In early January this year 2021 Photonics Online was promoting a webinar on Biophotonics applied to point of care. This Webinar was presenting the use of optical approaches outside specialized laboratories that require easy-to-use optical instruments with a high technology readiness level for the user. The application of spectroscopic methods to address biomedical research has grown due to advancements in instrumentation and an enhanced cross-disciplinary dialogue between spectroscopists and end users like clinicians.
Photonics devices are used in Biophotonics and here are some of them sensors, lasers, and spectroscopy devices. Microscopes have been a tool for observing the biological material for ages.
Canada's life sciences and bio-manufacturing sector is a priority for the current government that goes beyond responding to COVID-19. This is an important component of Canada's plan to build domestic resilience and improve long-term pandemic preparedness It is also a growing sector that supports thousands of good, middle class jobs.
