Extensive laser, optics, electronics, and sample handling capabilities support biomedical optics development in multiple laboratories. In particular, a wide range of mode-locked lasers and associated test equipment across the visible and near-IR spectral ranges support OCT-related programs. Several laboratories are certified BioSafety – Level 2 for safe handling of tissues samples and live animals. Additional facilities are available for human trials of diagnostic instrumentation. Our laboratories are IACUC conforming and we maintain NIH approved IRB procedures for human patients.
