Meeting highly specific needs in the medical sector

If you work with optical components in the medical sector or biotechnology, you’ll know how vital it is to achieve the highest levels of quality and precision. At Knight Optical, we have over 26 years experience in designing, manufacturing, and testing optics to the exacting standards your industry demands.

We understand the importance of accuracy and reliability in systems for medical diagnostics and analysis. Our rigorous testing procedures – using advanced metrology equipment and skilled QA inspectors – ensure all our products satisfy even the most specific requirements. This applies to bespoke custom parts or large production runs. Every single optical component we supply is proven to perform.

Our optics are used in many aspects of the medical sector and biotechnology, including endoscopy, fluorescence imaging, infrared temperature sensors, intense pulsed light (IPL), medical imaging, microscopes, optical coherence tomography, spectrometry, therapeutic lasers and thermography.

We are typically providing these different medical sectors with a wide variety of optical components and additional services including optical assembly and alignment. Some of our most popular products include:

  • Light Guides – manufactured from BK7 or equivalent, UV Fused Silica and Sapphire
  • Plane Front Surface Mirrors with Ion-Plated Silver Coating
  • Interference Bandpass Filters for the Visible range (400nm – 700nm)
  • Dichroic Longpass Filters
  • Concave Lamp Reflectors
  • Plane Front Surface Mirrors with Enhanced Aluminum Coating
  • Colour Glass Longpass Filters

Knight Optical understand that once an optical element to a medical instrument is approved, it is very difficult to change, unless this element becomes obsolete. We understand that supply is always needed and we ensure we will always hold your item in stock.

We will also provide you with all the information you require for your documentation. We can assure you that there is transparency on your ordered items including a metrology report and a certificate of conformance to quality standards. We are able to provide you with as much information as required, to ensure that legal obligations are met, allowing your instrument to be approved for use as soon as possible.

Whether you want us to manufacture optical components based on your technical drawings, or need us to design parts or systems to your brief, we have the resources to make your concepts a reality. We always start by understanding your particular needs and expectations, and work to ISO 10110, BS 4301-1991, and MIL-PRF-13830B, to produce optical components and sub-assemblies at the correct quality, on time and within budget.

At Knight Optical we value every one of our customers, and therefore you will be assigned a dedicated account manager, who cares as much about your project as you do. They make the process from getting a quotation to receiving an order, as smooth as possible. We go above and beyond ensuring that your purchasing experience is as stress free as possible.
