The Zenalux Biological Tissue Spectrometer (Zenascope™) is an ultraviolet spectrometer that achieves quantitative optical spectroscopy in turbid media and enables a physician to non-destructively evaluate tissue composition in real time. The system is a specialized, real-time, diagnostic device that shines white light on opaque target media and then measures and analyzes the reflected signal. The device uses standard spectroscopic measurement hardware, proprietary software and patented algorithms to achieve rapid, quantitative and non-destructive analysis of important targeted endpoints. This novel approach enables a host of new applications for visible spectroscopy in non-ideal, scattering conditions.
