OCT System Solutions to Accelerate Your Research

A Wasatch Photonics OCT system gives you rapid access to powerful, non-contact 3D imaging technology for your research. Designed around our industry-leading gratings and best-in-class OCT spectrometers, these OCT systems provide high-resolution imaging of subsurface structure at depths up to 5 mm. We’ve put hundreds of hours of design, testing & imaging into our systems so that you can put more time towards your research.

Optical coherence tomography provides non-contact imaging of surface morphology and subsurface structure at micron-level resolution for accurate, quantitative analysis of structure in tissues or materials. Our systems use SD-OCT because it provides high resolution, ultra-clear images at lower cost than SS-OCT. In addition, our unique OCT system design offers the convenience of a turnkey instrument with the flexibility to configure two key components – the scanning arm probe and software control.

Our team is available to guide you in the selection of the right OCT system for your research. Explore our image gallery to see the possibilities, or send us your samples for a personalized evaluation. Contact us today.

An 800 nm OCT system is ideal for applications requiring high-resolution imaging such as retinal imaging, cellular imaging, and material inspection. These systems can resolve structures as small as 2 µm.  A 1300 nm OCT system allows deeper penetration in the tissue or material under study, influenced by index of refraction and scattering. With imaging depths of up to 5 mm (in air), these systems are widely used in applications like dermatology, anterior segment imaging, and silicon inspection.


We have the most compact OCT probes on the market, designed for ease of use in laboratory settings. Our innovative optical design & robust scan electronics deliver aberration-free imaging for best resolution and SNR, and features an integrated color camera for registration. These probes can be mounted for stability, or used handheld to bring the probe to the sample.

WP OCT Probes


We’ve developed powerful software and SDKs to help you acquire, process, and visualize data from our systems quickly and easily. Whether you need to collect images with our OCT system or rapidly develop your own customized OCT software, we have the tools to help you collect images faster.
