See the Difference in LKC’s Skin Electrodes

LKC offers patented Sensor Strip Skin Electrodes for use with any non-LKC or LKC ERG device. While corneal electrodes may still be used with LKC devices, the Sensor Strips offer a unique, non-invasive, and easy to use alternative for those that cannot tolerate corneal electrodes. Open up a world of selection for patients and produce reliable results for testing, no matter what device you use.

Easy and Fast Placement

Only one connection required, less room for error.

LKC Sensor Strips are easy to use and require only one electrode connection for testing, making it unlikely that an operator will misconnect electrodes on the patient or device. Due to a patented torsion-relief feature in the Sensor Strips, the strips are flexible to move with the patient, lessening the chance of the electrode or cable pulling off.

See the package insert for more details and brief instructions for use.

Accurate Results

With Sensor Strips, changes in ERG results are due to the patient, not the equipment (The heritability of implicit times of photopic flicker electroretinogram responses recorded using a handheld recording system with skin electrodes).

  • Easy to use
  • Simple to place on patient
  • Consistent for clinical use
  • Perfect for pediatric use or for others who cannot tolerate corneal electrodes
  • Offers reliable, comparable results to traditional corneal electrodes with proven lower impedance, when used in conjunction with recommended NuPrep® preparation1

Compare LKC Sensor Strips to Other Skin Electrodes


LKC Sensor Strips

Other Skin Electrodes

Electrode Placement 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
Electrode Connection All connections done with one connector Multiple connectors required
Connector Cable Designed to slip off if cable is pulled so skin is not impacted Locking connector cable, more likely to pull the skin
Preparation Time 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
Skin Placement 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
