Miltex introduces a new micro-sized apex locator that can be positioned near the oral cavity. The Mark VI apex locator is used within the field of vision of the operator to reduce fatigue. Dental assistants love it because it is so easy to set-up and the cables are very short, so less time is spent untangling and making space for a bulky equipment.
Utilizing sophisticated software, the Miltex Mark VI immediately converts analog signals to digital format and transmits data via short cables. The cables are 80 percent shorter than those used in other apex locators, thereby reducing electro-magnetic interference that can affect accuracy. It is powered by two lithium batteries available most anywhere.
The Mark VI can be clipped anywhere at a very short distance from the oral cavity. Five LEDs, distributed every half millimeter, show depth of progress:
** Green LED at 0.5 mm
** Red LED at biological apex, plus audible beep
** Flashing red LED beyond apex, plus audible beep at different frequency
In comparison studies, the Mark VI was found to be as accurate, or more than accurate as comparable instruments (study conducted by Pr. PIERRE MACHTOU, DCD DSO HDR FICD, Faculté de Chirurgie Dentaire, Université Paris 7-Denis Diderot). It accurately locates the apex in all canal conditions, including dry, wet and bleeding canals. The Miltex Mark VI offers a complete two-year warranty. For more information, call (800) 645-8000 or visit www.miltex.com.
