The combination of blue and white lights with optimised outputs provides accelerated reduction of high levels of serum bilirubin.
With its high reliability and low running costs*, the Photo-Therapy 4000

The PT 4000 provides a high intensity light (irradiance) at the most
effective wavelengths and it covers a large surface area of the infant's
The blue part of the spectrum, with an absorption peak of 460 nm, is
particularly effective for the disintegration of bilirubin. The Dräger
“blue” fluorescent lights emit rays precisely in this range and are
therefore ideally suited for this treatment*.
