Photothermal Therapy Research

Thermal imaging technology and our professional analytical software can help observe an object’s image and measure its temperature in tumor research.

Customer’s Challenge

Photothermal therapy is one of the rising stars in the cancer treatment research field. It usually employs near-infrared (NIR) light-absorbing agents to generate heat from optical energy, leading to the thermal ablation of cancer cells. Due to the nature of the research, the temperature and morphology of the given tissue or material need to be closely monitored.

A consistent and accurate measurement of temperature in a given area without tampering with the specimen is usually imperative.

The Solution

Thermal imaging technology can simultaneously observe an object’s image and measure its temperature. The FOTRIC 600 R&D thermal camera is capable of recording radiation videos that encapsulate a region of interest’s temperature fluctuation and morphological development over time. Coupled with professional analytical software FOTRIC AnalyzIR, it offers every piece of information a researcher would need.

The Result

With the help of analytical thermal cameras to monitor its temperature plot with time, researchers can inspect the thermal and physiological condition of their experimental subject and analyze their correlations. The photothermal therapy field has come a long way in tumor treatment.


FOTRIC 600 R&D station can better test the chip and discover the PCB design defects based on its advantages:

  • 20μm & 50μm macro lens and great sensitivity of 30 mK.

  • Full radiometric video streams with an adjustable frame rate of up to 30Hz.

  • Brilliant measurement accuracy: ± 2 °C or ± 2 %, whichever is greater

  • Powerful analysis software on PC: AnalyzIR
