Macular pigment screener MPSII 

<< back to previous page

Elektron Technology launches Macular Pigment Screener MPS II.

MPS ll builds on the experience gained from 1.5 million patients to provide a faster, more reliable test. Elektron Technology has launched a new, easy-to-use macular pigment screener (MPS II) that can quickly identify those most at risk of developing age-related macular degeneration (AMD). Clinical data collected from 1.5 million patients is used to support its unique ‘centre only’ screening mode that overcomes the difficulty inherent in other approaches.

AMD is the loss of vision in the centre of the eye and is caused by high-energy, blue light from the sun damaging the retinal protective shield, or macula, over time. The MPS II measures the density of the yellow pigment within the macula that has an important role in absorbing the blue light.

The new MPS II has been developed with the benefit of clinical data previously collected with a first-generation screener. This has allowed us to remove the peripheral measurement and use the patient’s age instead as an estimate of the eye’s response. An accurate result can now be achieved just with a central test.“Trials of MPS II have shown that it offers a quick, consistent and repeatable screening tool that can identify those with a low macular pigment density and therefore at risk of developing AMD.”
