Surface disinfection for ZEISS surgical microscopes

Due to the current worldwide corona pandemic, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends disinfecting surfaces with a disinfectant solution of at least 70% alcohol.
ZEISS confirms that, based on experience, there is no risk of disinfecting the surfaces of our surgical microscopes with such solutions. It cannot be excluded that surfaces can become dull or matt. It is also possible that adhesive labels may become detached during long-term exposure, but not fall off.
However, this does not at any time affect the performance characteristics of the systems or pose a risk to the patient or user.
IMPORTANT: It is always recommended to follow cleaning instructions outlined in the user manual for each ZEISS instrument.
