Nathaniel Group, Inc. (NGI), a leading specialty optical equipment designer and manufacturer, celebrates a product milestone for the Hyperion 300™ optical fiber illuminator with multiple product shipments. The product has achieved notoriety for its ability to enable use of much smaller endoscopes, more powerful imaging systems and significantly faster fluorescence integration times.
"We are pleased to see customers qualifying their leading edge products using our Hyperion technology." stated Joel Melnick, Nathaniel Group's chief executive officer. "We are regularly publishing new data on our website blog. It is truly exciting to see how far we can push the technology and the interesting ways our novel light source can be used. In addition, at the request of our customers, we have added capacity to manufacture special fiber optic assemblies that connect our light source to the end target. These types of fiber assemblies were not readily available before and that was a barrier to the success of some of our customers. The added capacity allows the Hyperion platform to help our customers reach new milestones at a faster rate.”
The Hyperion 300™ Optical Fiber Illuminator represents an important milestone for medical and industrial illumination by enabling applications that until now were only imagined. The Hyperion 300 platform is optimized to deliver up to twenty times the light levels of ordinary sources through fiber channels as small as 170 microns in diameter. The Hyperion 300 represents the latest addition to Nathaniel Group’s portfolio of products created to optimize light delivered for medical, scientific, and industrial applications.
According to market research firm Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (San Jose, California), the global medical fiber optics market will reach US$887 Million by 2015. A key factor driving market growth is the rapidly increasing demand for improved medical fiber optic systems used for illumination, imaging, and delivery of laser light. The need for small and efficient optical fibers is fast gaining importance with the growing need for minimally invasive surgery and diagnostics. Innovative and new areas of medicine, in which fiber optics can be used, are also creating abundant opportunities for medical fiber optics.
The Hyperion 300 platform can be integrated into most medical and industrial equipment. For more information and a free technical paper, please visit our website www.nathaniel.com.
