In vivo skin analysis by means of LC-OCT

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

If you are interested in using this method in one of your projects or if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. Please contact our CR&S team.
