The new projects demonstrate Jenoptik’s precision optical system design capabilities and its commitment to advancing medical devices.

Jenoptik Light and Optics’ BioPhotonics group (Jupiter, FL) has recently won a number of new development orders in North America. These new projects demonstrate the company’s precision optical system design capabilities and its commitment to advancing medical device innovations.

  • The first order is for the design of the camera system for a next-generation fiber-optic medical device to be used in a robotic surgical instrument. The client is a worldwide supplier of medical equipment and selected Jenoptik for its expertise in microoptics, injection-molded optics, and imaging systems.

  • The second development project is for the design of multiple subassemblies for a Tier 1 eye care company’s next-generation ophthalmology surgery system. This customer leverages Jenoptik’s proficiency in illumination systems, fiber optics, imaging systems, microoptics, and lasers to provide key optical subsystems for their product.

  • For the third program, Jenoptik is teaming with a major worldwide supplier of medical laboratory equipment to supply a next-generation automated microscope for inline cellular analysis. The customer approached Jenoptik for its capabilities in microscopy, illumination systems, and imaging systems.

  • The fourth project is the continuation of a long-standing partnership with a medical diagnostics company specializing in real-time point-of-care (POC) serology tests. This customer came to Jenoptik because of its track record in solving complex optical system engineering problems. As a partner, the company helped to design and build a next-generation POC serology test system that is U.S. FDA-approved for use in COVID-19 diagnosis.

The incremental revenue after these engineering programs are completed and ramp into serial production is expected to exceed over $10.8 million annually, which will accelerate the growth of the BioPhotonics business in North America and worldwide.
