ERBE ELEKTROMEDIZIN GMBH
Setting standards since 1851
As a family-owned and operated business, Erbe develops, manufactures and markets surgical systems for professional use in various medical disciplines all over the world.
Erbe technology leads the market in many countries and is therefore an inherent part of theworking processes in the OR. The products are thus helping to provide the best possible treatment for patients.
The portfolio comprises devices and instruments for electrosurgery, thermofusion, plasmasurgery, cryosurgery and hydrosurgery. By combining these technologies, innovative applications become possible, particularly in general surgery, gastroenterology, gynecology, pulmonology andurology.
Erbe employs more than 1000 people worldwide, over 650 of them in Germany. Approx. 170employees work in research and development. The intensive collaboration with renowned users from medical schools and hospitals is the key to success with which Erbe successfully furthers developments in medicine.
Multi-modality modes for various clinical specialities VIO® 3 has the right mode for
your application, supporting monopolar and bipolar techniques and our proprietary hybrid technology – a combination of different technology.
With BiClamp instruments, vessels and tissue bundles can be reliably coagulated and sealed. Dealing with vessels individually is usually not necessary. All BiClamp models for both open surgery and laparoscopy are reusable. For vessel and tissue sealing, the BiClamp procedure is cheaper than clip/suture closure and competitors’ disposable products.
The APCapplicator is a multimodality electrosurgical instrument.
In addition to “standard” non-contact argon plasma coagulation, other electrosurgical options are integrated into the handpiece: traditional cutting and coagulation with spatula or needle electrode or argon-assisted modalities as desired.
The APCapplicator will convince you too – like virtually all users from a wide range of specialities
The instruments functions simplify open surgical procedures because it can grasp, seal electrosurgically, and mechanically dissected in a single workflow.
In an initial international test of user acceptance, many users evaluated closing of vessels with BiClamp® knife 220 as “fast and safe“.
“Time is money” is increasingly becoming the guiding principle of hospitals also during surgical treatment. Compared to interventions without electrosurgical sealing, the operating time is reduced.
Fast and safe sealing is a key requirement of a sealing instrument. Erbe's new instrument performed very well in this field, and in an international user acceptance test the great majority of physicians (95 %) stated that BiClamp® 220 performs equal or better in regards to coagulation of tissue as well as it's thermal spread compared to other instruments. 89 % stated that vessel sealing is similar or better.
“Plug and operate” is another aspect of high usability. Digital instrument recognition configures the whole system automatically, including the BiClamp® knife 220 and the electrosurgical unit VIO® 3. The constant voltage control ensures that the tissue effect is reliable, reproducible, and homogeneous.
The surgeon can seal vessels up to 7 mm in diameter, the vessel sealing withstand high burst pressure with a short sealing time. The instrument maintains the same reproducible quality of vessel sealing during repeated cycles of activation.
Another advantage is that the surgeon can dissect close to critical structures, due to the minimal thermal spread of Working with BiClamp® knife 220 makes high precision surgery possible. This means that more than three-quarters (78 %) of users are satisfied or very satisfied with the performance of the BiClamp® knife 220.
