Medical Optics

For seven decades, G&H’s innovative approach to optical component design has been key in advancing the performance and reliability of life science instrumentation for medical microscopy, diagnostic imaging, and laser surgery. We are recognized as a leading provider of advanced optics, fiber-optics, acousto-optics, and Pockels cells, targeting medical research, diagnostic imaging, and laser surgery applications worldwide.

As a vertically integrated supplier of optics, modules, and subassemblies, G&H is uniquely positioned to support scalable manufacturing, documented quality control, and security of supply. We further support medical innovation through our contract design and manufacturing capabilities by partnering with leading pharmaceutical and medical device innovators to develop lifesaving diagnostic, analytical, and drug delivery devices.

We Manufacture. You Innovate.

Through our Integrated Medical Technologies (ITL) business, we allow pharmaceutical and medical device innovators to focus on what they do best while optimizing their go-to-market times and development budgets. Our ITL business offers specialized contract manufacturing with a global footprint and with operations that are fully compliant with relevant standards and regulations for medical devices. ITL’s manufacturing expertise encompasses in vitro diagnostics, analytical laboratory instruments, medical devices targeting surgical guidance, drug delivery and monitoring, and organ transport. When your value derives from IP and your costs derive from manufacturing, contact ITL to see how we can optimize both. To learn more about ITL’s capabilities, contact us here.

Our technology and expertise in optical design and manufacturing have helped advance the life sciences in several key application areas.

A World Leader in Medical Optics

Optics for Medical Microscopy

G&H’s optics and acousto-optics have extended the forefront of microscopy for decades by enabling ever higher resolutions and more precise laser control. Our components were instrumental in the Nobel Prize-winning effort to extend optical microscopy resolutions to the nanoscale. Today they are enabling new advances on the cutting edge, such as digital pathology and the imaging of active neurons with laser-scanning confocal microscopes.

Lasers and Optics for Optical Coherence Tomography

G&H optics and expertise have helped drive development of optical coherence tomography (OCT) from the technology’s start. Today we support the world’s leading OCT systems manufacturers. Our unique ability to offer everything from fiber-optic components to subassemblies to full optical systems with embedded controls allows us to meet the demand for virtually any system design. The result for OCT instrument-makers is higher-performing, more cost-effective, and more reliable optical engines. The result for the medical industry is clearer 3D image resolutions, improved diagnoses, and better patient outcomes.

Greater Control and Reliability for Medical Lasers

G&H’s decades of expertise in the manufacture of acousto-optics, fiber-optics, and Pockels cells translate into improved control, greater reliability, and enhanced lifetimes for high-precision medical lasers used in a widening array of surgical applications. We work with leading laser system OEMs and medical equipment manufacturers to optimize patient outcomes in a broad range of surgical applications, including prostate surgery; scar correction; treatment of cataracts; removal of freckles, moles, and tattoos; wrinkle reduction; and teeth whitening. Our optics further provide surgical lasers with the precision and reliability needed for cardiovascular procedures.
