Patented Self-Referencing Technology

Patented  Self-Referencing Technology

The patented ActiPix™ ‘self-referencing’ technology allows fluctuations from light sources or thermal effects to be removed from the signal of interest, improving signal stability, quality and S/N. The referencing technique can be used in cylindrical tubes and rectangular lab-on-a-chip type channels.

For samples in the flow, the ActiPix™ signal processing algorithm takes the individual pixel responses and averages the data over the time the sample takes to pass through the detector. This results in improved S/N ratio, without sacrificing spatial resolution
