Heidelberg, Germany-Heidelberg Engineering GmbH recently launched two new products, OCT2, the next generation OCT module for Spectralis diagnostic imaging, and the Heyex picture archiving and communication system (PACS).

According to the company, the OCT2 module combines a 70 kHz A-scan rate with Heidelberg Engineering’s TruTrack high-speed active eye tracking.

The OCT2 module is now available as an option for all models of the Spectralis product family. In addition, all Advanced Systems, those purchased with the Advanced Upgrade Package or with the MultiColor module, can be upgraded to the OCT2 module.

The Heyex PACS software platform will support Heidelberg Engineering devices and can also integrate imaging devices of other manufacturers and diagnostic data into a centralized database. Heidelberg says this will allow eyecare practitioners to access, review, and compare all clinical images in one central application. The platform evolves from the Heyex (Heidelberg Eye Explorer) image management, networking, and device control software incorporated in every Heidelberg Engineering instrument.
