Steeles.com Student Diagnostic Set Guide
Welch Allyn otoscopes and ophthalmoscopes have been used in hospitals and clinics for decades. Welch Allyn continues to be the leader in ear, eye, nose, and throat diagnostics. The diagnostic set is a necessity for any student looking to perfect the eye and ear exam. Welch Allyn equipment generally lasts the length of your career and is backed by an unconditional student warranty that lasts through residency.
New in 2021, the 71-SM2CXX replaces the 97200-MCL as the standard student set. It includes the Coaxial ophthalmoscope with cobalt blue filter, Macroview otoscope, and Nickel Cadmium convertible power handle. The Nickel Cadmium handle can also use C-size alkaline batteries. The new 71-PM3LXE-US Panoptic Plus replaces the 97800-MSL as the most advanced student set. The set includes smartphone capability for recording eye and ear exams, new Eye Alignment technology, Durashock protective housing, and improved Lithium ion handle. The Lithium Ion power handle is lighter, has a 2x longer battery life, and low battery indicator compared to the Nickel Cadmium handle.
For students with limited budgets, we recommend the Welch Allyn 92821 Pocketscope Set. This set contains professional aperture settings and filters in a 2.5 volt AA battery set.
