FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Mississippi State University’s NIR dyes technology, which allows for deeper tissue imaging through absorbance in the near-infrared radiation region. This technology offers numerous benefits such as low quantum yield, strong photoacoustic (PA) signal, good biological compatibility, high photostability for PA applications, and multiplexed imaging with an aza-BODIPY reference dye, detection at a depth of 4 cm, and good molar absorptivity.
These highly desirable dyes have a wide range of applications, including biological imaging, laser technology, and photo- and electrochromic applications. Furthermore, they can be functionalized for fluorescence and PA imaging. The global bio-imaging market is expected to experience significant growth from $5.27 billion in 2020 to $16.68 billion by 2028.
Mississippi State University’s NIR dyes technology is ready for collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.). Is your company the right fit?
