- In combination with the S-PILOT® smoke evacuation system, creates optimal viewing conditions and a stable OR field, even in small cavity surgery
S-PILOT® – modular smoke evacuation system
As an early pioneer in laparoscopy, KARL STORZ has consistently worked to advance the state of the art. A great example is the S-PILOT® modular smoke evacuation management system, with in-line filtration and options for both active and passive applications. Recent guidance from SAGES and EAES recommends “For laparoscopic procedures, use of devices to filter released CO2 for aerosolized particles should be strongly considered. […]”.
While KARL STORZ has not tested the efficiency of KARL STORZ smoke evacuation devices to meet the ULPA certification requirements or for filtering SARS-CoV-2 viruses, there is data on the efficiency with which KARL STORZ filters filter bacteria and other viruses.
The filter efficiency of KARL STORZ filters was tested using the most common test methods with microorganisms known as “Virus Filtration Efficiency (VFE)” and “Bacterial Filtration Efficiency (BFE)”. These types of tests are considered to be the most similar to clinical scenarios. A test aerosol with a mean particle size of 3 +/- 0.3 µm and a virus bacteriophage ɸX174 of 0.027 µm (at VFE) or bacteria Staphylococcus aureus (at BFE) were used. Test results confirmed a filter efficiency of more than 99.999%.1,2
For non-microbiological tests, the test aerosol DEHS (= Di-2-Ethylhexyl-Sebacate) with a size of 0.3 µm was used. A filter efficiency of more than 99.99% was achieved.3
