It’s OCT. Re-imagined.

Optical Coherence Tomography, better known as 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 not been affordable — until now.

Lumedica has re-imagined the OCT system, enabling researchers, innovators and educators to take advantage of OCT’s powerful imaging capability.

It’s affordable.

The OQ LabScope is only $9,995 — a fraction of what every other OCT system on the market costs. At this price, many laboratories could afford to
place OCT systems at multiple research facilities. And for an additional $495, we’ll include a fully configured workstation with a monitor, keyboard and mouse.

It’s accurate.

The OQ Labscope generates 512 x 512 pixel images, with axial resolution of 7 μm in air (5 μm in tissue), an imaging depth of 2.8 mm (2 mm in tissue), and a lateral depth resolution of 15 μm — matching the performance of OCT units costing three times as much. It’s compact. No other OCT has the footprint of the OQ LabScope. Roughly the size of a shoe box, including the integrated computer, our OCT system will not crowd your bench, or require you to buy special cart in order to use it. Even better, it can be easily stored when not in use.

It’s easy to use.

We want you to focus on science, not on setup. We kept the software simple, so you’ll be able to generate images quickly.

It’s customizable.

We’re scientists too. So, if you need the LabScope configured for a specific application, we’re happy to make adjustments.

Take your life science research further, faster.

Similar to ultrasound, OCT is an effective technology to look beneath the surface of samples without having to cut them open. But instead of sound, light is used to create a 2D or 3D tomogram, an image built up slice by slice.

OCT fills the imaging gap between microscopy and ultrasound, able to image a few millimeters deep into tissues wit 5 to 10 micron imaging resolution.

OCT is proven particularly effective in imaging eye tissues such as the retina and cornea, but can also be used to examine skin, teeth, and soft tissues throughout the body. The technology can offer unique capabilities for animal imaging ranging from mice and rats to rabbits, and even dogs, cats and swine.

Previously OCT has been a difficult technology to adopt since it may be priced out of the lab environment with system costs in the $50K to $150K range and requiring a large footprint.

Lumedica’s OQ LabScope brings a whole new source of image data to the life science researcher with a price point and form factor that makes OCT accessible for biology laboratories.

OCT: Important technology, vital research tool

OCT has become an established biomedical imaging technology along with MRI, CT, Ultrasound, and Microscopy.
It’s important to provide students with experience in this vital technology and its properties.
Students across a spectrum of science and engineering fields can benefit from learning about OCT.
Concepts to be learned include:

  • Fundamental physics – using optical interferometry to observe wave effects
  • Physiology – OCT can examine a wide range of biological tissues
  • Image and signal processing – converting interferometry data to OCT images illustrates several common signal
    processing methods
  • Material science – OCT can be used to monitor material integrity in response to dynamic loading
  • Lumedica’s OQ Labscope brings medical grade OCT imaging to a price point and form factor compatible with the
    undergraduate and graduate laboratory environment and budget.
