Respaldado pela ciência
Validated by 13 Peer-Reviewed Studies
Our patented Sensor Strips enhance patient comfort for consistent, reliable results – and you can rest easy knowing that this innovative electrode technology has been validated by 13 peer-reviewed studies with more than 600 patients.
Sensor Strips with the RETeval dispositivo
O teste PhNR do RETeval® handheld ERG and innovative skin electrodes allow for consistent, reliable assessment of retina function.
The device allows clinicans to perform ERGs more quickly, easily, and accurately, with patient comfort in mind. Eye care providers can help their patients better manage disease with functional assessment and objective data. With our normative database of healthy retina function and color-coded reporting, interpreting ERG results has never been easier.
Sensor Strips with the UTAS System
Non-invasive PERG, mfERG and EOG testing
Our Sensor Strip adhesive skin electrodes can be used in combination with the fully-loaded UTAS ERG System to offer a full range of ERG and EOG testing without corneal contact in any setting, including both clinical and research applications.
Compare Sensor Strips to Other ERG Skin Electrodes
|Sensor Strips by LKC
|Other Skin Electrodes
|All three electrodes in one strip
|All three electrodes have to be individually placed, taking more time and adding variability as the spacing between the electrodes can change
|All connections done with one connector
|Multiple connectors required
|Designed to slip off if cable is pulled so skin is not impacted
|Locking connector cable, more likely to pull the skin
|No skin prep is needed for flicker tests. Single flash tests benefit from Nuprep or alcohol wipes.
|Must prepare skin area under eye, on side of head, and forehead for connectors
|Adherence to Skin
|Soft gel pads adhere directly to skin
|Lid sensor and tape liner required
|Torsion-relief feature reduces chance of connector of cable pulling off of the skin due to patient movement or environmental factors
|No torsion-relief, electrode more likely to pull the skin
|Patient Eye Comfort
|Placed 2 mm below eye for maximum comfort
|Must be placed directly under lower eyelash
Our patented noninvasive adhesive skin electrodes improve patient comfort and shorten set-up time for ISCEV-compliant ERG testing with any device. Generate reliable, repeatable results for photopic and scotopic or dark-adapted ERG testing protocols without corneal contact to streamline assessment protocols and better manage disease.
At 2/3 the size of our regular strips, these small Sensor Strips are ideal for pediatric use or for any patient with a smaller face. These flexible adhesive electrodes move with the patient and are simple to place, allowing consistent, sensitive functional assessment of retinal health for patients of all ages.

Frequently asked questions
After prepping the patient’s skin with a cleanser such as Nuprep or Ocusoft, ensure the patient is seated comfortably and position the electrode at a slight angle underneath the lower lash line. Line the edge of the nasal side of the Sensor Strip up with the pupil and place the electrode 2-3 mm below the lower eyelid. Once the edge of the electrode is in place, follow the natural curve of the eye straight out toward the ear and adhere the remaining section to the patient’s skin. Avoid any trapping hair or eyelashes beneath the electrode.
Sensor Strip Electrodes are designed for single use only. However, if you are performing multiple assessments on the same patient, the RETeval device will allow you to scan the same Sensor Strip package barcode up to 4 times.
Yes! Our Sensor Strip Electrodes also come in a smaller size for children or any patient with a smaller face. This smaller size requires a separate electrode cable which can be purchased here.
You can order Sensor Strips in multiple sizes here.
The most common problem is skin preparation. Carefully and thoroughly prep the patient’s skin with a lid and skin cleanser such as Nuprep or Ocusoft and ensure that any excess gel or moisture is removed prior to applying the Sensor Strip electrode. If needed, you can also use a small piece of medical-grade adhesive tape toward the patient’s temple to adhere the electrode more securely.
LKC’s Sensor Strip Electrodes are completely latex-free.
Yes. You can purchase a DIN cable adaptor to use LKC Sensor Strips with another manufacturer’s ERG device. Results may vary by manufacturer.
Sensor Strip Electrodes have an estimated shelf life of up to 3 years from the manufacture date. When scanning the barcode to begin a test, the RETeval device will inform the user if the Sensor Strip is expired.
