Date:4/14/2011

DUBLIN, Calif., April 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc., introduced the all-new PENTERO® 900 surgical microscope system at the 79th Annual Meeting of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS) in Denver, Colo. Based on the breakthrough OPMI® Pentero surgical visualization platform launched in 2004, PENTERO 900 offers innovative new features and customer benefits such as:

HD quality for education, presentations and patient documentationPENTERO 900 offers razor-sharp images in HD quality – camera, recorder, editor and touchscreen monitor are all contained in a fully integrated HD chain. The playback of high resolution HD images and videos is beneficial for surgeons during live demonstrations, resident education, presentations and patient documentation.

New fields of application for fluorescenceThe YELLOW 560 option visualizes fluorescence in the wavelength range from 540 to 690nm supporting new fields of application and research. YELLOW 560 effectively complements the existing ZEISS fluorescence portfolio including BLUE 400, INFRARED 800 and FLOW 800 modules, paving the way for future application developments.

Comfortable working positions with new foldable binocular tubeThe Foldable Tube f170/f260 combines brilliant apochromatic optics and a revolutionary design for maximum visualization flexibility, magnification potential and positioning ergonomics. It offers surgeons an unprecedented range of comfortable working positions, even at extreme surgical approach angles. The PROMAG™ function instantly yields a 50 percent gain in magnification for delicate and detailed procedures.

"When we introduced OPMI Pentero to the market in 2004, we set new, pioneering standards in the user-oriented enhancement of surgical microscope design. With the new features on PENTERO 900, we are propelling the microsurgical platform into a new dimension," said Dr. Ludwin Monz, president and CEO of Carl Zeiss Meditec.
