"The examination light EL 3 from HEINE supports and considerably brightens up the working day of a doctor. The LED illumination of the EL3 offers an absolutely homogeneous, bright and shadow-free illumination with true color rendering for a precise diagnosis.
An ideal illumination is often much more important and useful as one might think: When removing stitches, the generally blue sutures can be precisely distinguished from the wound crusts. In this way, suture material cannot be forgotten. In addition, the course of superficial vessels can be better assessed, which is for example important for surgical procedures or aesthetic injections.
Due to the bright, shadow-free illumination the edges of early stages of skin diseases as well as of invasive white skin cancer can be diagnosed preoperatively and be marked better. When distinguishing between different skin lesions, which often look very similar in dermatology, an optimal illumination is also a great help in making a diagnosis.
The examination light offers a good movability and a great flexibility during examinations. Due to the good positioning, difficult locations such as the oral cavity can be examined comfortably. In addition, the EL3 can be easily cleaned thanks to its clear design without grooves.
