The Odyssey XF Imager is certified as a Class 1 laser product. Hazardous laser radiation is not emitted outside the instrument. Radiation emitted inside the Odyssey XF Imager is confined within protective housings and external covers. A series of safety interlocks ensures that laser beams cannot escape during any phase of user operation.
