News Bulletin : ADA News Bulletin February 2011
23 FEBRUARY 2011 Guidelines for Product News items BOOKING AND COPY DEADLINE First day of the month preceding publication. CONTENT AND ILLUSTRATIONS Priority will be given to new products and new presentations of currently available products which are newsworthy from a dentist's point of view. The text should be informational rather than commercial in tone with an indication of where the product may be purchased or further information obtained. Content will be subject to customary editorial scrutiny and discretionary expert comment. One colour illustration may be included. These should be high quality, colour photographs or transparencies and free of advertising text. COST A charge of $330 per entry covers space and normal production charges. POSITION Material will be included in the 'Product News' section of the News Bulletin and placed at editorial discretion. All entries will be grouped together in a prominent position. FULLY AUTOMATIC WITH BUILT-IN TOUCHPAD FOR USER IDENTIFICATION IN INSTRUMENT TRACKING The W&H Lisa 500 has continued to evolve, delivering high levels of sterilization and the confidence in infection control. With its Type B cycles, ease of use and state-of-the art technology, the latest Lisa 500 has a new appearance and new features, which take the 'guesswork' out of the sterilization process. The new LISA 500 AUTOMATIC features exclusive 'made-to-measure' cycles that automatically adapt the cycle duration to the mass of the load resulting in time saving for small loads, while ensuring large loads are properly sterilized. The new LISA AUTOMATIC also shortens drying with the patented ECO-Drysystem. By reducing the cycle duration according to load requirements, dental instruments are less exposed to heat, which increases their lifespan. In addition it also saves energy, making Lisa the green sterilization solution. The LISA AUTOMATIC also features the new integrated automatic traceability system with a load release option providing further safety while keeping the process simple. The on-board computer manages the entire sterilization process and features an easily accessible interactive touch-screen -- without the need of special software or an extra computer. At the end of the cycle, the user releases the load for use by entering their unique password directly on the touch-screen. When used with the LisaSafe label printer, individual dental instruments and the corresponding sterilization cycle can be easily linked to the patient file -- either manually or with a barcode scanner.

EASY UPGRADE TO HIGH SPEED LED FOR DAYLIGHT QUALITY LIGHT The new W&H ALEGRA HIGH SPEED LED TURBINES AND CONTRA ANGLES provide daylight quality LED light irrespective of which motor, tubing or coupling is used. W&H's self-generating 'Alegra' LED allows surgeries to easily upgrade to the best quality LED light with no additional investments in fibre-optic equipped tubing or special couplings. The built-in mini generator in the turbine enables LED illumination irrespective of whether the turbines are used with couplings, with or without inbuilt light sources in electric or air motors and tubing, or with fixed connections. The self-generated LED light is neutrally-coloured, has a larger illumination field than the conventional halogen light, is located close to the bur providing optimum illumination of the work area and has a long service life. The new range of W&H ALEGRA TURBINES are thermo-washable to ensure items are disinfected and sterilized with a data matrix code making it easy to identify handpieces and trace hygiene and maintenance processes.
