Syntec Optics manufactures high-quality medical optics devices with innovative imaging techniques for complete understanding and care of the human body. Devices that rely on medical optics are used to view the human body in order to diagnose, monitor or treat medical conditions (Diagnostics, Colonoscopy, Endoscopy, Cancer detection, and Dental imaging, etc.). Syntec Optics holds experience in major developments of biomedical imaging with the help of polymer plastic optics for over a decade on multiple projects.
A medical endoscope is an instrument used to examine the interior of a hollow organ or cavity of the body. It is an elongated optical device used to observe otherwise inaccessible areas within the human body through a small orifice. These devices are widely used in medical diagnostics imaging and surgical treatment.
Syntec Optics has created optical and opaque components used in colonoscopy procedures. These lenses are used to examine large bowel and the distal part of the small bowel with a camera on a flexible tube passed through the anus. It provides a way to diagnose visually and gives the opportunity for biopsy.
Spectroscopy is basically the measurement of the interaction of light with various materials. By analyzing the amount of light absorbed or emitted by a sample, we can determine what it’s made of and how much of it there is. Optical spectroscopy studies the absorption and emission of light by matter.
Syntec Optics is working on the design of components for an optical probe for colon cancer biopsy. Optical probes can distinguish between normal and abnormal tissues in vivo without the need to remove them. We are developing spectrographs in collaboration with leading academic institutions to differentiate polyps.
Optical probes can distinguish between normal and abnormal tissues in vivo without the need to remove them. Syntec Optics is collaborating with leading academic institutions in developing the probe, in vivo imaging techniques and also spectrographs that can differentiate between normal and abnormal tissue.
Plastic ophthalmic lenses bend light to correct focusing defects of the eye. Lenses that are thicker in the middle and thinner at their edge converge light and can be used to correct hypermetropia. Lenses that are thinner in the middle and thicker at their edge diverge light and can be used to correct myopia.
Digital imaging, in today’s times, is becoming more and more an essential part of dentistry. Patients expect to find digital dental imaging in dental practice. It is a technology patient can rely on from their dentist. Dentists can ensure enhanced patient satisfaction and productivity with digital imaging.
Syntec Optics has recently done prototyping involving SPDT lenses with diameters of 5mm and less for a dental camera application. The customer supplied STL mechanical barrels which were used to house the optics that were cemented into place. The next step is to do DFM to allow for cost-effective volume manufacturing.
