About LightForm, Inc.
LightForm, Inc was founded in 1996 by Jeremy Lerner, to design, develop and bring to market, new approaches to spectral and hyperspectral imaging instruments
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: photo-luminescence, solar coatings, cyanobacteria detection, micro-plastics, nanoparticle characterization, spectral histopathology, spectral fluorescence imaging, and many industrial QC applications that require spectroscopic characterization of micron and sub-micron targets.
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.
