Units

The KARL STORZ company history is full of innovative ideas for units that have decisively influenced the development of endoscopic procedures. To mention only a few, this includes the ultrasonic lithotripter, the HF unit with automatic cutting and coagulation current control, and the cold light source. Innovations characterize the current generation of KARL STORZ units as well.

KARL STORZ units stand out with their standardized and modular design and particularly thanks to their precise and durable mechanics and cutting-edge control technology. Structured menu navigation ensures intuitive unit operation. All units are designed and manufactured to meet highest quality and safety requirements and are subject to strict safety testing before delivery.

The KARL STORZ unit portfolio includes:

  • Insufflators
  • Suction and irrigation systems
  • Units for high frequency surgery
  • Laser systems
  • Motor systems
  • Lithotripsy System

Highlights

ENDOMAT® SELECT – The Choice is Yours

ENDOMAT® SELECT is an interdisciplinary roller pump for the irrigation or suction of fluids during surgical and diagnostic procedures. Depending on customer preferences, the pump can be equipped with various software packages so that it can be used for either individual or multiple disciplines.

Benefits at a glance:

  • Cost-efficient pump as modular design supports basic functionality across various fields of application
  • Extremely simple handling thanks to tubing set for single hand control
  • Safe use thanks to tubing set recognition
  • Seamless integration into existing systems
  • Software allows fields of application to be expanded at any time

ENDOFLATOR® 50

The High-Performance Insufflator

Stable OR field thanks to innovative regulation

  • Gas heating adapts to various ambient conditions and reliably prevents telescope fogging
  • Maximum flow rate of up to 50 l/min
  • 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 MIS procedures, use of devices to filter released CO2 for aerosolized particles should be strongly considered”.
While KARL STORZ has not specifically tested the use of KARL STORZ smoke evacuation devices and COVID-19, there are data on KARL STORZ filters and its effectiveness against other bacteria and 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 99.9999 %.1,2
The Most Penetrating Particle Size is typically in a range of 0.1-0.3 µm. These particles are the most difficult to trap by the filter. The test aerosol DEHS (= Di-2-Ethylhexyl-Sebacat) with a size of 0.3 µm was therefore used for non-microbiological tests. A filter efficiency of more than 99.9994 % was achieved.3
