Hamamatsu Photonics to Begin Shipping Next-Generation Micro PMT Devices for Point-of-Care Testing and Other Applications


11/15/2012 11:40:01 AM

November 15, 2012 -- Hamamatsu Photonics K.K. has announced that from the 1st November 2012, it will begin shipping samples of its new µPMT (Micro PMT) assembly to manufacturers of analytical and measurement instruments.

The µPMT is a next-generation, ultra-compact photomultiplier tube that is fabricated through the use of in-house semiconductor processes for MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) devices. It can be mass produced, is only 1/7th of the volume and 1/9th of the weight of the smallest conventional photomultiplier tube. The characteristics of this new µPMT will enable the development of high-precision measurement instruments for individual users, such as for point-of-care medical testing and environmental monitoring. The new µPMT assembly features a bialkali photocathode that is sensitive in the visible wavelength range and a divider circuit.
