Powerful multi-point, analytic detail
The CellChek XL offers five fixation points for image capture at the center and four peripheral sites, allowing a more comprehensive look at the cornea. This is particularly valuable in cases such as DSAEK, ALK, or the presence of corneal dystrophies.
Location specific data samples
Unique to the CellChek XL, the CellChek™ software automatically records the location from which the data samples were acquired. One strong value of specular microscopy is to be able to assess and quantify change in the cornea over time. Without location data,trending is simply not accurate or reliable.
Advanced database features
Fully integrated database management system allows robust data mining and simplification of links to electronic medical records.
Using non-contact optical pachymetry, the CellChek XL provides corneal thickness measurements at all five data sample sites. Independent studies have shown this to be more accurate than traditional ultrasound pachymetry.
The only FDA 510(k) cleared specular microscope ("NQE")
Konan is the only company to have products FDA 510(k) cleared under "Specular Microscopes" Product Code NQE. Why accept anything less than the assurance of the FDA’s review for both imaging and assessment of the corneal endothelial cell layer, morphology of endothelial cells, and corneal pachymetry.
Flexibility of analysis methods for maximum usability
- Fully automated: minimized examination time of about 15 seconds
- Semi automated: operator can make subjective enhancements to auto-generated cellular overlay
- Center method: Konan's patented strategy is often used, due to high accuracy, by professional reading centers
- Flex-center method: high value for analyzing difficult images that contain a small number of cells in the sample
