    7. BitFlow Coaxpress frame grabber helps eye disorder diagnosis

      BitFlow Coaxpress frame grabber helps eye disorder diagnosis

      In order to maintain its optical clarity, the cornea has a complex and highly-specialized micromorphology of fibers, cells and nerves. A small malfunction in any part of this sophisticated system may lead to a range of degenerative, inherited or infectious blinding disorders. Taking into account that the largest corneal blindness burden falls on developing countries, cost-effective disease prevention through early diagnosis and treatment is preferable over surgical interventions. Unfortunately, there are drawbacks with current scanning technologies for cornea diseases. Confocal microscopy (IVCM), the state-of-the-art tool for cellular-resolution imaging of the cornea, requires contact with the eye, preceded by ocular anesthesia ...

      SC4500 supercontinuum source for mid-IR OCT imaging

      Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a well-established technique for non-destructive and non-contact three-dimensional structural imaging of complex samples. OCT systems are versatile, providing high spatial performance and high sensitivity at high imaging speed. For these reasons, OCT methods operating in the visible and near-infrared (near-IR) spectral ranges are the gold standard for various biomedical research and diagnostics. Advances and developments in mid-IR light sources and detection technologies have re- cently enabled OCT to move further towards longer wavelengths. Several reports on mid-IR OCT imaging have been published over the past few years, starting in 2018. OCT in the mid-IR spectral ...
