What are the outstanding features of Leisegang Colposcopes?
Leisegang colposcopes are considered by gyneacologists worldwide as GOLD Standard for colposcopes.
They some outstanding features making them unique:
Leisegang colposcopes, the Gold Standard in the industry, are easy to handle giving minimum fatigue to the clinician because, through precise German engineering, they were specifically designed that way.
All Leisegang scopes are designed with hand crafted convergent binocular optics, angled along natural pathway with two objective lenses, one for each eye and presenting an instantaneous and natural 3 dimensional effect.
This is an essential feature because during a colposcopic exam, the clinician has to change frequently between visualizing with the naked eye and through the colposcope.
The multiple magnification colposcopes made by Leisegang have only 3 steps of magnification. The reason is that upon the request by the gynecological profession, we have made certain that the observed images register in the memory of the clinician at a distinct scale: Therefore our magnifications differ in steps of 2 to 1. (3.75X/7.5X/15X)
Almost all other manufacturer?s colposcopes utilize parallel optics for stereoscopic viewing.It is parallel within head of scope, through one objective lens. This can cause optical distortions as well as considerably increases the fatigue of the clinician, because they have to do the adaptation work to compose a 3-Dimensional image with their minds eye from two separate parallel pictures.
Leisegang colposcopes use LED lighting system achieving highest possible illumination intensity. It produces more light per Watt than halogen, do not change their color tint when dimmed, have a long useful life ( more than 20,000 hours) and outperforms tungsten halogen and xenon.
The lifetime of a an LED is more than 20,000 hours which is equivalent to approximately 20 years of operation assuming the mean operating time is 4 hours per day. Consistent use of a LED system instead of cold light over this time period results in a savings of roughly 2,500 EURO.
Leisegang is currently the only supplier of colposcopy systems with an ultra bright spotlight that achieves 45,000 LUX at a working distance of 300 mm.
All Leisegang standard colposcopes can be upgraded by photo video adapters and cameras to photo video colposcopes.
A micromanipulator for connecting to a CO2 Laser can be used.
Long life time:
The lifetime of Leisegang colposcopes is between 20 to 30 years. To purchase a Leisegang colposcope is along-term investment.
