Photonics for the Environment
Algae may be silent, but what if the twinkle of light it emits whispers?
At Hamamatsu Photonics, we’re conducting research in bioassays using delayed luminescence from algae, with technology for measuring faint light from living organisms playing a central role. Through this research, we hope to assess the toxicity of chemical substances produced by industries and households, and thus contribute to creating a sustainable society in which a careful balance is maintained between the food chain and the ecosystem.

Photonics for Medical care
How can light help in the treatment of medical conditions?
In one undertaking aimed at answering that question, researchers at Hamamatsu Photonics are developing technologies that use laser light at a wavelength easily absorbed only by blood thrombi, and not by blood vessel walls or other structures, to selectively dissolve thrombi inside blood vessels.

Photonics for Bioscience
How far can light go in explaining the mechanisms that govern life?
Circulating Tumor Cells (CTCs), which number one in ten-millions of leukocytes in cancer patient's blood, could possibly be deeply involved in cancer metastasis, and are a focus of close attention by researchers in biology, medicine, engineering and optics around the world. At Hamamatsu Photonics, we’re conducting research using our own proprietary technology, in which we hope to detect CTCs and reveal the mechanisms of cancer metastasis.

Photonics for Health
Could food play a role in slowing down aging? Or in preventing cancer or adult-onset diseases?
At Hamamatsu Photonics, we’re studying the impact of food on the human body by developing systems that measure the body’s level of oxidative stress, which is a factor in many diseases. Each day, we conduct research into new tools that will be used to promote good health.

Right now, the earth's populations are facing a multitude of challenges such as global warming and biodiversity issues, that are begining to upset the balance of life itself on a global scale. At Hamamatsu Photonics, we use the term Life Photonics to describe research and development topics that embrace sustainability as a core value. We conduct our activities with an emphasis on diverse viewpoints and mutual interactions among indibidual engineers and researchers, so as to ultimately ensure a lasting future for every form on life on earth.
