DL system (AdDent, Inc., Dunbury, Connecticut) uses a "blue-white light-emitting diode (LED)" to detect abnormal tissues.
Adjunct based on tissue reflectance (ViziLite, ViziLite Plus, Microlux
)--Several studies have investigated the benefit of using the ViziLite compared to conventional visual examination alone.
Artificial lesions of lobster and mollusc shells were created with a Microlux
Variable Speed Drill Press (MicroMark) with a digital depth finder and 3/32-in.
Japanese-made lenses are coated with Microlux
ETE, allowing for maximum light transmission.
All teeth were examined for cracks or fractures, as well as to confirm a single apical foramen using transillumination (Microlux
Transilluminator, Adent Inc, Danbury, CT) and a dental operating microscope (Global Surgical Corporation, St Louis, MO).
DLX eliminates the visual interference inherent in overhead cameras.
GenIII night-vision scopes can operate at 10 microlux
ambient-light levels, as compared to the 0.01 lux levels of GenI devices (a lux being, very crudely, about equal to the light produced on a surface by a candle a foot away).
announces that the Microlux
2 Transillumlnator has just received the Reality 5 Star Award.
Two systems using chemiluminescence developed for the oral cavity are ViziLite[R] Plus and MicroLux
The Platinum Nighteater series features riflescopes with Grade A lenses coated with Microlux
