Public Profile

Optical Coherence Tomography -- OCT -- uses light to provide cross-sectional images of micro-layers of tissues and other samples. While OCT has many applications -- from scientific to medical to manufacturing -- the technology has been priced out of reach formany potential users. Lumedica has re-imagined the OCT system, enabling researchers, innovators and educators to take advantage of OCT’s powerful imaging capability. The firm's highly compact OQ LabScope is priced at a fraction of the cost of every other OCT system on the market making it affordable by many laboratories to place OCT systems at multiple research facilities. System is also accurate: generating 512 x 512 pixel images, with axial resolution of 7 ?m in air (5 ?m in tissue), an imaging depth of 2.8 mm (2 mm in tissue), and a lateral depth resolution of 15 ?m — matching the performance of OCT units far higher priced.
