BSC 9.1 S / Surgical tool

BSC 9.1 S

Discipline: Product

BSC 9.1 S

Discipline: Product

The BSC 9.1S incorporates a saline line that is more substantial than the cable of established tools. Unlike conventional electrosurgical tools, the BSC 9.1S uses a combination of radiofrequency energy and saline to provide low temperature blood vessel sealing that stops bleeding without charring soft tissue or causing irritating smoke. The tip is wire-thin in one orientation to allow for cutting. When rotated 90 degrees, the tip becomes a broad surface necessary for bipolar sealing. The standard blue and yellow button colors and the distance between the tip and the first button are the same as conventional electrosurgical tools.
