Part of a 160 device deal with Luxottica's OPSM for optometry stores in Australia and New Zealand
Retinal imaging specialist Optos has announced it has delivered its first shipment of its Daytona desktop imaging device.
Daytona is the next generation of Optos ultra-widefield retinal imaging technology.
It has been scaled down to accommodate smaller office spaces and also includes new auto-fluorescence capabilities.
It also offers "plug-n-play" installation, a modular robust build-design to simplify product support, image review capabilities and electronic image storage options.
The first shipment of the new devices is to meet a contract to supply 160 Daytona devices to Luxottica's OPSM optometry stores in Australia and New Zealand during 2012, announced earlier this month.
The US Food and Drug Administration approved Optos' next-generation ultra-wide field retinal scanning device in August of last year.
Dunfermline-based Optos said it hopes to create a new market and begin to replace larger standalone machines, many of which are leased to customers.
Roy Davis, chief executive of Optos, said; "We are pleased to announce shipment of our first devices on schedule.
“Following the unveiling of Daytona in October, we have seen growing demand for the product and over the coming months we will be increasing our manufacturing capacity accordingly.
“We believe Daytona represents an excellent growth opportunity for Optos and we look forward to providing a detailed update at our interim results presentation in May.”
