Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is an emerging treatment modality in various areas such as cancer treatment and disinfection. The photosensitizer and oxygen have crucial roles for effective PDT treatment. The quantitative evaluation of singlet oxygen, which is a gold standard for monitoring effective treatment, remains as an important problem for PDT. However, low quantum yield and low life span of the singlet oxygen make the system expensive, unnecessarily large and unadaptable for clinical usage. In our study, a new mobile singlet oxygen detection system (SODS) was designed to detect singlet oxygen illumination during PDT and a new singlet oxygen phantom environment was constituted to test the designed SODS system. The singlet oxygen phantom environment composed of fast switching led driver & microcontroller and led light source (1200-1300 nm radiation). The elements of the singlet oxygen detection system are optic filter and collimation, avalanche photodiode transimpedance amplifier, differential amplifier and a signal processing block. According to the performance evaluation of the system on the phantom environment, the presented SODS can measure the illuminations at 1270 nm wavelength between 10 ns and 15 µs timespans. The results showed that the proposed system might be a good candidate for clinical PDT applications. Copyright © 2019 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
