Delivering high value accurate analytics for materials researchers and manufacturers

Powerful. Accurate. Real-time.

Time is money in manufacturing and material properties testing. The MARC® resin calibrator from BlueLight Analytics is a laboratory grade National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) referenced instrument. It enables researchers to achieve accurate, reproducible, clinically-relevant measurement of the energy delivered to activate dental materials. Engineered to deliver the efficiencies of plug ‘n’ play desktop processing, it delivers immediate high value analytics and savings.

Reproducible Results. Clinical Relevance.

BlueLight Analytics’ MARC resin calibrator is unequalled in its capability to quantify the clinical performance of curing lights, and the effectiveness of their directions-for-use for distance and depth through light-cured dental materials. With unmatched ease and versatility, the MARC resin calibrator allows researchers to easily deliver specific energy doses to dental materials and quickly quantify light transmission through the samples using custom desktop software.

Benefits to dental researchers and manufacturers.

BlueLight’s MARC resin calibrator and custom software enables researchers to quickly and accurately:

  • Characterize the light spectrum reaching the top and bottom surfaces of the sample
  • Identify issues related to beam uniformity and light diffusion over distance
  • Control light delivery (on X, Y and Z axis) with reproducible precision
  • Measure spectrum, rate and amount of light delivered during ISO Depth-of-Cure (ISO 4049) testing
  • Measure real-time transmission through various shades and increments of materials
  • Quantify the optimal energy requirements of each light-cured resin composite


BlueLight Analytics LCU Reports™

BlueLight Analytics LCU Reports™ is an all-in-one independent source providing comparable performance data for the most common curing lights on the market. These lights are compared using standardized quantitative evaluations: total power output, spectral radiant power, irradiance, beam profile heating effects and ISO compliance. These scientifically valid, independent reports can be cited in research studies and marketing materials, enabling accurate performance.
