Zeiss OPMI Vario / S88 Features

The Zeiss OPMI Vario / S88 is a surgical microscope on the Zeiss S88 stand. The Zeiss Vario Microscope was designed for various procedures, neurosurgery, Spinal Surgery, ENT, and P&R surgery. The Vario Microscope is a dual microscope, providing visualization for a surgeon and an assistant to work simultaneously in procedures. The Vario provides controls at your fingertips, with a zoom and focus button and two other programable buttons. These can be used for light intensity or image capturing. The system offers a range of 200 to 415 mm along with the Zeiss 1:6 zoom for incredible optics. Another Zeiss Microscope that is based on the Vario platform is the Zeiss OPMI Vario 700. The Ziess S88 floor stand provides sturdy support for the Vario Microscope with magnetic locking joints. The S88 stand additionally offers a lifting arm that can help position the microscope and lock it into place during a procedure.

  • Extraordinary image quality, improved resolution, and incredible color fidelity are delivered by brilliant, totally apochromatic optics.
  • Internal focus mechanism known as the Varioscope – the surgeon can focus up or down the focal plane without changing lenses.
  • The Zeiss zoom system provides an excellent field of view and magnification.
  • Xenon illumination brilliantly illuminates even the finest details without distorting their natural colors.
