Access to better consumer technology gets better, faster and cheaper over time.
Why shouldn’t the same hold true in medicine?

Accelerate Innovation with Affordable, OCT,
Optical Coherence Tomography.

$9,995 OCT System with Scanner (no PC required)
+ $495 Workstation Package includes Monitor, Keyboard & Mouse

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

SETUP A DEMO

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.

Bio-Engineering

OCT is a critical concept for students focused on biomedical and pharmaceutical testing and research.

Biomedical Engineering

Learn how to build custom OCT imaging systems to meet a specific scientific or commercial need.

Engineering

OCT can deepen students’ understanding of integrated optics, electronics, photonics, and mechanical systems

Electrical Engineering

OCT is a valuable concept for students studying electronics, photonics, signal processing, Fourier transforms, programming, hardware development

Biology

Thanks to its ability to display up to the first 1-2 millimeters of surface layer, OCT is a valuable tool for studying live tissue (in vivo).

Physics

OCT helps you students to better understand concepts like interferometry, photonics, imaging processing, Fourier transforms.
