"Already during my time in the hospital we purchased many special lamps from Richard Schahl, because the mixture of good prices, fast delivery times and specialist knowledge was right.
I still order our replacement lamps there today."
Lamps for microscopy, endoscopy, diagnostics and analysis
When illuminating scientific and medical applications such as gastroscopy, colonoscopy (proctoscopy, rectoscopy), ERCP examination, etc., it is extremely important to use a high-quality diagnostic lamp which ideally supports imaging in medical devices (e.g. in the light microscope) and in examination procedures (e.g. endoscopy) to 100 percent. For example, laryngoscopes are used in the upper and lower respiratory tract - the cold light source is located in the handle of the device. The lamp used for bronchoscopy (pulmonary endoscopy) is built into the flexible bronchoscope together with the mini camera.
An equally widespread examination device is the octoscope (ear mirror) of the ENT physician and also has a light source in the headpiece to illuminate the auditory canal.
Perfect colour rendering, high-quality white light and harmonious spectral properties are just some of the features that such an examination lamp must have, regardless of whether it is a 6V incandescent lamp or 12V LED lamps are used.
Headlamps, forehead mirrors, ophthalmoscopes, laryngoscopes and fluorescence microscopy
Numerous professional light sources are used for successful visualisation in the medical and scientific fields: headlamp, headlamp, slit lamp, cold light lamp, magnifying glasses with light, hand lamp and much more.
These medical headlights and magnifying glasses ensure optimum illumination and enlargement of the examination and treatment field and are standard diagnostic equipment in medical practices and hospitals.
The slit lamp, a light source that can be swivelled to both sides, is located on the microscope. The slit-shaped light beam bundled by it illuminates the transparent parts of the eye.
Headlamps, forehead mirrors, ophthalmoscopes, laryngoscopes and fluorescence microscopy
Cold light lamps are used in medicine in endoscopes and surgical microscopes and offer particularly high luminous intensity. Halogen or xenon lamps, for example, whose light is projected onto a light guide, serve as cold light sources. The light guide transports the light to the location to be illuminated. The light quality can be changed by various filters, e.g. for fluorescence endoscopy.
In fluorescence microscopy, for example, white light is also provided for medical diagnostics.

We offer special lamps for medical needs from renowned manufacturers such as Osram, Ushio, Dr. Fischer, Excelitas, Luxtel, Hanaulux/Maquet and many more for your medical equipment from manufacturers such as Pentax, Olympus Storz, Nikon, Zeiss, Leica, Welch Allyn, Heine and many more.
Light therapy, phototherapy and UV disinfection
Not only can medical devices be equipped with light and support the examination, but it can also be used as part of the therapy itself. Light can also be used to successfully clean and disinfect surfaces, water and air from all types of pathogens.



Lamps for light therapy and UV light therapy
In our online shop you will find high-quality light therapy lamps that are used by doctors for the classic forms of phototherapy. Here you will find from the long-wave UV-A lamp (from 340 to 400 nanometers) for the treatment of neurodermatitis, to short-wave UV-B lamps (wavelengths from 280 to 320 nanometers) for the alleviation of psoriasis, itching and sun allergy, to Wood's lamp with only a low light emission in the visible blue-violet spectrum for medical diagnostics and fluorescence applications everything the heart desires.
In addition, we also carry many full spectrum lamps and daylight lamps (popularly also called sunlight lamps), which are often used in daylight therapy, the so-called light shower. Here, lamps are used specifically against depression and the patients are irradiated by artificial sunlight. The very bright light of up to 10,000 lux causes an increase in the hormone serotonin in the body, which has a positive effect on mood and can counteract depression.
A special form of treatment is bilirubin therapy for infants which also requires a special light source - the short-wave blue light lamp with a wavelength of approx. 455 nm. The UV light supports the treatment against jaundice and helps to reduce the increased bilirubin.

In addition to classic UV applications, UV light lamps with specific wavelengths and properties are also used as disinfection lamps for disinfection. Well-known representatives of these lamps are Puritec from Osram and TUV lamps from Philips. These lamps are suitable for surface disinfection in a clean room or for water treatment in waterworks through to UV disinfection of breathing air.

