In the context of tissue imaging for cancer diagnosis, AQUYRE Biosciences 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
AQUYRE Biosciences 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.
