The first Leonardo Dual 200 laser from Biolitec has been  installed at a customer site. The new, high-performance laser will be used by the Urology Department of the Franziskus Hospital in Berlin, Germany, in many areas of minimally-invasive laser medicine. By combining two wavelengths (980 and 1470 nm), it provides capabilities for vaporization, coagulation, and the cutting of tissue.

Through the flexible selection of wavelengths, the high-performance laser can be used in various disciplines such as phlebology, proctology, gynecology, and ENT (ears, nose, and throat). The wavelength of 980 mm offers a high absorption in hemoglobin and is therefore also ideally suited for applications in urology. The advantages in urology include excellent hemostasis as well as quick and efficient prostate ablation. The laser therapy with the new laser is well-suited for high-risk patients and requires only local or minimal anesthesia.

In combination with the Xcavator or Twister fibers from Biolitec, the contact fibers provide excellent ablation and dependability. When working in contact mode, a bundled energy transfer is transmitted to the area to be ablated or vaporized. The result is a smooth surface. Specially developed glass tips prevent fiber damage and allow for consistently high performance. (Source: Biolitec)
