Update January 25, 2018
Tokyo, January 25, 2018 - Mr. Satoshi Hirano, President & CEO of Topcon Corporation, is proud to announce that its DRI OCT Triton Series has received 510(k) clearance from the FDA. Topcon Medical Systems, Inc., a subsidiary of Topcon Corporation, will start to release it in the US.
The DRI OCT Triton uses a 1 micron, swept source as a light source. The multimodal instrument incorporates the diagnostic power of Swept Source OCT including anterior segment with a retinal camera for color, red-free, FA and FAF imaging.
The Triton Series provides comprehensive imaging and increases diagnostic capability in your practice. It has gained a high reputation in Japan, Asia, Europe and the Middle East.
The Triton is expected to meet the needs of the large US market. It is the first multimodal Swept Source OCT approved by the FDA and is equipped with a normative database. Topcon Medical Systems, Inc. will display it at the following upcoming shows : SECO on February 28th in Atlanta, GA, American Glaucoma Society on February 28th in New York, Vit-Buckle Society on March 22nd in Miami, FL, and Vision Expo East on March 16th in New York.
Topcon is expecting substantial sales increases after launching the DRI OCT Triton in the US.
The DRI OCT Triton Series provides the following features:
- A 1μｍ wavelength for high penetration of ocular tissue. This makes it easier to observe deeper pathology in the retina even through media opacities.
- Swept Source technology which decreases noise in longitudinal tomographic images and provides uniformed images from vitreous to choroid.
- A high scanning speed of 100,000 A-Scans/second that reduces motion effects of the eye and a non-visible light which makes patient fixation easier.
- A multimodal instrument that can capture the following high quality retinal images that are clinically required.
The DRI OCT Triton uses the advanced technology of Swept Source OCT but also incorporates built-in retinal photography for true color, FA, FAF and red free imaging. The multimodality and diagnostic capabilities of the instrument makes it the ideal instrument for researchers, large clinics and individual practices.
