* Slitlamp on which BG-04 can be mounted is only Takagi’s 300XL.
* BG-04 can be used in combination with various types of analog cameras as well as Takagi’s TD-1 and TD-2.


BG-04 adopts a high-brightness LED, separately from the halogen lamp to be a light source of the slitlamp.

The arrangement of the On/Off switch and light intensity control on the microscope arm enhances operation.

The light source can move from side to side so that the slit tower does not block off the background light.
