- About us
The Light Engine has been developed to deliver the visual (VIS) and near infrared (NIR) light used in both the open and laparoscopic mode of the Quest Spectrum™ Platform. In both cases the Light Engine is connected with a light cable for either the ring light in open surgery or a light cable that attaches to the laparoscope.
Together with the camera, the Light Engine determines which fluorophores can be imaged. The LEDs and Lasers in the Light Engine deliver the light in the visible area and also the light that excites the fluorophore. The fluorescence that the fluorophore starts emitting when excited is picked up by the camera. The Light Engine is designed in a modular way. This makes it possible to build in other wavelengths or add more Watts (power).
