Michelson Diagnostics to Demonstrate Prototype Hand-Held OCT Probe at BIOS 09Michelson Diagnostics Ltd3, Orpington, United Kingdom
London, 19th Nov 2008 - Michelson Diagnostics has announced that it will demonstrate its prototype multi-beam Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) probe at the BIOS Exhibition at SPIE Photonics West, San Jose, 24-25th January 2009 (Stand 8731). More than one variant of the new probe will be launched later in 2009, including a dermal version (with X-Y scanning, to enable 3D mapping of skin lesions) and a version equipped with a rigid endoscope, suitable for oral applications.
We will be applying for a CE-mark for the product enabling sale for clinical use in Europe, in the spring 2009 time-frame said Jon Holmes, Chief Executive, followed by a 510(k) for the equivalent in the US market.
The unique multi-beam design provides double the image resolution (i.e. better than 10 ìm) available from conventional single-beam designs, resulting in crisper, clearer OCT images, showing more clinical detail.
We have a lot of interest from clinicians who have seen the excellent quality of images produced by our existing EX1301 multi-beam OCT Microscope said Dr Gordon McKenzie, Medical Director of Michelson Diagnostics, and they are very keen to try out the hand-held version as soon as possible!
