Daylight Solutions Receives CLEO 2014 Grand Prize for Spero Laser-Based Infrared Microscopy Platform

Daylight Solutions, Inc., a leading manufacturer of molecular detection and imaging solutions in the mid-infrared, has received the CLEO 2014 Innovation Award Grand Prize for Spero, the world’s first laser-based infrared microscopy platform.

CLEO, the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics, is the premier conference in the area of optics and photonics and brings together world-class researchers and industrial experts from around the globe. The annual Innovation Awards recognize companies “that have made major contributions to advancing the field of optics and photonics through recently launched products and services.”

Spero is the first laser-based infrared microscopy platform and represents a breakthrough in high-performance spectral imaging. Combining the latest high-power, broadband quantum cascade laser (QCL) sources and a new family of high-NA, wide-field objectives, it significantly outperforms existing infrared microscopes, such as FTIR, in traditional metrics, including spatial resolution, speed, signal-to-noise ratio, and field-of-view, while also enabling new functionality such as live video absorbance contrast imaging and rapid sparse wavelength data collection.

This award follows two other awards for Spero at the Pittcon 2014 conference, where the microscope was named “Top Pittcon Product” by Strategic Directions International, Inc. and was also nominated for the Pittcon Editors Awards.

Paul Larson, President and COO of Daylight Solutions, will accept the award at the CLEO Plenary Session Tuesday, June 10 in the San Jose Civic Auditorium in San Jose, California.

A live demo of the Spero microscope will be on display in the Daylight Solutions booth (#2125) on the CLEO exhibit floor, June 10-12.
