THE NEW STANDARD FOR DIAGNOSING DRY EYE DISEASE
i-Pen® Vet, the world’s first, hand-held, point-of-care, solid state electronic diagnostic testing device to detect
and indirectly measure the elevated tear film osmolarity levels associated with mild, moderate and severe KCS.
NEW TEAR OSMOLARITY TESTING DEVICE
▪ Quantitative measurement of osmolarity
▪ Quick and simple point-of-care test
▪ Reproducible, accurate and reliable results
▪ Uses Single-Use-Sensors (SUSs)
HOW TEAR FILM OSMOLARITY WORKS
The i-Pen® Vet Osmolarity System is a solid state electronic diagnostic device for the quantitative
measurement of osmolarity (concentration of dissolved salts in solution) of tears in normal and
Keratoconjunctivitis Sicca patients.
The i-Pen® Vet Osmolarity system, used in conjunction with the i-Pen® Vet Osmolarity Single Use Sensors (SUS), provides a quick and simple method for determining tear osmolarity of the tissues bathed in the tear film of the orbital tissues such as the papabral conjuntiva. After several seconds of contact with the eyelid tissue, the i-Pen® Vet will display a quantitative tear osmolarity test result on the liquid crystal display (LCD) in units of mOsms/L. No calculations required. The i-Pen® Vet Osmolarity Test utilizes an impedance measurement
to provide an indirect assessment of osmolarity of the tear film of the eye.
The i-Pen® Vet is used as an in-practice screening device both for patients presenting with dry eye symptoms and for all pre and post-surgical patients. In addition, the i-Pen® Vet is invaluable asset for monitoring the progress of KCS treatment therapies.
The i-Pen® Vet is for professional in-vivo diagnostic use only.
