The Ellex Tango™ provides selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) and YAG capabilities in a single, advanced laser system. Featuring a proprietary dual-mode laser cavity, the Tango™ ensures efficient delivery of laser energy and is life-tested to deliver 400,000 shots.
With the Ellex Tango™ SLT/YAG combination laser you can instantly switch between SLT and photodisruptor modes at the touch of a button – maximising treatment options and ensuring better patient outcomes.
The Tango’s SLT mode delivers a gentle, non-invasive approach for stimulating the generation of healthy trabecular meshwork cells and managing elevated intraocular pressure in glaucoma patients. Featuring the industry’s fastest repetition rate at 3 hertz, the Tango™ allows you to perform quick and highly accurate SLT treatment customised to each individual patient’s response.
The Tango’s YAG mode provides optimised, ultra-low energy optical breakdown, which is ideal for meeting new challenges in posterior capsulotomy procedures. You and your patients will benefit from a lower risk of lens pitting, more efficient tissue cutting with fewer shots and delivery of less cumulative energy.
1. Optimised for Anterior Segment Viewing
The quality and design of the Tango’s slit lamp optics are optimized for anterior segment viewing. Featuring Galilean converging optics with a 16° stereoscopic angle, the Tango™ provides a more natural stereoscopic view combined with a shallow depth of field for precision focusing.
2. IOL-Friendly Photodisruption
In YAG mode, the Tango’s state-of-the-art YAG laser technology provides you with more consistent optical breakdown, which is ideal for meeting new challenges in posterior capsulotomy procedures. You and your patients will benefit from a lower risk of lens pitting, more efficient tissue cutting with fewer shots, delivery of less cumulative energy, and faster procedures.
3. Better Performance Over the Long-Term
The Tango’s solid-state Q-switch, which is made from the industry’s finest components, is life-tested to deliver over 400,000 shots without any significant reduction in energy performance or beam quality.
4. Faster Treatment
The Tango™ features the fastest repetition rate in the industry at 3 hertz, which allows you to perform both YAG and SLT procedures quickly and accurately, even on challenging patients.
5. Pinpoint Precision
With a tolerance range of ± 8 μm, the Tango’s fine, two-point focusing system in YAG mode makes it easy for you to ensure that the system is always in focus, and that energy is delivered where you intend in relation to your target.
6. Accurately Position Optical Breakdown
In YAG mode, a continuously variable posterior offset control adjustment (from 100 to 350 microns) provides optimum flexibility.
7. Designed to Maximise Your Workflow
Ellex has integrated the laser and slit lamp for greater efficiency and reliability, as well as for improved ease of use. The Tango’s compact, efficient design provides you with additional working space and convenient, simultaneous access to the patient and laser controls.
