Because near-infrared light is invisible to the human eye, a special camera system is required to see it. A special illumination system is also required in order to keep visible and near-infrared light separated during data acquisition. Curadel has pioneered custom optics, illumination, and camera sub-systems that make FLARE® imaging suitable for open surgery and even minimally-invasive surgery. Curadel is continually innovating to make FLARE® technology more powerful. Our most recent open surgery system has the capability of seeing tumors only 10 cells wide!
