Diabetic Screening Approval for Topcon’s latest Retinal Camera


Topcon today announced that their latest Retinal Camera, launched a few months ago at Optrafair London, the TRC-NW400, has just been approved by the NHS Diabetic Eye Screening Programme (NDESP). The NDESP recommends that all programmes intending to purchase cameras for use in diabetic eye screening should select cameras from the framework agreement as this ensures they obtain the most suitable equipment and the correct maintenance contract.

In addition to the NDESP approval, the TRC-NW400 is extremely intuitive and easy to use, it is smaller than any other non-myd out there today with superb image quality. Besides to the traditional nasal, central and temporal fixation targets the TRC-NW400 can obtain a complete peripheral view with the nine fixation targets.


Furthermore, small pupil detection, high sensitivity and low flash intensity are all part of the array of available options within this instrument, making it simpler to produce excellent images and reduce any stress to patient during the scan.


“The TRC-NW400 marks a new benchmark in high quality, repeatable, true colour photography. Its surprisingly small footprint will revolutionise any team wishing to provide a fast and effective diabetic screening service certified with 3rd party software connectivity” commented Tim Cole, Clinical Product Specialist at Topcon GB Ltd and former NHS medical photographer.


This latest addition to Topcon’s non-myd Retinal Camera range has already proved to be a hit at the first ever Optrafair in London and the company is excited to bring this device to the forthcoming optical shows such as BCLA and Independent’s Day.
