Product Showroom: Surgical Lasers

OmniGuide Intelliguide

OmniGuide, based in Cambridge, Mass., has taken proprietary technology invented at MIT and originally published in Science and Nature magazines to develop a novel medical laser system for microsurgical applications. The device delivers the proven precision of carbon dioxide lasers through minimally invasive approaches – natural orifice surgery, laparoscopy and robotic surgery – leading to low complications, rapid wound healing and low blood loss, while minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. For staff familiar with CO2 lasers and the time it takes for set-up, OmniGuide eliminates the articulated arm and delivers its energy through a small, flexible fiber. The company’s latest offering is the Intelliguide system, which further simplifies set-up by automating the laser controls through a touch screen interface. OmniGuide is currently being used in hospitals across the US, and has served more than 40,000 patients in just a few years on the market.


Lumenis CO2 laserAcuPulse-WG_31

The AcuPulse 40WG CO2 laser offers 40 Watts of fiber input power. The flexible FiberLase fiber has the lowest beam divergence of comparable devices, the company says, which when combined with high power results in faster treatment times and a more precise and consistent tissue effect. The laser also has a diode-aiming beam delivered to the tip of the FiberLase fiber allowing accurate targeting of the tissue being treated, and as a disposable fiber, the FiberLase helps reduce the risk of patient-to-patient contamination. The distal tip of the FiberLase can be renewed during the procedure in case of power loss due to contact contamination, allowing allows the procedures to continue with no need to use additional fibers.



Lisa Laser Junior Trolley


The RevoLix jr is a theatre-friendly tabletop 2 micron surgical laser. RevoLix does not cause noise strain to theatre personnel, and the tabletop laser fits into any video tower. A laser trolley is available as an option. Regular theatre utilities are sufficient (standard power outlet 100 – 240 VAC wide range, no cooling water required). The laser can be transported between theatres and other departments.
