Enabling Precision Dosimetry in PDT and Phototherapy — PTCal150

Accurate dosimetry is essential to ensure effective and safe phototherapy and photodynamic therapy (PDT) treatment. The PTCal150 sets the benchmark for accurate measurement of spectral irradiance of all PDT and phototherapy light sources in hospitals as well as in clinical research.

The PTCal150 spectroradiometer has been designed with research-grade optical components, thus enabling highly accurate patient exposure data and offering total confidence in phototherapy radiometer calibration.

The device enables determining warm-up characteristics and gaining insights into irradiance temporal variation to guide the application of PDT and phototherapy.

Superior stray light performance is ensured over a very wide dynamic range by the compact double monochromator that includes the precision cosine-corrected input optic, thereby enabling precise measurement of LED, tungsten filament, xenon arc, metal halide, dichroic, and fluorescent light sources alongside full-spectrum lamps.
