We would like to inform you that with the innovative LC-OCT method we can now offer you a procedure that combines the advantages of confocal microscopy and optical coherence tomography and thus offers new possibilities in the non-invasive in vivo deep analysis of the skin.

LC-OCT stands for ‘line-field confocal optical coherence tomography.’ The laser-based method produces two- or three-dimensional images and can optionally be operated in vertical or horizontal measurement mode, combining the images acquired into a 3D stack.

The technical specifications at a glance:

  • Resolution: 1.3 µm x 1.3 µm x 1.3 µm
  • Layer size: 1.2 mm x 0.5 mm x 0.5 mm
  • Depth: ~ 400 µm
  • Field size: Manual
  • Measuring direction: Horizontal, Vertical

Excerpt of possible parameters:

  • Stratum corneum thickness
  • Epidermis thickness in 2D or 3D
  • Dermo-epidermal junction
  • Collagen
  • Melanin
  • Keratinocyte distribution
