Laser Fibres for Veterinary Applications
Excel Lasers brings 20 years of medical fibre manufacturing expertise to a range of veterinary fibres, built at our UK facility. All fibres are manufactured using medical grade components under controlled conditions to ensure that we always supply consistent, high quality and reliable products.
A standard SMA connector makes the range compatible with most lasers available today. To enhance usability the connector is fitted with an ergonomic grip, adding strain relief of the fibre at the laser port. In most situations the bare-tipped fibres are suitable for multiple re-use by cutting back using the appropriate tools.
Our range, which is detailed in the Veterinary Accessories leaflet includes flat-tip, conical and radial fibres:
Advantages of Fibre Delivery
Laser energy which is delivered by a light and flexible optical fibre has a number of advantages over the articulated arm source of a CO2 laser:
- Allows access into areas and at angles that are difficult for articulated arm lasers to reach. This can help the patient to be positioned comfortably or even standing
- Can be used for internal procedures through minimally invasive techniques avoiding large wounds and reducing the potential for infection and scarring
- When used in a fluid environment the 810 nm wavelength laser energy will target pigmented tissue rather than heat the water content in the surrounding area