Surgical Lighting
The lighting of operating theatres is standardised according to DIN 5035-3 as it must meet the highest requirements. Not only the operating table must be optimally illuminated, the ambient lighting must also be taken into account. Due to the flat angle of incidence, 40,000 to 160,000 lux are required from the OR lamp in the operating field and a colour rendering index of Ra 90 or higher. The surgical light must provide homogeneous light quality to avoid glare, shadows and reflections. 2,000 lux must be achieved around the operating table and 1,000 lux in the rest of the room!
Minimally invasive surgery uses separately switchable and dimmable room lighting with green light and low illuminance levels. The surgical light can also be switched to an endoscopy mode with green light.
Frequent surgical lights include Dr. Mach, Hanaulux, Maquet, ALM, Berchtold, Martin, Ritter, Sirona and KaVo.
Lamp types such as HLX or XIR are ideal for surgical lighting.
Lamps for Dentistry
Whether in the dental practice, the dental laboratory or the dental technician - in the field of dentistry, the lighting requirements are manifold. In the treatment room, the dentist needs lamps that guarantee high colour rendering. Homogeneous light with a colour temperature of around 6,500 Kelvin is also recommended. According to DIN5035, the treatment environment is specified as 1,000 lux; the oral cavity is illuminated with at least 8,000 lux. Many dental practices are therefore equipped with fluorescent lamps (light colour 965); standard models are 18, 36 and 58 watts. UV lamps, magnifying glasses and mouth mirrors with light are used for the treatment.
In dental laboratories, particularly high demands are placed on lighting quality, where flat, homogeneous light is required for high-quality glare control. Thanks to the high colour rendering value and the high colour temperature, contrasts are clearly visible to the dental technician.
Polymerization Lamps
Polymerization lamps serve as light sources in polymerization equipment. They have blue light and cure plastic fillings. Both halogen and LED lamps are used. The light beam emerges conically from the light guide. The decisive factor for the luminous efficacy is the distance between the lamp and the filling. An example of a blue light lamp is the 64634 HLX from Osram.
Teeth Whitening
For white teeth: In professional tooth whitening (bleaching), the bleaching gel used is irradiated with special lamps (LED or UV light). The light frequencies used activate and accelerate the chemical process. Frequently used bleaching lamps include Osram Xenophot lamps.

Heat Treatments
Use light specifically for medical purposes: Heat therapies with infrared light lamps are used in physical medicine for external applications. The tissue temperature is increased and thus the local blood circulation is improved. Infrared light therapy covers various areas of application: Arthrosis, inflammations in the ENT area, rheumatism, fibromyalgia, etc. In addition, newborns, especially premature babies, are protected from hypothermia thanks to heat lamps/infrared radiators.

Inside the glass bulb of a red light lamp, the filament emits a large proportion of light in the infrared range (electromagnetic radiation with a wavelength of 780 nm to 1 mm). The infrared light used in ultra-red light therapy is divided into three areas: IR-A, IR-B and IR-C. The lamp emitters used for the therapy filter out the IR-B radiation and the IR-C radiation in order to make better use of the IR-A radiation that penetrates deeper.

In addition to the heat treatment of humans, red light lamps can also be used on animals, e.g. for chick breeding or pig breeding. IR-A is used in veterinary medicine.

An example of a typical infrared lamp is the PAR38 IR 150W E27 230V Red and the R95 IR 100W E27 230V Red from Philips. Other manufacturers include Dr. Fischer and Radium.
Clinic & Laboratory Lighting
Inviting, calming and friendly on the one hand, safe and stimulating on the other - the demands placed on surgery lighting are many and varied.

While in the reception and waiting area of a doctor's practice it is important to relax the patient and at the same time to enable the staff at the reception desk to work ergonomically, the lighting in the treatment rooms and in the laboratory must ensure safe work. Lighting management systems combined with efficient LED solutions offer a high level of comfort.

In the waiting room, a relaxing lighting atmosphere is conducive to patient confidence: warm light of around 3,000 Kelvin and the use of several luminaires (wall, ceiling and floor luminaires) create a homely atmosphere. DIN EN 5053-3 stipulates a basic brightness of at least 200 lux, but 300 lux is required for reading.
Clinic & Laboratory Lighting
The examination and consultation room must provide good light for examination, consultation and screen work; 500 lux is required here and even 1,000 lux on the examination surfaces. Illuminance in the operating field increases to 5,000 lux during dental treatment in the oral cavity. The colour rendering index for dental, dermatological and ophthalmological examinations is at least Ra 90.

High illuminance levels are required for laboratory lamps: 500 lux, for colour tests 1,000 lux with daylight white light. Lamps with a colour rendering index of Ra 90 are required for colour comparisons to be successful.

Lamps frequently used in practice room lighting include the MASTER TL-D Super 80 58W/865 fluorescent lamp or the MASTER TL-D Super 80 36W/865 from Philips.
