The Biopsy Scanner

High resolution

imaging device for sub cellular-level biological tissue imaging

non-invasive & non destructive

real-time optical biopsy

FFOCT

(Full-Field Optical Coherence Tomography) produces images showing the tissue architecture without sample processing or staining

Dynamic cell imaging

produces images showing the intracellular activity data without sample processing or staining

Technology's immediate benefit

In the context of tissue imaging for cancer diagnosis, LLTech anticipates the following benefits:

the full-field OCT technology employed by the Biopsy Scanner is the sole technique to offer axial resolution (i.e. in the vertical, z-axis) of 1 µm, which gives the best image clarity and precision.

(rapidity of diagnosis): the technology currently enables image capture on a 1 cm² region of tissue in 1 minute, thereby enabling immediate quality control of biopsies.

in the event of complex biopsies that require hospitalization and/or anesthesia.

that allows reuse of the biopsy: no need for dyes, contrast agents or tissue freezing.

Analysis can be carried out remotely

LLTech products can be employed directly. No calibration or complex set-up procedure is necessary. User training is completed in under half a day.

Acquisition and viewing software

The acquisition software was developed in collaboration with Ecole CentraleSupélec.

Intended Use Statement: The Light-CT Scanner is intended to acquire, store, retrieve, display, and transfer optical coherence tomography images of unsectioned excised surgical tissue for review by physicians to assist in forming a clinical judgment. The Light-CT Scanner is not intended as a primary means of diagnosis. The Light-CT Scanner is certified for research use only.
