The CIRTEMO™ Multivariate Optical Element Platform

Multivariate Optical Computing (MOC) is an alternative method for extracting chemical signature information from optical spectra from the ultraviolet to the infrared. MOC is most often achieved by refinement of optical interference structures called Multivariate Optical Elements (MOE). The MOE allows simple optical systems to achieve the sensitivity/specificity of a laboratory grade spectrometer in a compact, filter photometer configuration.

CIRTEMO™ Partners

CIRTEMO™ primarily partners with Optical Filter Manufacturers and Optical Component and System Manufacturers. The CIRTEMO™ Multivariate Optical Element platform enables our partners the ability to differentiate their offerings with a well-protected intellectual property position. Ultimately, their customers may tackle new applications that are not possible with traditional optical filters and coatings today.

CIRTEMO™ to Showcase Results from NSF Funded Reseach

Dr. Ryan Priore, Chief Technology Officer of Multivariate Optical Element innovator CIRTEMO™, will present a poster showcasing National Science Foundation funded research for advancing Multivariate Optical Computing for fluorochrome discrimination during the 5:30pm “Optical Diagnostics and Sensing XV: Toward Point-of-Care Diagnostics” session Monday, February 9, 2015 at Photonics West. SPIE Photonics West 2015 is the leading conference for biophotonics and biomedical optics, optoelectronics, microfabrication, and photonics. “Fluorescence applications continue to be an exciting arena for CIRTEMO™ and our customers,” said Jason Williamson, CIRTEMO™ founder. “The funding that the National Science Foundation provided for this project opens a whole new realm of possibilities for life science and medical device applications.”

CIRTEMO to Unveil MOE Platform for Fluorochrome Discrimination

CIRTEMO announced today that the company will unveil an updated Multivariate Optical Element (MOE) platform for fluorochrome discrimination version 2.0 at the 2013 American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) annual meeting. The trade show, to be held in New Orleans’ Ernest N. Morial Convention Center from December 14 through 17, is the largest annual meeting of research cell biologists in the world. “After our first fluorochrome discrimination platform launched early this year, CIRTEMO’s partners and customers provided valuable insight into the capabilities they are looking for in optical filters for their instruments and research,” said Jason Williamson, CIRTEMO founder. “The imaging and excitation capabilities recently added to our fluorochrome discrimination platform are significant for cell researchers, instrument and diagnostic manufacturers alike,” said Dr. Ryan Priore, CIRTEMO’s CTO.
