Harlow, Essex (PRWEB UK) 15 August 2014
Haag-Streit UK (HS-UK), the leading manufacturer and distributor of gold-standard optometry and ophthalmic equipment, is pleased to announce the introduction of the new LED-powered BX 900 photographic slit lamp.
The BX 900 is the industry’s leading slit lamp-imaging device and is designed to assist Ophthalmic Photographers in their demanding profession. Manufactured by Haag-Streit Diagnostics, the BX 900 is not only reliable, accurate, and robust, but also features the latest imaging technology, as well as proven versatility and optical brilliance.
The BX 900 LED illumination head has undergone a complete re-design and now benefits from increased power in short wavelengths. This improves fluorescence, anterior chamber-examination, and increases the detail seen on the retina. The LED technology is already used in Haag-Streit’s BQ 900, BP 900, and BM 900 slit lamps, and provides the best detail for clinical diagnosis.
The new illumination head now contains a more powerful optimised flash tube and an ergonomic one-hand control for slit and background illumination. The head delivers independent light for the slit and background which can be continuously controlled by a single control panel, allowing users to adjust the slit and background illumination with one hand. The updated features are fully-compatible with EyeSuite Imaging Software and images of various formats can be activated via a dongle.
The new LED-powered BX 900 slit lamp is currently in production and HS-UK will be able to deliver the new product in late August 2014.
Sam Laidlaw, HS-UK Product Manager, said, “The new LED-powered BX 900 will provide users with improved views of the anterior segment and greater retinal detail. In combination with EyeSuite Imaging Software, the BX 900 will provide exceptionally high-quality images.”
