GOLETA, CA – January 2011 OPTRONICS a leading developer of high definition microimaging systems for research and surgical imaging applications has released the VITOM® HD System a new paradigm in extracorporeal visualization designed for research and experimental microsurgery and micro-dissection.

The VITOM® HD System is a KARL STORZ optical instrument coupled with a 1080p full high definition camera system that creates an elegant yet sophisticated ergonomic high definition research visualization system designed for many research applications that are traditionally performed using other means of visualization.

VITOM® HD is an exoscope using extracorporeal magnification and full 1920x1080 imaging technology

The precision crafted optics of the KARL STORZ VITOM® System incorporates the world renowned HOPKINS® II rod lens system. This system uses a combination of rod lenses with multi-layered anti-reflective coatings and integrated fiber optics that create an unsurpassed viewing experience through efficient light transmission. The optical design increases working distance to 25cm - 60cm and depth of field up to 6cm which surpasses traditional surgical and stereo microscopes.

Traditional micro-dissection or experimental surgical procedures require the investigator to use the oculars of a stereo or surgical microscope for visualization. The VITOM® HD System uses full 1920x1080 imaging technology to create an immersive visualization, documentation and teaching experience improving the workflow throughout laboratory environments.

VITOM® HD is meticulously crafted using stainless steel components that are corrosion resistant and autoklavable for sterile applications. The elegant lightweight design with integrated fiber optic illumination makes the instrument highly maneuverable and user friendly. “It’s a microscopic design incorporating endoscopic technology…with all of the benefits associated with infinite visualization angles not found using a traditional microscope…it’s an ergonomically correct user friendly system” stated Norbert Schuster, Marketing Manager for the VITOM® HD System.

The VITOM® HD System is compatible with the KARL STORZ H3Z HD camera or the OPTRONICS Microcast HD line of research digital microscope cameras incorporating fixed focal length or zoom optics. A comprehensive line of imaging accessories that range from 300 watt xenon illuminators to HD recording appliances are available from OPTRONICS.
