Microlux DL

Product Description
When detected early, the oral cancer 5-year survival rate increases from 57% to 81%.* Detecting the earliest stages of oral cancer is often difficult, but with AdDent’s Microlux DL system, clinicians can find abnormal lesions quickly and easily. Microlux DL is an affordable oral cancer screening tool with a fiber-optic illuminator that is designed to enhance dental examinations of the oral mucosa. The autoclavable diffused light guide includes a high output LED. Battery operated with a 40-hour battery life, this tool is portable and easy to use. The Microlux DL exam is fast, painless, and inexpensive. Used in conjunction with a traditional visual and tactile examination, clinicians perform the exam to increase discovery of abnormal lesions found on the soft tissues of the oral environment. Most Microlux DL exams can be completed in less than 3 minutes without discomfort or inconvenience to patients. This multi-purpose instrument also transform into a Diagnostic Transilluminator by changing light guides. Its other light guides can visualize root fractures and interproximal caries, measure gingival pockets and recession, and illuminate hard to see areas with a lighted mirror. Microlux DL comes with a patient information card for the waiting room, a mouth map for the doctor, and a consent form that the patient must acknowledge and sign if treatment is refused.




Handheld Microscope Identifies Cancer Cells with New Technology Developed by UW Researchers
