  • Biomedical Analysis (e.g., protein labeling, DNA sequencing, peptide probing, immunoassay and flow cytometry).
  • Graphics and Digital Printing (e.g., computer-to-plate, digital offset press, thermal printing plates, digital color proofing and laser marking).
  • Light Emitting Diodes (e.g., materials for fabrication of OLED and PLED devices)
  • Microelectronics (e.g., photo-resists and thermo-resists).
  • Optical Data Storage (e.g., CD-R and DVD-R).
  • Photosensitizers (e.g., antihalation, and silver halide photographic films).
  • Security (e.g., banknote, checks, government documents, high value goods labels, hidden barcodes and security inks).
  • Sensors (e.g., chemical sensors, bioanalytical sensors and gas sensors).
  • Solar Control (e.g., automotive glass, agriculture films, laser protection and optical filters).
  • Welding (e.g., laser welding plastics)
