How it Works
Combining Chemiluminescence with a Plastic Speculum


To deliver diffused light directly to the area of examination, our specula devices rely on the power of chemiluminescence –an environmentally and patient-safe light source that creates no heat. For an in-depth look at the science behind chemiluminescence, visit our technology page.

Activating the light insert to begin an examination is incredibly easy. Simply squeeze the light insert with your thumb tips to snap the small ampule contained inside, then shake the insert to further accelerate the light reaction.

This reaction, and the light it creates, will last for at least 15 minutes delivering ideal diffused light for OB/Gyn examinations. After the exam is complete simply discard the entire device as medical waste. No disassembly is needed.
