Singlet Oxygen Dosimeter
Real-time singlet oxygen detection
Enables real-time measurement of singlet oxygen produced during photodynamic therapy (PDT) and UV irradiation of human skin
The PSI singlet oxygen dosimeter is based on an innovative computational spectroscopy approach to achieve highly sensitive luminescence spectral measurements using a high-quantum efficiency signal-point detector and a spatial light modulator. The high signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) spectroscopic data provided by the dosimeter enables accurate determination of photosensitizer (PS) luminescence baseline via spectral fitting and extraction of the singlet oxygen phosphorescence signal based solely on spectroscopic decomposition, without the need for temporal gating. This enables direct measurement of singlet oxygen production during continuous-wave PDT treatment, critical for clinical use as a real-time dosimeter.
