Quantel 308 Excimer System Beats the Xtrac and Pharos lasers!Â The 308 Excimer Monochromatic Lamp System made by Quantel-Derma has been proven to have the same efficacy as its Excimer laser counterparts.Â The biggest breakthrough in targeted phototherapy is now in the palm of your hand.Â Quantelâ€™s 308 Excimer targeted phototherapy system is a handheld device that emits monochromatic 308nm energy and studies have shown it to be just as effective as its laser counterparts.Â Â The 308 Excimer System was derived from Quantelâ€™s TALOS 308nm laser system and has been proving itself as the better alternative to large and bulky laser systems. Â
Â The 308 Excimer System uses the same Xenon/Chloride (Xe/Cl) medium to produce the light energy, just as the laser systems do, but there are no canisters of Chloride gas to store and exchange.Â This is because the system uses a sealed lamp design. Here is what Quantel-Derma says about the system: â€śThe 308 Excimer system emits light with a defined wavelength of 308 nm. The emission spectrum is no different than that of an Excimer laser. As opposed to a laser, the emission is not released stimulated, but spontaneously. The emitted light is not coherent, but has the same therapeutic activity as monochromatic coherent laser light. â€ś
Forget having to pay some company every time you do a treatment.Â Why should you have to pay 30% – 50% or more of the reimbursement to a laser company?Â
Â The handheld 308 Excimer system allows you to use either the targeted phototherapy OR standard phototherapy CPT codes.Â This is a better option for patients that either donâ€™t have coverage for targeted phototherapy or have exhausted their allowed number of treatments.Â Â Â Additionally, the system is not classified as a â€ślaserâ€ť so physicians are not required to perform the treatments.Â This greatly increases the versatility of the system and allows the physician to be seeing other patients while the targeted phototherapy patients are being treated by the staff.Â
Â The 308 Excimer System is also perfect to carry to multiple treatment rooms or transport to other offices.Â The system comes in its own carrying case and can be easily carried from room to room or office to office.Â Try that with a big and bulky laser.Â
Many insurance companies specifically cite the Quantel 308 Excimer system in their medical polices for reimbursing at the targeted phototherapy CPT codes 96920-22.
Â The 308 Excimer system from Quantel is distributed by National Biological in the USA and is much less expensive than other Excimer laser.Â Yet, it offers the same efficacy but with greater speed and convenience.Â The system is FDA approved for the treatment of Psoriasis and Vitiligo.Â It is extraordinarily easy to operate and has a very large 40 x 40mm treatment area, one of the largest available.
