Wasatch Photonics MicroAngio, 2017 Prism Award Finalist

Prism Award Finalist 2017

LOGAN, Utah, and DURHAM, N.C.  – Wasatch Photonics Inc., a leading provider for gratings, spectrometers and optical coherence tomography instrumentation, is pleased to announce its new 3D MicroAngio technology has been selected as a Prism Award Finalist in the highly competitive Biomedical Instrumentation category. WP MicroAngio was created for high-resolution angiographic imaging for research and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) applications. Unlike other OCT angiography systems, the WP MicroAngio offers custom probe designs for each specific application, such as retina, brain or skin, for the highest quality images. WP software drives the system and provides both 3D images and one-click options for sampling, processing and motion correction for optimal results.

“MicroAngio stems from our legacy of technology-driven innovation, and our commitment to working with our customers to provide novel, applications-driven solutions,” said Dr. David Creasey, President at Wasatch Photonics. “We are delighted that it has been selected by the Prism Awards judges team, and we also salute EyeQue and RapidBiosensor for their achievement in this category.” 

MicroAngio technology allows visualization of blood vessels at microscopic level without using external contrast agents. The device, based on a variation of optical coherence tomography (OCT), creates a three-dimensional profile of the micro-vasculature. WP MicroAngio is designed to be used for medical research applications related to animal model imaging in ophthalmology, dermatology, oncology and other areas.

Using the MicroAngio technique provides an advantage over existing techniques as it does not require injection of external contrast agents that can interfere with the physiology of the sample. In addition, this new technique provides 3D localized information compared to the 2D data obtained from most other existing techniques.
