Codixx - Manufacturer for medical, pharmaceutics and diagnostics market

The CODIXX AG is a manufacturer that specialised in dichroic glass polarisers for the medical, pharmaceutical and diagnostics markets amongst other. The corporation is based in Germany and has customers on five different continents. Working close together with a net of distributors, CODIXX offers local customer service in countries all over the world.

Dichroic colorPol® polarisers

The company has more than 20 years' experience as a manufacturer of high quality polarisers, known worldwide under the trademark colorPol®. They are dichroic polarisers made of soda lime glass with silver nanoparticles embedded near both surfaces. Depending on the size and shape of the nanoparticles, a wavelength dependent absorption causes excellent polarization properties.

Unlike many other polarisers, colorPol® polarisers are available in a wide range of spectral characteristics covering UV (340-420 nm) to VIS, NIR and MIR (440-5,000 nm) wavelengths. High transmittance of over 98% (with anti-reflection coating) and contrast greater than 100,000:1 (50 dB) opens a broad field of applications.

colorPol® polarisers made of glass are a durable choice:

  • Thin like foil polarisers (0.2-0.5 mm, more options are realisable by laminating)
  • Resistant to UV radiation and most chemicals
  • ±20° wide acceptance angle for incident radiation
  • Operate in temperatures between -50°C and +400°C
  • High accuracy of polarisation axis to edge
  • Easy handling, cleaning and processing just like regular glass or wavers.


CODIXX covers a broad variety of standard polarisers and custom products. With colorPol® polarisers it is no longer necessary to match your application to a polariser. Instead, the polariser will be made to match your application by various customisation options.
Popular customisation options are:

  • Specific wavelength of maximum polarisation
  • Customised wavelength range within the physical restrictions of 340-420 nm and 440-5,000 nm
  • Various shapes and sizes from 1.0 x 1.0 mm² to 100.0 x 60.0 mm²
  • AR coatings as V-coating or BB-coating for individual wavelengths
  • Patterned polarisers with segments of different size, shape and number for distinctive polarisation axis or wavelength range
  • Mounted for easier handling and operation.

Quality assurance

State-of-the-art equipment is used to measure and record product and process quality. After every main production step, the product is carefully analysed for its quality. All data is documented and used to maintain the high-quality level of CODIXX production. CODIXX uses a DIN EN ISO 9001:2015 certified quality management system to continuously improve all processes to meet rising customer requirements.

Aware of the social and environmental responsibilities of a modern company, CODIXX takes great care to avoid conflicting material and resources. Waste material is recycled as far as possible and all products are REACH, RoHS and PFOS compliant.


Customers and interested parties are welcome schedule a meeting at the facility in Barleben near Magdeburg in Germany. In addition, our sales team with a selection of products is available for questions at exhibitions in North Amerika, Europe and Asia every year.
