TECHNICAL INFORMATION DOWNLOAD

Main features:

DROPtest® is CE certified as a Medical Device for the following applications:

  • Ocular surface diagnosis
  • Tonometry
  • Contact lenses evaluation
  • Detection of:

  • Abnormal tear production
  • Infections
  • Break-Up Time measurement
  • Dry eye
  • Thin tear meniscus
  • Corneal integrity loss
  • Blocked tear ducts
  • Epithelial abrasions
  • Conjunctival integrity loss
  • Ulcers
  • Traumas
  • Corneal Oedema
  • Foreign bodies detection

The exclusive formulation and its reusable drop dispenser make DROPtest a better alternative to fluorescein product for the following advantages:

  • Interacts with tear film
  • Highly tolerated
  • No stains
  • No irritation
  • No false positives
  • No tonometer stains during the exam
  • Reusable
  • No preservatives
  • Sterile and operating room viable

Features

  • Yellow-green fluorescent properties
  • Straw-yellow transparent solution
  • pH 7 ± 0.3
The device comes in two 5-vial reusable blisters, each containing 0,5 ml of solution.
Soak the conjunctival sac with 1-2 drops. Illuminate the ocular surface with cobalt light to show riboflavin adsorbent tissues.
Riboflavin toxicity was not detected. If used excessively, a minimum amount will accumulate in tissues, while the remaining will be briefly expelled. There were no adverse event reports with riboflavin use. Riboflavin can induce urine color change, if taken in large amount: this shouldn’t be considered a problem, since riboflavin does not cause adverse events.
DROPtest shouldn’t be used in cases of proven intolerance or hypersensibility to its components. Newborns treated for hyperbilirubinaemia could be sensitive to a riboflavin excess. DROPtest can be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
DROPtest must be conserved away from direct sunlight, at a temperature not over 30°C
