ophthafutur hpmc for multiple purposes during ophthalmic surgery.
Crystal clear view
bacterial endotoxins and injectability
The world-wide ambition to reduce the acceptable concentration of bacterial endotoxins is a major challenge in manufacturing, especially for products derived from natural raw materials.
HPMC (Hydroxypropylmethylcellulose) is made from natural cellulose. Microbial impurities are therefore a major concern.
The main goal during ophthalmic surgery is to obtain an unobstructed view through the clear media of the eye. Bubbles contained in any liquid product may considerably obstruct the surgeon’s view. The supply of HPMC having a sufficiently high viscosity paired with an easy and simple injectability represents an additional challenge.
advanced filling technology
our response: scientifically-based engineering
ophthafutur® hpmc is a dispersive ophthalmic viscosurgical device (OVD). Characterized by good wetting properties, excellent tissue and endothelium protection, efficient volume replacement and quick removal.
ophthafutur® viscoelastics are in compliance to the standards of pharmaceutical products and are manufactured according to the relevant GMP guidelines in a fully controlled clean room environment. The filling is performed under pharmaceutical class A conditions avoiding any product contamination. Vacuum technology enables bubble free filling.
fields of application are:
ophthafutur® hpmc can be used for various purposes. The product can be used either intraocularly or extraocularly. It allows excellent visualization when used during surgery due to the absence of bubbles.
ophthafutur® hpmc can be used to wet the cornea during cataract, corneal or retinal procedures. The syringe allows an easy application of the product under a microscope.
The product may also be used to lubricate the surfaces of IOL injectors or IOL cartridges.
The patient should be monitored accordingly after surgery, as elevated intraocular pressure may occur.
