IOL Injector Coating - LubriMATRIX
LubriMATRIX™ Surface Treatment for Intraocular Lens (IOL) Injectors
LubriMATRIX™ is a novel and innovative surface treatment technology specifically developed to enable a safer, simpler and more effective intraocular lens (IOL) delivery. Designed to set the standard for current and next generation IOL injection systems, LubriMATRIX™ protects the IOL from damage during cataract surgery.
LubriMATRIX™ treatments are:
More than a hydrophilic treatment
LubriMATRIX™ virtually eliminates coefficient of friction in wet environments.
LubriMATRIX™ passes all stringent bio-compatibility tests (ISO 10993-4, -5 and -11) associated with tissue and blood contacting devices.
Thin & Flexible
LubriMATRIX™ is in sub-micron-order in thickness at dry state and does not stiffen the substrate material.
Applicable to small bevel injectors
LubriMATRIX™ enables the coating of injectors with small incision bevel.
LubriMATRIX™ can be sterilized by autoclave in addition to all other sterilization methods.
LubriMATRIX™ retains its physical integrity and lubricity in both wet and dry storage conditions.
