¦Product FeaturesAdvantest has been developing photoacoustic technology since 2010. The company's independently developed sensors and electrical circuits permit high-speed measurement without exceeding the MPE (maximum permissible exposure) guidelines for exposure of skin to a light source. The new Hadatomo offers a measurement area of 4 mm x 4 mm x 3 mm (depth) and a maximum speed of 20 second / scan. Proprietary algorithms process the data obtained through dedicated software, and construct 2D and 3D images in quasi-real time. Moreover, the measurement process requires no setup beyond the application of ultrasound gel to the area to be measured. The tool's flexible arm enables measurement to be performed with ease in various environments. ¦Specifications System Model: WEL5100 Wavelength: 532 nm (less than the MPE for optical radiation) Measurement time: 10~80 s depending on the specifics of each case Measurement area: 4mm X 4mm X 3mm (depth) Dimensions (approx.): 540mm(W) x 545(D)mm x 1546mm(H) Weight: >110 kg Advantest is evaluating a range of prototypes in collaboration with researchers in plastic surgery and dermatology. The company expects to launch the new photoacoustic microscope in the Japanese market in October 2015 with a global roll out to follow. *This product is categorized as a Scientific Instrument About Advantest Corporation A world-class technology company, Advantest is the leading producer of automatic test equipment (ATE) for the semiconductor industry and a premier manufacturer of measuring instruments used in the design and production of electronic instruments and systems.
