||Research on biophotonics in human
At the Meluna International Biophotonics Laboratory we focus on the development of novel techniques extracting
biomedical information of living organisms. For that purpose an interdisciplinary technology platform is created,
dedicated to the role of biophotonics and system biology/ physiology in health issues.
Recording spontaneous photon emission from human subjects is a special field of biophotonics. The studies
demonstrate the potential usefulness of biophotons to extract biomedical information relevant for diagnosis
of pathophysiological states. At the laboratory extremely sensitive photomultipliers and CCD equipment for
different purposes are available.
Development of a personal health sensor
Personalized health approach is the basis of holistic medicine. Recent research is focusing
on objective methods for recording each person’s unique condition utilizing complex interactions
in biological functional systems.
Skin - Screening UV sensitivity
Recording of low spontaneous photon emission following exposure of a personís skin to
UV is used to quantify UV sensitivity. The sensitivity differs throughout the year and is
dependent from previous exposures as well as the antioxidant state of the subject.
