HS-UK has had another very successful Optrafair. We have had some great feedback on our exciting new products, particularly the Eidon true colour, wide-field confocal scanner and the Optovue iScan OCT.
Harlow, UK (PRWEB UK) 24 April 2015
Haag-Streit UK (HS-UK), the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard optometry and ophthalmic equipment, successfully unveiled a host of new products at Optrafair 2015 and enjoyed a very successful show.
The HS-UK stand was busy throughout the 3-day show. The newly-launched Optovue AngioVue OCT-Angiography (OCTA) system, in particular, generated a great deal of interest. The AngioVue is the only commercially available OCT-Angiography system capable of imaging and displaying function and structure of the ocular microvasculature, through a non-invasive procedure.
The new CenterVue Eidon confocal scanner was also ‘showcased’ at the event and HS-UK staff performed many demonstrations throughout the show. The Eidon is World’s first true colour, wide-field confocal scanner.
This year, HS-UK was very excited to be involved in the Optrafair Education Programme, which included workshops and lectures running alongside the main exhibition. HS-UK sponsored the successful ‘Advancements in high-resolution, wide-field imaging and OCT’ lecture. This was presented by guest speakers; Mr Giuliano Barbaro, Chief Executive Officer, CenterVue and Mr Serge Pierrache, Director of International Sales, Optovue. HS-UK also took part in the ‘Show and Tell’ equipment workshops, which were full to capacity.
A completely new-look HS-UK stand was unveiled and the space was used to showcase and demonstrate more equipment than ever before. These included; the Optovue iScan fully-integrated OCT and iFusion, which combines Spectral-Domain OCT and fundus imaging, in one compact instrument. The DRS retinal camera, Octopus 600 perimeter and BQ900 LED slit lamp also proved popular on the stand.
Sharon Mills, HS-UK Marketing Manager, said, “HS-UK has had another very successful Optrafair. We have had some great feedback on our exciting new products, particularly the Eidon true colour, wide-field confocal scanner and the Optovue iScan OCT. The AngioVue also caused a real ‘buzz’ on the HS-UK stand. We were also delighted to participate in the Optrafair Educational Programme this year. The ‘Advancements in high-resolution, wide-field imaging and OCT’ lecture was very well-received and the workshops were extremely busy throughout the 3 days.”
