About LightForm, Inc.

LightForm was founded in 1996, by Jeremy Lerner M.R.S.C., to design, develop and sell Hyperspectral Imaging instrumentation to researchers in the bio-sciences and industry.

About LightForm, Inc.

LightForm was the proud recipient of three National Institute of Health, SBIR grants.  These awards funded the development of the PARISS® Analytical Hyperspectral Imaging system.

PARISS was formally introduced to the market at the Pittsburgh Conference in 1998.

PARISS can now be found in routine use in bio-research, medical, physics, chemistry, and industrial laboratories throughout the world.

Uses include: Nanoparticle characterization, SPR and “darkfield scatter,” spectral histopathology, spectral fluorescence imaging, color measurement of micro-sized objects, and many industrial QC applications that require spectroscopic characterization of sub-micron targets.

Founder highlights:

  • Co-edited a special issue of the journal Cytometry covering “Spectral Imaging” (Lerner, Lockett and Zucker)
  • Holds nine patents
  • Chaired or co-chaired ten international conferences
  • Authored or co-authored over 40 peer reviewed and other publications
  • Researchers that use PARISS have made the front cover of four journals.
