We are bringing Lock-in Thermography into the Life Sciences Industries.

Lock-in Thermography for Life Science Applications

Lock-in thermography is a method, where energy is introduced into a system and the resulting temperature raise is observed by a thermal camera or a sensor. The amplitude of the temperature change or the phase shift, when the temperature is transported in analyzed material, can be used to obtain qualitative and quantitative data about very different materials. One very important advantage of Lock-in thermography is its capability to detect very small temperature differences.
We are using different types of energy sources (e.g. LEDs, Laser light, electronic heating sources) to analyze materials with a focus on life science applications.


In the life science industry a lot of processes require a control of the process and a quality assessment. An automated and simple analysis facilitates many processes and guarantees a functioning process flow.

Lock-in thermography finds its applications in very different fields

Small Volumes

Liquids are required in a lot of biological
processes but also in many industrial processes. We have developed a patent pending process for analysis of small volumes (e.g. in pipette tips, cuvettes, small vessels).

Air Quality

One important factor for air quality is the presence or absence of particles in air. Our method can be used to detect and monitor particles (e.g. break wear, carbon black, metal abrasion).

Thin Films

A homogeneous thickness and the absence of defects are important for a high quality coating. With our method we can monitor the quality of a coating by measuring during the process and identifying changes of the coating.
