Takagi has created the slit lamp microscope 300XL, with our comprehensive technology and years of experience. Being equipped with both well-balanced optical performance and ease of use, 300XL provides a more comfortable examination and treatment environment. The 300XL marks the beginning of a new era in ophthalmic care.
22mm Inter-optical Path Distance
As a general rule, the longer the distance between the two optical paths, the better the stereoscopic view, but the narrower the binocular field of view in fundus examination. In reverse, the shorter the distance between the optical paths, the poorer the stereoscopic view, but the wider the binocular field of view in fundus examination.
With this in mind, we have achieved optics suitable for fundus examination by choosing the optimal 22mm as the inter-optical path distance.
The lock ring at the foot of the joystick easily locks and releases the longitudinal and lateral movement of the base unit.
Joystick Handle and Push button
New joystick design uses silver metallic and molded resin finish. The new ergonomic mechanism used in the push button has improved ease of operation.
Converging Binocular Tubes
300XL's binocular tubes with a 6-degree convergence provide easy binocular fusion, ensuring stress-free observation.
Advanced multi-coating is applied to all lenses used in the microscope for excellent optical performance; bright images free from flare and ghost are obtained, improving the quality of examination and treatment.
New Helicoid Mechanism
The diopter adjustment rings do not rotate with the eye caps, therefore the selected diopter's will not be accidentally changed during use.
In addition, the 12.5x high-eye point wide-field eyepieces enable observation over a wider field.
Designed keeping in mind Ease of Use
The 300XL's headrest serves not only as a patient's headrest but also as a finger rest for the examiner holding an indirect lens upon fundus examination. The finger rest feature is designed such that the examiner can hold the indirect lens steady. It also reduces arm fatigue from lengthy fundus examination.
Focusing Rod and Prism Tower with Tilting Mechanism; Both Standard Features
Tilting of the slit beam is crucial when viewing temporal or nasal peripheral fundus. 300XL offers a prism tower with tilting mechanism as a standard feature.
Exact focusing is essential for examination and treatment. To achieve exact focusing, precise diopter adjustment is required. The 300XL comes with a focusing rod as standard equipment. When the focusing rod is not in use, the lid can be closed to prevent eye drops or dust from getting inside the slit lamp.
Lower Chin rest Position
With the entire 70mm range of the chin rest elevation being lowered by 15mm, the 300XL can accommodate more diverse examines than existing models.
Longitudinal Travel of the Base Unit
The longitudinal movement range of the base unit is longer than conventional models (such as SM-70N) by 20mm. This will secure enough space between the patient and the microscope, allowing easier focusing and use of an indirect lens for fundus examination
Sophisticated Technology and Performance
300XL has been chosen by a leading ophthalmic laser manufacturer to be used as the slit lamp for their retinal photocoagulation laser system, a system that demands high optical performance. This is recognition of Takagi's high level of technical capabilities and the 300XL's exceptional performance.
