August 2, 2005, Dunedin, FL--Ocean Optics has expanded its optical-sensor coating services to provide OEMs and product developers new solutions in creating proprietary accessories for chemical-sensing applications.

According to the company, clients can now develop and manufacture a variety of custom optical oxygen and pH sensor accessories including fiber optic probes, cuvettes, Petri dishes, microscope slides and more. The added services include the licensing of Ocean Optics proprietary oxygen and pH coating technologies, custom sensor coating development, and contract manufacturing services.

The expanded services provide several ways in which a client and Ocean Optics can partner to create custom optical sensor accessories:
--Ocean Optics can supply its proprietary optical sensor coating technologies to a client through a license agreement. Ocean Optics manufactures the coatings and applies them to virtually any media specified by the client.
--A client can supply its proprietary indicator to be included in an Ocean Optics coating. Ocean Optics would then manufacture the coating and apply it to media specified by the client.
--A client can supply its proprietary coating and indicator to Ocean Optics. Ocean Optics will apply the coating to media specified by the client. This option is available through a contract manufacturing agreement.
--Ocean Optics can research and develop a proprietary coating for a client. This option is available through engineering and/or research fees.

The services may also include costs associated with the type of sensor material; the surface area of application; and the time required to apply the sensor material to a substrate.

The Ocean Optics Sensors Division, established in 1999, developed the company's line of FOXY Fiber Optic Oxygen Sensors and pH optical sensors. The group has created sensor technologies including sol gels and fluorescence- and absorbance-based indicators.
