    1. U.S. Optical Imaging Technologies to Benefit from Technical Advances and Rising Uptake in Certain Application Areas Says Frost & Sullivan

      The use of optical technologies in clinics is currently limited due to restricted availability of validated data and low end-user awareness. However, technological advances, along with manufacturers' emphasis on promoting end-user education, are likely to result in some optical technologies, such as optical coherence tomography (OCT) and fluorescence spectroscopy, gaining market presence in certain applications such as ophthalmology, dentistry, and cancer screening over the next five to ten years.

    2. New Manufacturing Method Results in Non-Cytotoxic Nanorods for In-Vivo Therapeutics and Imaging

      future in-vivo nanoparticle for the detection and treatment of solid tumor cancers – without the need for surgery. This new proprietary method, removes the cytotoxic cetyl trimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) capping agent necessary for manufacturing, replacing it with polyethylene glycol (PEG). PEG has a low toxicity and is used in a variety of products. It is the basis of a number of laxatives and skin creams and many other well known products. The combination of the gold nanorods with PEG coatings, name Ntracker, has shown shown half-life circulation times of greater than 17 hours in mice.
