BQ 900 LED Slit Lamp
Haag-Streit AG (Köniz, Switzerland) introduced the BQ 900 LED, a light-emitting-diode (LED)-powered slit lamp. According to company literature, the light spectrum of the BQ 900 LED matches that of wellestablished tungsten light. Due to the long lifetime of the LED illumination, bulbs do not need to be exchanged. The LED-illumination slit lamp is imaging-ready and combines slit and background illumination. Pivoting and fixed background illumination allows flexible adjustment of the light and ensures best details in all imaging applications on the slit lamp.
