CellChek® D | D+
Designed to improve patient outcomes, CellChek D+ redefined specular microscopy in Eyebanking.
It was quickly and widely adopted by many of the world’s finest Eye Banks.
CellChek D and D+
Donor corneal analytics for eye banks and corneal surgeons
Now featured in Cornea June 2018 Supplement: Current and New Technologies in Corneal Donor Tissue Evaluation Comparative Image Atlas. Especially check out Chapter 5 “Wide-Field Ex Vivo Dual Imaging Microscopy.”
New "Donor Enhanced" Imaging SystemCellChek D+ features a patent applied for “Donor Enhance” imaging system that provides remarkable views of endothelium, intra-stomal structure, and the epithelium. The range of new information from which to make better clinical decisions is spectacular (pun intended): blood cells, fungus, rough keratome cuts, dead cells, epithelial anomalies. Never have we had this view of pre-implanted material. Corneal surgeons are finding this information to be illuminating in helping to understand graft success and failure.
Broad overview but with large multi-sample analytic areasCellChek D and D+ feature a new finder feature with digital measuring / documenting tools.
Patented Cellular Analysis MethodsAll Konan specular microscopes feature the Center Method of analysis. Center Method is mentioned in FDA panel minutes as being the “gold standard” and is used by virtually every professional reading center for independent assessment of corneal endothelial analytics.1 Unlike full-auto assessments, the Center Method provides high precision and repeatability for specular images in which relatively small continuous areas of visible cells are visible.
The Flex-Center method is the third tool for advanced stage diseased corneas in which only a very few number of cells are visible. With this semi-automated, perimeter-count method, again, high precision and repeatability is achieved. Only Konan provides the rich set of analytic tools for reliable assessment of the entire spectrum of corneal conditions.
It is not surprising that Konan is the global gold standard in corneal endothelial assessment.
