The implementation of new medical technology accounts between 38 and 65% of health care spending increases. New technology expands the range of treatment options available to patients; however, it does so by replacing lower-cost options with higher-cost services.
UVC LEDs help instrument manufacturers build smaller, powerful tools and products with lower costs. Crystal IS, a maker of UVC-LEDs used in life science applications, aims to remedy the higher-cost issue.
For background, Crystal IS’ UVC LEDs are built on aluminum nitride substrates. Crystal IS recently launched its Optan product, which is a breakthrough for design engineers in the analytical and life sciences instrumentation markets looking to overcome the financial limitations associated with traditional medical devices.
Crystal IS is currently developing a two-part series that addresses using UVC LEDs with lower-cost options in medical design. The proposed content for the series includes:
- Part 1: Using UVC LEDS for HPLC and DNA Purity measurements
- Part 2: Using UVC LEDs for More Cost Effective Instruments
