FluroTech LTD is advancing the science of fluorescence spectroscopy to solve unique problems and bring new, low-cost solutions to market, improving lives and making products safer in many ways. Our patented fluorescence spectroscopy technology enables the commercialization of low-cost solutions where highly sensitive and accurate affordable results are required but generally have not been economically feasible.
The goal of FluroTech’s research and technology is to develop detection methods which are sensitive, specific, and easy-to-use. Fluorescence spectroscopy is a well-established technique that has been used for such purposes—thus, it is the basis of the scientific research performed here at FluroTech.
Fluorescence spectroscopy is a highly sensitive optical technique which uses the physical phenomenon of fluorescence to characterize and quantify compounds in a sample. The chemical structure of certain molecules gives them the property of being fluorescent, meaning that upon absorbing light of a specific wavelength, they are able to then emit light at a different and specific wavelength. For decades, a “fluorimeter” has been used for collecting of this optical/light information. This instrument records the wavelength and intensity of the absorbed and emitted light, allowing for sensitive and specific detection and quantification of fluorescent molecules.
