Leica M525 OH4 - New Microscope for Neurosurgery offers new Dimensions in Ergonomics, Maneuverability and Safety.


HEERBRUGG, SWITZERLAND. The new Leica M525 OH4 surgical microscope, developed by Leica Microsystems in close cooperation with leading neurosurgeons and with the experience gained in extensive clinical studies, provides a new level of ergonomics and maneuverability.

The Leica M525 OH4 offers the highest overhead space, 36% more space than comparable instruments, and the longest reach to provide considerably more room for the surgeon and the entire operating team to maneuver. The system is vibration-free at all magnification levels. The Leica M525 OH4 features a long video monitor arm that offers unique flexibility with its three rotating axes and an inclination axis that can be positioned to provide comfortable viewing for the entire surgical team.

Gives superior image quality with Leica’s OptiChrome™ optics and new xenon illumination:
The Leica M525 OH4 ideally combines Leica OptiChrome™ optics and the new 300 Watt xenon illumination system to give the surgeon a constant, clear, sharply-focused image throughout the entire surgical procedure.

The Leica M525 OH4 proactively offers innovative illumination solutions for the benefit of the surgeon and the safety of the patient.
· Constant illumination: The newly designed 300W xenon arc-lamp illumination system features two completely independent illumination systems. The backup 300W xenon illlumination system automatically and immediately switches on in the event of the first lamp system’s failure. This gives the surgeon real confidence in knowing that the surgery will not be jeopardized by a lamp failure.
· Light intensity within safe levels, always, with Leica BrightCare™: The Leica M525 OH4’s new working-distance-controlled light intensity ensures that the light intensity does not surpass safe levels, especially in short working distances.
· Safety for the patient, with Leica AutoIris™: The magnification-controlled illumination diameter provides a field of illumination that is just as wide as the field of view. This prevents potential heating of the surrounding tissue outside of the surgeon’s field of observation.

Excellent ergonomics bring the surgeon closer to the surgical site while providing a more comfortable, healthier working posture. Leica Microsystems has adopted a policy of OpenArchitecture™ to accommodate advances in video, documentation, and image processing technology. Leica’s microscope systems easily adapt to the latest standards.
