December 14, 2017, Barrington, N.J. — Edmund Optics® (EO), the premier provider of optical components, introduces a new Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) Imaging System from Lumedica, the OQ LabScope. This all-in-one, high resolution imaging system is now available from Edmund Optics. The OCT Imaging System is designed as an affordable alternative to more expensive and complex OCT systems. With an affordable price below $10K, the OCT Imaging System is now within reach of a new group of scientists, researchers, and educators, who may have previously found it cost-prohibitive.
OCT system rivals the performance of more expensive units
The OCT Imaging System provides competitive resolution, frame-rate, and power specifications at an industry-leading price. The tabletop device features a laser centered at 840nm, making it ideal for inspection at depths of up to 2.8mm in air and up to 2mm in tissue. The OCT Imaging System matches the performance of much more expensive units, with axial resolutions of 5µm and lateral resolutions of 15µm. Its small size, combined with an integrated computer and an intuitive graphical user interface, (GUI) makes it perfect for both laboratory or field use. An ideal tool for users of all experience levels, the OCT Imaging System is an excellent choice for biological sample imaging, sample characterization, and OCT education. An optional workstation package is available, which includes a scanner stand with a vertical stage, a large monitor, and a wireless mouse/keyboard combination to interface with the system. The OCT Imaging System is available for immediate delivery.
