Oxford Optronix pioneered the commercialization of fibre-optic oxygen micro-sensor technology back in 1998. Since then our OxyLite™ brands have become established the world over in biomedical hypoxia and ischaemia research, boasting in excess of 500 peer-reviewed journal citations with hundreds of units sold worldwide. 

2013 saw the culmination of a decade and half of continuous R&D with the launch of our third-generation tissue oxygen monitoring platform. Blending contemporary design, true plug and play convenience and the very latest in opto-electronic technology, our OxyLite™ Pro systems provide what is simply the most advanced, accurate and reliable tissue oxygen monitoring platform on the market. 

Our oxygen sensors are based on state of the art optical fluorescence technology intended for the quantitative measurement of the partial pressure of oxygen (pO2) and temperature in tissues, physiological fluids, cell cultures and other in vitro applications.  The technology employed offers several key advantages over devices based on polarographic technology, making our oxygen monitors much easier to use and ideally suited to oxygen measurements in the typical physiological range, as well as incredibly sensitive under conditions of hypoxia. 

Applications include cancer biology, angiogenesis, stroke and brain injury, vital organ and muscle tissue monitoring, flap monitoring, ophthalmology, wound healing, as well as dissolved oxygen monitoring in cell culture, bioreactors etc.

OxyLite™ and OxyLite™ Pro are intended for laboratory, industrial and research use only.
OxyLite™ and OxyLite™ Pro are NOT intended for use in human subjects/patients.
