23 January 2020: SPOT-RVC

FEMTOprint SA

FEMTOprint, in collaboration with the EPFL and the Opthalmic Hospital Jules-Gonin in Lausanne, Switzerland, present a novel surgical tool for retinal vein cannulation - SPOT - A Safe Puncture Optimized Tool for Retinal Vein Cannulation.

Human body puncturing is a common surgical process having associated risks, namely overpuncturing, where the puncture tool overshoots its target, potentially causing death to the patient. Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is one of the most common retinovascular diseases, affecting approximately 16.4 million people worldwide, resulting from hypercoagulability, low blood flow or thrombosis in retinal veins. Current treatments only focus on symptoms mitigation rather than targeting a solution for the root cause, obliging the patients have repeat treatment every 3-6 months.

The goal of the Safe Puncture Optimized Tool (SPOT) is to safely inject clot-dissolving drug into the retinal veins, as close as possible to the occlusion location, without irreversibly damaging tissues. This advanced handheld miniaturized medical device for safe surgical puncturing contains a thin cannula for the treatment of RVO. The main novelty relies in the capability of stability programming. This allows the stroke of the tool to be adjusted mechanically to a fixed value and be decoupled of the operator displacement.

Whit the concept of programmable stability, the surgeon modifies the mechanism strain energy as opposed to imposing direct displacement which is the case for standard bistable mechanisms. The system cancels hand tremor and stabilizes the needle after venous puncture for reduced trauma and prolonged infusion. A microfluidic channel is integrated into the needle tip for direct drug injection. The system includes handheld micromanipulator, shaft, and puncture mechanism.

Liquids are pumped into the veins through a complex microfluidic channel which starts on the back of the glass device and ends at the tip of the needle. From a syringe, the liquid goes into a small glass capillary hold in position within the handle and soldered on the back of the device on a specific connector. The main part of the microfluidic channel runs on different levels in the bulk of the device and is produced with a patented technology known as ZIPPER which consists on laser reflow of material to seal buried structures within glass. The second part of the channel, which is 22mm long and directly connected to the needle, is suspended and flexible like a small capillary since it must follow the motion of the needle without disturbing its dynamics.

We performed experiments using the vasculature of chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) of 12-day fertilized chicken eggs. 20 eggs were used in total to complete 40 cannulation attempts by experienced-surgeon and non-surgeon operators. The experimental procedures were approved by the Institutional Review Board. The task in experiments was to cannulate the target vein on the CAM and maintain the needle inside the vein for 45 seconds after the event of puncture, under the visual control of saline solution injection in the absence of bleeding.

Retinal vein cannulation is a demanding procedure, and its feasibility is currently limited by the challenges in identifying the moment of venous puncture, achieving cannulation and maintaining cannulation during drug delivery. In this study, to address these problems we designed, developed and used a Safe-Puncture-Optimized-Tool (SPOT), designed to cure the retinal vein occlusion, dissolving the thrombus by safely retinal vein cannulation. It is a compact and precise device, monolithically printed out of glass by a femtolaser with sub-micron resolution, integrating mechanical and fluidic functionalities with high-precision, reliability and repeatability. The microneedle and the micro-activation mechanisms allows the surgeon to insert and maintain the cannula into the retinal vein for a prolonged infusion of antithrombotic drug, without trauma on the vasculature.

23 January 2020: FLIMERA Widefield CMOS-based TCSPC FLIM Camera

HORIBA Scientific

New camera for microscopic research inside cells and detection of biomarkers for disease diagnostics.

Developed by Glasgow-based company HORIBA Jobin Yvon IBH, the FLIMERA is a CMOS-based FLIM camera that enables fluorescence lifetime data obtained via TCSPC in each individual pixel. It uses a 192 x 128 array of single photon avalanche diodes (SPADs), each with its own time to digital converter (TDC), for up to 24,576 simultaneous lifetime measurements with a time range from 200 ps to 200 ns nominal with 4096 time bins (<50ps per bin).

The HORIBA FLIMera imaging camera acquires the time decay of laser-excited fluorescence at video rate speeds, compared to conventional fluorescence microscopes, which measure the intensity of light to obtain contrast.
This innovative TCSPC camera offers the possibility of sample analysis with up to 5 exponential decays for each individual pixel, for complex and sophisticated molecular analysis. A dynamic video feature allows real time video rate (30fps) FLIM to be recorded or streamed to a HDF5 file format, facilitating the ability to study FLIM dynamics of biologically important events.

The camera has a “C mount” to attach to a microscope and accepts TTL synchronization signals up to 100MHz. The frame rate will be dependent on the photon flux and the processing ability of the control computer, but 30Hz FLIM images have been demonstrated.

The FLIM camera uses EzTime Image, part of HORIBA’s EzTime software for instrument control, data acquisition and analysis. Together, they perform Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging on different microscope-based platforms, and provide more information than traditional EMCCD or intensified fluorescence imaging cameras to elucidate complex and dynamic molecular interactions exploiting the sensitivity of TCSPC fluorescence techniques.

“FLIMera is another groundbreaking technology from our TCSPC center of excellence in Glasgow, Scotland, which is in its fourth decade of TCSPC systems and components development, said Cary Davies, Global Product Line Manager, Fluorescence Division of HORIBA Scientific.
