Excellent properties for highest measurement accuracy in the laboratory or at the point-of-care.

SiPMs enable a new era in bio-photonic applications. Due to their compact size, high photon detection efficiency, low dark count rate and excellent timing properties, the integration density in spectrometers can be significantly increased. Additionally their excellent temperature stability allows operation in handheld devices in many point-of-care applications.
