J. Morita introduces Root ZX mini. The world’s best selling apex locator is now available in a compact, mini design with proven Root ZX technology. Root ZX mini measures just over 4” x 2 1/3”. Its compact and lightweight design makes it conveniently portable; it can easily be moved to work in any quadrant of the mouth and it takes up very little counter space when it is stored after use. Like the original model, Root ZX mini utilizes the ratio technique for precise length measurement. This technology has been independently evaluated at a 97.5% accuracy rate*. “Morita’s Root ZX apex locators have dominated the market as the number-one selling units since the early 1990’s,” commented Steven White, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Expanding this product line is an important step for our company. The mini unit has been very popular in other parts of the world. We’ve had many requests for this unit, so we are very optimistic about introducing this product to North America.” For enhanced safety, Root ZX mini offers programmable memory settings which allow the practitioner to mark important points in the canal to register on the display. The ‘flash’ bar is set in the region of the apex and acts as a reference point for measuring or enlarging the canal. The ‘memory’ bar marks points such as the start of a sharp bend or a point where a file size change is needed. The LCD display screen has maintained excellent readability with a clear, progressive display and high contrast. Other Root ZX mini features include: the ability to work in wet canals, shock resistance, automatic calibration, and power off function.
