In collaboration with Dr. Richard Bone, BSc, PhD, FARVO, GHS has developed the MAPCATsf to be an affordable, non-mydriatic, non-invasive device that accurately tracks the macular protective pigment and cataract density changes.
The MAPCATsf will provide health care professionals a reliable baseline and ongoing information for managing a depleted macular protective pigment.
Non-mydriatic, non-invasive device that accurately tracks the macular protective pigment and lens density changes.
MAPCATsf is a multifunction device:
- MPOD (Macular Pigment Optical Density)
- LOD (Lens Optical Density)
- LEA (Lens Equivalent Age)
- % Blue Light Blocking
- EMR Compatible
- MAPCATsf is the only device using a patented troxler-free “single fixation” process and “automatic lens density correction” that produces accurate serialized data.
- Historically, a number of specialized densometers used by research groups within the medical community have been known to produce unreliable data; possibly due in part to the decline of the dynamic motor skills that are thought to be an important function in being able to accurately complete the testing on these devices, which the aging demographic commonly suffer from. The MAPCATsf assists in removing this shortcoming of a delayed physical response.
- Electronic Medical Record (EMR) Compatible: The MAPCAT is the first densometer type device that will have the capability of communicating electronically with the EMR in each health care professional’s office.

Innovative Troxler-free measurement of macular pigment and lens density with correction of the former for the aging lens
Abstract. Simplified measurement of macular pigment optical density (MPOD) is important because of the ocular health benefits that are attributed to these retinal carotenoids. Here, we describe a novel instrument designed for this purpose, based on heterochromatic flicker photometry (HFP), which removes a number of difficulties that subjects often experience with traditional HFP. The instrument generates 1.5- and 15-deg diameter, centrally viewed stimuli that alternate between blue and green colors generated by light emitting diodes (LED). The 15 deg stimulus replaces the small, eccentrically viewed stimulus used in traditional HFP. READ MORE >>
