Optical coherence tomography system

Cell³iMager Estier from SCREEN

Cell3iMager Estier is a benchtop, optical coherence tomography (OCT) instrument for label-free, non-invasive and real-time cross sectional (2D) and volumetric (3D) images of biological samples. The system uses NIR coherent light source enabling micrometer spatial resolution and large penetration depth (up to 1 mm). Specifically designed for true 3D imaging of Spheroids and Organoids as well as internal cavities and gaps in large tissues.

  • Non-invasive tomographic imaging of 3D cell cultures and tissues
  • High-throughput and high-resolution true 3D imaging
  • Quantification of size, volume, internal cavities (1mm thickness)
  • Compatibility with any standard cell cultureware
  • User-friendly analysis software
