HS-UK offer an enhanced LED illumination system for older slit lamps

15th June 2017 - HS-UK is offering the opportunity to enhance older Haag-Streit slit lamps, by converting them to utilise a 14mm LED illumination system.

Slit lamps in routine clinical practice primarily use tungsten illumination.  This can be problematic when the bulb needs to be replaced as it can lead to equipment down-time and the frequency of bulb replacements in demanding clinics can be costly.  LED illumination is energy-efficient, reduces the necessity to replace bulbs and has the added benefit of providing improved illumination of the anterior segment for clinical diagnosis.

Modern slit lamps now have LED illumination as standard, but the LED conversion can be performed on older BQ 900, BP 900, BM 900 and BX 900 Haag-Streit slit lamps. The BQ 900 can now also be upgraded at the same time to project a 14mm slit, opposed to the standard 8mm.

Sam Laidlaw, HS-UK Product Manager, said, “Converting a slit lamp to LED can benefit the user in a variety of ways.  LED will reduce the energy consumption by up to 60% and will last up to 150 times longer than a tungsten bulb.  It also significantly improves the illumination and in conjunction with Haag-Streit imaging products, provides significantly improved clinical diagnostic capabilities.”

An LED enhancement is quick and simple to perform, with very little downtime.  The process can be performed by a trained HS-UK Service Engineer, at the customer’s premises, in just a few short hours.

Ophthalmic Ultrasound & OCT-A Course

Crew Hall Hotel

Haag-Streit UK is delighted to be hosting the Ophthalmic Ultrasound & OCT-A Course on the 28th June 2017. This exclusive CPD course will be held at Crewe Hall Hotel.

The aim of this course is to provide attendees with an overview of Ophthalmic Ultrasound techniques and how to utilise these in daily practice. The course will also introduce Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography (OCT-A) and detail the clinical applications of the technology.

A series of hands-on workshop sessions will give attendees the opportunity to examine real patients and learn from experts in both Ophthalmic Ultrasound and OCT-A, using state-of-the-art equipment and software.

This Ophthalmic Ultrasound & OCT-A course will be delivered by Haag-Streit UK in conjunction with Mr Tarek El-Khashab, Ophthalmic Ultrasound Services & Research Lead, Mid-Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
