Photonic BioSystems, Inc.
Photonic BioSystems, Inc. has developed new technology for measuring oxygen non-invasively inside sealed packages for the food, beverage, medical, pharmaceutical and electronics industries. Using remote optical interrogation, it eliminates destructive package testing and enables non-contact, rapid, real-time oxygen measurements. This innovative approach makes “smart packages” by incorporating a small amount of an oxygen-sensitive luminescent dye inside the package film itself. The technology is extremely diverse, capable of measuring oxygen either in the gas phase environment of a dry package, in the headspace of a liquid package, or of dissolved-oxygen in fluids and beverages. This enables significant application for flexible film packages, rigid containers, bottles, vials, caps, and other sealed vessels.
With its economic feasibility, the door for 100% quality control and quality assurance has now been opened. Through the patented process, oxygen-sensing polymer films can be made from nearly any grade of packaging plastic designed for food, medical or electronics packaging. The potential of this technology (oxygen-sensitive smart packages) can be consider a game-changer for the packaging industry. Photonic BioSystems is currently seeking license candidates and welcomes all interested parties to contact them directly to discuss this opportunity and/or submit proposals.
