Science a belief in the efficiency of outsourcing and are happy to deliver customer specific photonic components to them throughout the product life cycle, from development phase to mass production.
