Launch of single trocar with incision knife


We are pleased to present our latest addition to the product range, which is the single packed trocar. The trocar with its integrated lock membrane prevents the outflow of BSS, air and oil, which results in a constant IOP during the whole surgery. Thanks to its excellent holding power and optimum shaft length, the Caliburn trocar system boasts even more safety and more comfort. The infusion tube, with its patented snap lock, can be placed in a new position any time during surgery, which additionally increases flexibility.
