Consumables / Rumex Silicone Oil Smartsil 1000/5000
Silicone Oil is administered with Silicone Oil infusion systems and cannulas
Ultra purified silicone oil for the endo-tamponade after vitrectomy.
RUMEX silicone oil has proven an excellent stability and optimal transparency because of its exclusive vacuum molecular distillation purification which avoids any emulsification risk. Our exclusive solvent free purification process is extracted low molecular weight oligomers and potentially toxic low molecular weight and residual volatile components (water, ethanol) which are lead to emulsification. This is why we guarantee that our silicone oil is one of the purest available on the market.
No emulsification shall occur, if the recommendation mentioned in the Instructions for use is followed.
Each feature of SmartSil 1000/5000 is prominent; the choice of viscosity offers an optimal balance between easy injection and a stable temporary tamponade. In 2013 we are pleased to report the highest and the lowest scores (as compared to similar products worldwide).
Syringes are supplied sterile under double pouch.
