OCT Zeiss Cirrus 6000

Equipment manufacturer Zeiss has launched its new optical coherence tomography (OCT) device, the Cirrus 6000.

Zeiss introduced the OCT device, alongside a range of updates across its portfolio, during the annual European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery (ESCRS) conference, which was held in Paris, France (14–18 September).

The Zeiss Cirrus 6000 is capable of capturing 100,000 A-Scans per second and is 270% faster that previous generations of the OCT, the equipment manufacturer reported.

Zeiss explained that faster image capture results in more image detail and improved quality due to fewer motion artefacts. Practitioners are also able to transfer raw patient data from previous models of the device.

President of Carl Zeiss Meditec, Dr Ludwin Monz, said: “The Cirrus 6000 addresses the challenges faced by eye care professionals, enabling them to maximise time while maintaining a high standard of care.”

Also showcased at the conference was the new SL 800 slit lamp, which features a two-button mechanism for changing magnification, autoview and an electronic quick etop brake. It has also been designed to be operated with a single hand, Zeiss highlighted.

Other updates included: a new addition to the Zeiss Cataract Suite, the Zeiss EQ Workplace; digital microscope, the Zeiss Artevo 800; and micro-interventional device, the Zeiss Miloop.
