ORTHO CP-GU. Green-sensitive universal film
ORTHO CP-GU is high-speed film with a medium-to-high contrast, to use with green intensifying screens. Each part of the film has been carefully designed into the ideal shape.
ORTHO CP-GU is optimized for digital scanning technology, and provides constantly high image quality.
Can be used with following products and services
Agfa developer and fixer processing solutions are recommended.
Suitable for following market segments
ORTHO CP-GU can be used in both RP and HT processing.
Dynamic Range Matching
ORTHO CP-GU is a film with an optimized sensitometric curve to take full advantage of digital scanner capabilities. This optimization was achieved by implementing the unique and innovative Dynamic Range Matching technology, which yields a maximum density as close to 4.00 as possible, allowing the recording of the entire density range. Loss of information due to cut-off of either the film or the scanners is avoided as their dynamic ranges will be closely matched. Moreover, the straight-line portion of the film is highly linear, resulting in more precise digital image processing.
Variable Range Hopping
Thanks to the unique Variable Range Hopping concept, ORTHO CP-GU is coated with an antistatic layer that remains on the film after processing. The film attracts less dust and dirt thus reducing artefacts, which increases the quality of scans. This results in improved transport in digitizers with bulk autofeed. The antistatic layer is also harder, making the film more scratch-resistant after processing.
Increased efficiency and reduced operational cost
Cost reduction has become a major concern in today's radiology department. Therefore, the ORTHO CP-GU has been specially designed for processing in high-throughput processors and daylight equipment (e.g. CLASSIC E.O.S., COMPACT E.O.S.), increasing efficiency and reducing the overall operational cost. ORTHO CP-GU also excels in consistency: Agfa's Disc Grain technology ensures constant high image quality, even when the film is processed in weaker chemicals or in unfavorable conditions.
Threefold ecologically sound processing
ORTHO CP-GU is fully compatible with the CLASSIC E.O.S. processor, which reduces both the silver content in wash water and the fixer replenishment rate by 35 %. Furthermore, the film can be processed in glutaraldehyde-free developer and low-odor fixer, which is a major step towards ecologically sound processing.
