New article about the neuromonitor BabyLux
The Neurophotonics Journal has just published a paper by the developers of the hybrid diffuse optical neuromonitor BabyLux. As a partner of the European project BabyLux, PicoQuant's Managing Director Rainer Erdmann is co-author of this paper which gives a thorough characterization about the performance of the device. The neuromonitor has been developed to be employed in neonatal intensive care units for the noninvasive, cot-side monitoring of microvascular cerebral blood flow and blood oxygenation in preterm neonates.
The project goal is to reduce the risk of brain lesions in extremely preterm babies. The core opto-electronic components necessary for this novel instrument are provided by PicoQuant.
