Safe and low-risk working thanks to FUSION® technology – Fiber tip is safely fused – Loss of fiber tip during treatment virtually eliminated – ELVeS® Radial® product line has additional safety features
Jena, 11.04.2019 – Due to its high quality standards biolitec® has understood right from the start what safety is all about: The FUSION® technology of biolitec® was developed to enable physicians to work as safely and low-risk as possible and to reduce possible material-related risks for patients during surgery to a minimum.
With the unique FUSION® technology, the quartz fiber tip is not simply glued to the laser fiber, but safely fused to withstand the highest tensile forces. The loss of the fiber tip in the vein during the treatment and the associated surgical intervention are thus almost impossible.
In combination with the lasers of the LEONARDO® DUAL series, the FUSION® technology of biolitec® offers an optimal safety concept in minimally invasive laser therapy. The ELVeS® Radial® laser minimizes postoperative pain and injury compared to hemoglobin-directed 810 nm to 980 nm lasers due to the 40 times higher absorption rate in water. In varicose vein therapy, the 1470 nm wavelength in particular benefits a positive course of treatment.
In addition, the fibers of the ELVeS® Radial® series have an exclusive and patented distal design that enables homogeneous laser radiation. This minimizes the risk of venous perforation and ensures high echogenic visibility. The laser energy can be individually dosed and applied to veins of different sizes without having to treat individual sections a second time. The irreversible photothermal process that results leads to a safe closure of the treated vein.
Our state-of-the-art technology enables minimally invasive endoluminal treatment of insufficient veins – safe and simple! Not only for experienced doctors, but also for newcomers who want efficient and easy-to-use technology.
The possibility of using two wavelengths in a compact, mobile and space-saving laser system is a great advantage, as is the low maintenance requirement. Each wavelength of LEONARDO® lasers can be individually selected or applied simultaneously to achieve the desired tissue effects such as incision, excision, vaporization, hemostasis and soft tissue coagulation.
The LEONARDO® DUAL lasers of biolitec® are – except in phlebology – suitable for minimally invasive applications in proctology, urology, gynecology, orthopedics, thoracic surgery, pneumology, ENT and esthetic surgery and of course all fibers of biolitec® are equipped with the FUSION® technology. The laser system consists of lasers with a power of 45, 100 or 200 watts.

biolitec® is one of the world’s leading medical technology companies in the field of laser applications and the only provider which possesses all the relevant core competences in the field of photodynamic therapy (PDT) – photosensitizers, lasers and fibre optic cables. Besides laser-supported treatment of cancers with the drug Foscan®, biolitec® researches and markets above all minimally invasive, gentle laser procedures.
ELVeS® Radial® (Endo Laser Vein System) is the world’s most-used laser system to treat venous insufficiency. The LEONARDO® diode laser from biolitec® is the first universally applicable medical laser which has a combination of two wavelengths, 980nm and 1470nm, and which can be used across disciplines. The innovative contact fibre XCAVATOR® in conjunction with the LEONARDO® DUAL 200 Watt laser allows in urology a gentle treatment of e.g. benign prostate enlargement (BPH). The light-weight LEONARDO® Mini laser weighing only 900 g was developed especially for mobile application on site. Gentle laser applications in the fields of proctology, ENT, gynecology, thorax surgery and pneumology are also part of biolitec®’s field of business. More information available at www.biolitec.com
