Washington University School of Medicine Vision Researchers Use OcuScience® Ex Vivo ERG Adapter to Detect Infrared Sensors in Human Retina

December 30, 2014 Daniel Lindgren

The research team, lead by Vladimir J. Kefalov, PhD, associate professor of ophthalmology and visual sciences at Washington University School of Medicine published a breakthrough discovery in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) Online Early Edition that states that under certain circumstances the human eye can see invisible infrared light. This discovery was aided by the use of an electroretinography adapter that Kefalov’s lab invented. OcuScience® has commercialized the electroretinography adapter, providing a remarkable platform for ex vivo testing of retinal tissue. The Ex Vivo ERG Adapter functions to support the physiology of the retinal tissue. By...
