The new PRIMUS 200 empowers practices to offer their patients more comprehensive eye care, with a compact, easy-to-use OCT system that provides essential applications for retina, glaucoma and anterior segment. This new instrument joins the current family of ZEISS CIRRUS OCTs; the CIRRUS HD-OCT (dedicated OCT) and CIRRUS photo (combined OCT and fundus imaging unit).

PRIMUS 200 is a versatile optical coherence tomography (OCT) system designed to help eye care providers expand their practices and raise their level of clinical care. With OCT now fast-becoming the accepted standard of care in Optometry, the PRIMUS 200 from ZEISS gives practices the opportunity to differentiate, broaden their in-house services and attract a greater range of patients.

“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,” said Claire Martin, Business Development Manager for ZEISS UK. “Our goal at ZEISS is to become the partner of choice for every practice who wishes to deliver the highest quality of patient care.”

PRIMUS 200 offers advanced technology and the high level of quality expected from ZEISS - the company that pioneered OCT more than 20 years ago and the manufacturer of the market-leading CIRRUS™ HD-OCT. The smaller footprint, simple design and short learning curve of PRIMUS 200 make it easy to integrate into smaller eye care practices. Key features include:

· Brilliant image quality, proven ZEISS algorithms and an on-board pathology library for more confident and informed clinical decisions.

· Auto-fovea finder and Auto-Center functions for reliable, operator-independent results.

· Minimal chin time and no dilation down to 2mm pupils, for enhanced patient comfort.

· Simple 3-Step Smart Workflow, for fast and intuitive operator training and use.

“It took less than 10 to 15 minutes for my entire team to learn how to use the PRIMUS 200. Optometrists on my team with no prior OCT experience picked up on this device quite easily,” said Dr. Bhargava Natesh of Nethra Eye Hospital in Bangalore, India. “Image acquisition and processing were also very fast. It can help us go from one patient to another quickly.”

With the new addition of the PRIMUS to the portfolio, ZEISS offer the flexibility to meet the needs of every kind of practice; from the PRIMUS 200 essential OCT to the market-leading CIRRUS HD-OCT and CIRRUS photo combined OCT and fundus imaging unit.

“At ZEISS, we believe that all eye care practices, regardless of size or specialty, should have access to advanced technologies that will help them deliver the best possible care for their patients,” said Dr. Ludwin Monz, President and CEO of Carl Zeiss Meditec AG. “Our PRIMUS 200 offering is especially dedicated to customers who want to grow their practice. It is designed to not only enhance the quality of care in these practice settings, but to also help smaller practices offer their patients more comprehensive eye care.”
