marSeal IQ Instruments
The marSeal IQ instruments are a universally applicable instrument that, thanks to its modular design offering different shaft lengths, can be used for laparoscopic applications as well as open surgery.
marSeal allows you to occlude veins, arteries and tissue bundles per-manently and reliably. Besides, the instrument features an integrated blade mechanism by which the sealed zone can be conveniently cut in the middle once the sealing process has been completed – without any need to exchange instruments!
The instrument can be completely taken apart and autoclaved, with the blade being the only disposable part used in its design. This offers a further benefit in the form of a significant cost reduction, compared with an entirely disposable instrument.
Advantages offered by the marSeal IQ instruments
■ Dissecting, sealing, cutting – no instrument exchange required
■ Reliable sealing with easy transection of the sealed tissue (for vessels up to 7 mm with a burst pressure of over 360 mm Hg)
■ Supported by the maXium® HF unit and its optimally adapted SealSafe® IQ current, marSeal IQ
- minimizes tissue adhesion and resulting incrustation of contact surfaces - reduces tissue damage from lateral heat spread (< 2 mm)
- provides an efficient, time-saving sealing process
- offers automatically the type of current belonging to the instrument, together with a suitable default value (IQ instruments)
■ Activation of the current can be performed directly by means of the push buttons integrated into the electrode handle. There is no foot switch necessary for activation.
■ The ratchet integrated into the handle ensures that a constant pressure is applied to the target tissue as required for effective sealing
■ The ergonomic design of the handle provides for ease of use, preventing fatigue in the surgeon’s hand during the sealing and cutting process
■ Easy application of the instrument to the target tissue as the tubular shaft can be rotated by 360°
■ Cost reduction due to minimal share of disposables
■ Modular system with different shaft lengths for laparoscopic applications as well as open surgery
■ Easy cleaning as the instrument can be taken apart completely
■ Validated cleaning process
■ Autoclavable at 134°C (273.2°F), acc. to ISO 17665-1
