Edmund Optics now supplies the OQ LabScope, a new all-in-one, high-resolution optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging system from Lumedica. With an affordable price below $10K, the system is designed as an affordable alternative to more expensive and complex OCT systems.
The OQ LabScope is a tabletop device that provides competitive resolution, frame-rate, and power specifications. Featureing a laser centred at 840nm, the system is ideal for inspection at depths of up to 2.8mm in air and up to 2mm in tissue.
The new OCT 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, makes it perfect for both laboratory or field use.
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.
