Zeiss to launch a new OCT for small and growing practices

The Primus 200 system will launch at Optrafair in April

Zeiss is expanding its optical coherence technology (OCT) portfolio with an imaging system that has been designed for small and growing practices.

The new Primus 200 will be launched at Optrafair next month (9–11 April, Birmingham NEC).

The OCT system has been created to be easy to use and offers essential applications for retina, glaucoma and anterior segment work.

The smaller footprint, simple design and short learning curve of the Primus 200 make it easy to integrate into smaller practices, according to Zeiss.

Key features include good image quality, proven Zeiss algorithms and an on-board pathology library to help provide more confident and informed clinical decisions.

The system includes an auto-fovea finder and auto-centre functions for reliable results, meaning minimal chin time and no dilation down to 2mm pupils, for enhanced patient comfort.

The OCT has a simple three-step smart workflow to provide fast and intuitive operator training and use.

The company believes that the Primus 200 gives practices the opportunity to differentiate, broaden their in-house services and attract a greater range of patients.

Zeiss UK business development manager, Claire Martin, said: “Our continued aim is to demonstrate how our portfolio can cater for any size of business; whether it be a small practice just starting out, or an established provider hoping to expand and differentiate through the latest technology.”

She added: “Our goal at Zeiss is to become the partner of choice for every practice that wishes to deliver the highest quality of patient care.”

The new Primus 200 will be on stand F90 at Optrafair. For more information, visit the company’s website.
