Historically, researchers in biomedical optics have needed to develop their own instrumentation when precise polarization measurements were needed. The AxoScan and the AxoStep Mueller matrix polarimeters perfectly suited for laboratory environments, and they allow researchers to immediately move past the 'instrument development' phase and focus on the efficacy of their testing results.

Our products are being applied in a wide range of biomedical and chemical testing applications.
