The preclinical OCT solutions provide insight into eye disease research, while the clinical OCT systems serve as an aid in diagnosing pathological conditions. Each system is non-invasive, contact-free, and helps detect and monitor morphological changes of ocular tissue.
OCT from Leica Microsystems
With the acquisition of Bioptigen in 2015, Leica Microsystems offers OCT imaging systems for clinical ophthalmology and preclinical research.

About Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)
Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an imaging technology with applications in biology, medicine, and materials investigations. In a clinical environment, OCT has revolutionized the clinical practice of ophthalmology by providing 3D anatomic information. In preclinical research, OCT facilitates early stage research into pathology and drug discovery. This non-invasive technique is used to detect and monitor morphological changes of ocular tissue, in particular retinal layer thickness, which may aid in the diagnosis of certain pathological conditions such as glaucoma, age-related macular degeneration (AMD) or diabetic retinopathy. In this Sciecne Lab topic you can find basic information about OCT, articles with application examples, case studies, and links to selected publications.
