The agreement includes distribution of Spectrolights unique Wavelength Selector and complimentary products for the North and South America markets, through OptoSigma’s website and sales channels.

Within the agreement, Spectrolight will manufacture and supply state of the art Wavelength Selector modules, both manual and electronic, in addition to a white light source and supporting adaptors that will enable independent use or integration for fluorescence microscopy applications. All of these products will be available from OptoSigma’s newly enhanced website and items will be stocked in California at OptoSigma’s headquarters.

"We are very proud to have found in OptoSigma an experienced and reliable partner for the distribution of our standard optics and systems. With this partnership, Spectrolight has the chance to become a member of a unique and rapidly growing online platform. Together we aim to provide a one-stop-shopping experience for our customers, i.e. the ability to purchase a wide range of high quality photonic products quickly and easily on one platform", says Kevin Kim, Director of Business Development.

"We are very excited to have created this strong partnership with an innovative company such as Spectrolight. We believe these wavelength selector products are highly unique and advantageous for a variety of applications in the photonics industry and academic research, with some of them being in hyperspectral imaging, microscopy, spectroscopy, and machine vision. These product additions give our customers the unique advantage to tune their light to specific wavelengths without the need for using or changing filters. “The options of manual vs. electronic, in addition to various wavelength options, provide a complete suite of solutions for a variety of applications,“ says Dan Denison, Director of Sales & Marketing of OptoSigma.

About Spectrolight​

Spectrolight was founded by a group of scientists and engineers who had often experienced frustration with the limitations of commercially available photonic devices and components. As former users, this team set out to deliver cost-effective photonic tools that offer better functionality, greater ease of use, and superior reliability and lifetime. We produce optical and optomechanical components for manipulating, generating and detecting light. Our goal is to provide end-users with a new solution to tunable wavelength filtering that is comparably advantageous to existing technologies. Our most notable achievements with our Flexible Wavelength Selector (FWS) devices have been published in the field of polarimetry imaging and bioengineering of photoreceptors. We aim to meet the needs of various existing and emerging applications including but not limited to microscopy, spectroscopy, machine vision, and hyperspectral imaging that would benefit from our wavelength selector devices.
