Wasatch Photonics launches WP OCT software platform as enabling tool for OCT system development
Wasatch Photonics announces the launch of its WP OCT software platform as an enabling tool for research and OEM development, with the power and flexibility to speed OCT system development. This suite of SDKs, sample GUIs, and turnkey application software facilitates imaging speeds of up to 250 kHz with minimal software development effort, while retaining the flexibility to customize user interface, algorithms, and analysis. Availability in C++, C#, Matlab, and Labview environments further enhances the versatility of this platform, as does compatibility with both Camera Link and USB 3.0 data acquisition protocols.
OCT is one of the fastest growing imaging technologies, with wide ranging applications in both the medical and industrial space as a primary and complementary diagnostic. The technology has been widely adapted in ophthalmology as the standard of care. It is anticipated that several next-generation surgical, diagnostic, metrological, and material processing systems will benefit from the high-speed and high-resolution capabilities of OCT imaging.
As a leading OEM provider for optical coherence tomography (OCT), Wasatch Photonics actively invests in technologies and capabilities to expedite the development process for OEMs launching integrated OCT products. This wide variety of fields use an array of different software and hardware platforms for prototyping and production.
As such, the WP OCT software platform allows flexibility both in choice of software environment as well as in the hard accessories that OCT developers can use. SDKs are available for seamless integration of applications developed in C++, C#, Matlab and LabView environments, and allow the developer to transition from prototype to production using the same base set of libraries.
On the data acquisition side, the software platform will allow communication with both Camera Link and USB 3.0 data acquisition protocols. It will provide high end computational capability for efficient data analysis using powerful yet flexible GPU platforms, compatible with the fastest OCT spectrometers available on the market.
This is a major step in the company’s mission to increase the use of OCT as a primary and complementary diagnostic in a variety of applications by reducing the barriers for OCT development and integration. In the words of Nishant Mohan, OCT Division vice president, “We see the power of OCT being utilized in several new areas, and appropriate software development tools are essential to speed up that progress. This software platform is a critical step in reaching our mission of OCT for all.”
Wasatch Photonics offers a comprehensive line of modular and turnkey OCT imaging products for researchers and OEMs. See the new WP OCT software suite live during the 2019 Photonics West Conference in San Francisco CA. For immediate information, contact the Wasatch.
