Harlow, Essex (PRWEB UK) 21 October 2013
Haag-Streit UK (HS-UK), the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard optometry and ophthalmic equipment, is pleased to announce the launch of the New Generation Tango from Ellex.
The Tango is the industry’s leading Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) and YAG laser. It provides SLT and photodisruptor capabilities in a single, advanced laser system. Its SLT mode delivers an advanced, non-invasive surgical approach for stimulating the generation of healthy trabecular meshwork cells and managing intraocular pressure.
This New Generation Tango now features a new cavity and energy monitoring system which ensures precise and consistent energy output, enabling close adherence to the industry-standard SLT treatment protocol. It also incorporates a new AIMM Mode-Mix aiming beam with homogenous beam profile. The system delivers a crisp, uniform aiming beam at even the lowest intensities and enables simple, accurate positioning of the SLT pulses during treatment.
The New Generation Tango also boasts a large-range offset (YAG mode), for both posterior and anterior, ensuring precise predictable placement of the photodisruption plasma.
Jacqui Kenyon, HS-UK Product Manager said, “The New Generation Tango features a new custom-built optical system which is optimised for use in the anterior segment. This provides a more natural stereoscopic view and brighter, clearer illumination of the meshwork, All are combined with a shallow focusing depth. It allows users to visualise the trabecular meshwork in more detail, and to perform SLT, capsulotomy and iridotomy procedures with greater accuracy than ever before.”
