Under the multi-year exclusive agreement for cardiac optical coherence tomography (OCT), Axsun will provide advanced tunable lasers for LightLab's next-generation OCT imaging system.

"Swept source OCT enables extremely high-speed imaging with 10X higher imaging resolution than ultrasound", noted Dale Flanders, CEO of Axsun Technologies. "Axsun's unique tunable laser technology provides unprecedented resolution, depth, and speed of imaging in a compact and cost-effective product offering that is simply not available from any other source."

"This agreement is the culmination of the successful joint development effort undertaken by the companies to design a product unique for OCT imaging," explained Joe Schmitt, CTO at LightLab. "The Axsun tunable laser solution provides a powerful combination of high performance, compact footprint, manufacturability and cost. We feel that this technology will address the requirements of our customers better than any other available offering."
