High resolution OCT for ex-vivo tissue. 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. OCT is a valuable bench tool for Pathologists who want to work smarter and more efficiently with their histological sections.

It’s improving pathology

Allows for multi-scale lateral resolution and field of view, which helps you more thoroughly explore your ex-vivo samples.
Saves time by helping you select fewer, more targeted histological sections.

It’s affordable

Costs a fraction of any other OCT system, allowing many pathology labs to now afford this technology.

It’s compact

About the size of a shoe box, so it won’t crowd your laboratory bench — or require a special cart.

It’s accurate

Delivers amazing depth and transverse resolution, allowing pathologists to generate precise image data.

It’s easy to use

Focus on science, not on setup. The software simple, so you can generate images quickly.

It’s compatible

Integrates with ours or any C-mount-equipped microscope (custom C-mount configuration at no additional cost)..
