Product: Zeiss Plex Elite 2.0
Top Line: Zeiss Medical Technology Segment is launching Plex Elite 2.0, the first dual-speed, swept-source optical coherence tomographer (OCT/OCTA) that will scan at 200kHz, in addition to 100kHz, providing doctors a deeper and more detailed view into the retina enabling visualization options for various diseases.
Close Up: Plex Elite 2.0 enables faster, deeper, and higher resolution imaging of the eye, elevating ophthalmic imaging and clinical research to a new level. Varying speeds can be applied to different disease states in the eye and expand possibilities of research.
At the core of this accelerated development of research with Plex Elite is the Advanced Imaging Network, a collaboration of practitioners with the mission of advancing research and innovation in the fields of retina and glaucoma. This one-of-a-kind innovation engine brings together renowned clinicians and scientists from around the world using a cloud-based software platform to interact and collaborate in real time, all with a unified goal to advance the future of eyecare.
Vital Stats: With the Plex Elite 2.0’s deeper and more detailed view into the retina, doctors can fully image conditions such as posterior staphylomas, retinal detachments, high myopia, and choroidal tumors. This evolution provides faster scans to visualize from the retinal vitreous interface all the way down to the choroid to assess highly curved myopic eyes in an unprecedented way.
Since its launch in 2016, the Advanced Imaging Network has grown significantly and expanded beyond the retina to glaucoma and optic nerve diseases and promises to expand further. The network plans to continue their collaboration and enable researchers to further experiment on the clinical utility of swept source technology in ophthalmology, Zeiss said.
