RT – DECALIN

Sterile perfluorocarbon for intraocular application

SKU: decalin Categories: , ,

Description

Important Note(s)
The sterile perfluorocarbons are 100% perfluorinated compounds, free from hydrogen-containing by-products and therefore absolutely non-toxic. The high specific weight of the perfluorocarbons enables easy and efficient intraoperative retinal unfolding and creates the conditions for the use of a subsequent, permanent long-term tamponade with gas or silicone oil.

Package sizes: 7 ml vial, sterilized in the finished container, single dose
Storage: At room temperature
