    2. Beyond Better Clinical Care: Optical Coherence Tomography's Economic Impact

      Beyond Better Clinical Care: Optical Coherence Tomography's Economic Impact
      The optical coherence tomography (OCT) industry has grown dramatically in its first 25 years, and while the positive effects on patient clinical care are the most important measure of OCT's success, its contributions to the economy in jobs, tax receipts, and healthcare savings are also noteworthy. The field of optical coherence tomography (OCT) has grown dramatically since its discovery in the early 1990s. The commercialization and growth of OCT ...

  2. About Tornado Spectral Systems

    Tornado Spectral Systems

    Tornado Spectral Systems designs, manufactures, and sells dispersive optical spectrometers and systems primarily for Raman spectroscopy and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT). Raman spectroscopy is a powerful analytical technique but Raman systems have traditionally been limited by a lack of sensitivity due to the input slit trade-off between resolution and throughput. Tornado’s proprietary high throughput virtual slit (HTVS™) design technique eliminates spectrometer slit losses while maintaining high spectral resolution, resulting in an order of magnitude improvement in sensitivity. Tornado's HyperFlux™ HTVS-enabled spectrometers and spectroscopy systems are the perfect solutions for lab and process Raman as well as many other spectroscopy applications. With higher sensitivity than ever before possible, they provide faster measurement for dynamic reactions and transient features, more accurate chemical identification and quantitation even with challenging mixtures and low concentrations, and low laser power operation in hazardous environments. Tornado's knowledge and expertise in dispersive spectroscopy has also been applied to SD-OCT, for which a spectrometer is a key component of the instrumentation. OCT-Prime is a small, robust, and high-performance solution ideally suited for ophthalmic imaging and other medical and industrial measurement applications.
