NIRSbox

The NIRSBOX device

PIONIRS unveils the most accurate TD-NIRS instrument available on the market.
The NIRSBOX is a compact, dual-wavelength, TD-NIRS system ideal for investigating and monitoring optical features in biological media. It encloses more than 20 years of research on Diffuse Optics and Single-photon Counting, with tailored electronics and optics components.

 

Designed to be a plug-and-play solution, all our efforts are devoted to making TD-NIRS broadly accessible to the world, while keeping the highest performance.

 

The device features high precision, negligible warm-up time and outstanding measurement stability.

 

 

PIONIRS software gives access to different levels of depth of TD-NIRS measurements, for either retrieving raw data (e.g. photons’ distribution of time-of-flight) or easily acquiring real-time human functional information like absolute hemoglobin concentration and tissue oxygen saturation.

 

PIONIRS accessories make the NIRSBOX adaptable to a vast variety of applications, empowering paramount research around the world. Ranging from recording cerebral functional activation to long-term monitoring of brain and muscles hemodynamics.

Stability

Less than 1% variation over more than 14 hours of measurement.

Accuracy

The accuracy has been verified trought the MEDPHOT assesment protocol for Diffuse Optics devices. 

Reproducibility

High reproducibility in retriving optical parameters (μa, μs’) on tissue-mimiking phantoms. Less than 2% variation over one month.

STAND ALONE OPERATION:  

  • USB 2.0 connection;
  • Plug it into your preferred platform, laptop or tablet; 
  • Stream your data real-time.

PHYSIOLOGICAL DATA INTERFACE:

Use PIONIRS software to easily control the device and live plot physiological parameters.

COUPLE IT WITH YOUR OTHER MEASURING DEVICES:

  • Input/Output synchronization signals (e.g. to couple with Diffuse Correlation Spectroscopy systems); 
  • Recover parameter like: metaboloic rate of oxygen extraction / blood flow and so on…
  • Have a look at the EU-funded VASCOVID project.

INTEGRATE NIRSBOX DEVICE INTO YOUR LIFE SCIENCE ACQUISITION PLATFORM:

  • Analog output signals, proportional to physiological parameters;
  • Add time-tags to your data stream, to highlight external stimuli and events.
