Columbia, SC (PRWEB) February 07, 2015
Dr. Ryan Priore, Chief Technology Officer of Multivariate Optical Element innovator CIRTEMO, will present a poster showcasing National Science Foundation funded research for advancing Multivariate Optical Computing for fluorochrome discrimination during the 5:30pm “Optical Diagnostics and Sensing XV: Toward Point-of-Care Diagnostics” session Monday, February 9, 2015 at Photonics West. SPIE Photonics West 2015 is the leading conference for biophotonics and biomedical optics, optoelectronics, microfabrication, and photonics.
“Fluorescence applications continue to be an exciting arena for CIRTEMO and our customers,” said Jason Williamson, CIRTEMO founder. “The funding that the National Science Foundation provided for this project opens a whole new realm of possibilities for life science and medical device applications.”
In addition to the poster session during the SPIE BiOS and Photonics West conference, CIRTEMO experts will provide a technology overview of how companies and end users can leverage CIRTEMO’s patented Multivariate Optical Element platform. The company will also host several free “lunch and learn” sessions and private briefings to discuss the new Multivariate Optical Element platform for fluorochrome discrimination throughout the week.
“The results of this work highlight the next frontier for using Multivariate Optical Elements for life science applications,” said Dr. Ryan Priore, Chief Technology Officer. “CIRTEMO’s presentation demonstrates how the design and fabrication of compressed detection MOE filter sets for detecting multiple fluorochromes simultaneously can outperform traditional narrow band pass optical filter methodologies for complex, spectrally overlapping applications from flow to imaging cytometry.”

CIRTEMO designs and manufactures patented optical filters, called Multivariate Optical Elements, which are encoded to detect/measure complex chemical compounds and attributes. CIRTEMO’s patented Multivariate Optical Element platform enables optical systems to perform high value detection and analysis at the speed of light, to a variety of industries.
CIRTEMO primarily partners with Optical Filter Manufacturers (OFMs) and Optical Component and System Manufacturers (OCSMs). The Multivariate Optical Element platform allows OFMs and OCSMs to differentiate their offerings with a well-protected IP position and enable their customers to tackle new applications that are not possible with traditional optical filters and coatings. CIRTEMO is also engaged with key collaborators working to develop Multivariate Optical Element-based systems for life science and other high value applications.
CIRTEMO is the second company founded to commercialize the patented Multivariate Optical Element platform discovered by Dr. Michael Myrick at the University of South Carolina. Prior to founding CIRTEMO, Jason Williamson founded OMETRIC in 2005. OMETRIC successfully commercialized the Multivariate Optical Element platform in a wide variety of large industrial sectors, including pharmaceuticals, chemicals, pet nutrition, mining, food and many others.
OMETRIC was sold to Halliburton in 2011. Although the exact sale price of OMETRIC is considered confidential and the transaction generated the largest royalty payment in history ever paid to the University of South Carolina ($2.7M).
