Lighting the way for advanced robotic surgery

Today robotic surgical systems are used in many hospitals. Even though the surgery itself might be performed by a robot, the surgeon controlling the instruments must have a clear view of the surgical field. This is enabled by an endoscope containing a camera for imaging and a light guide for illumination. Discover why light guides made with SCHOTT PURAVIS® glass fibers offer outstanding solutions.

PURAVIS® glass optical fibers

PURAVIS® glass optical fibers offer the advantages of outstanding light transmission and a long lifetime, giving designers the freedom to create lighting solutions for a vast range of applications. Winner of a German Innovation Award, PURAVIS® delivers intense, precise light for medicine and industry.

Excellent light properties
PURAVIS® fibers offer outstanding transmission of white light, with a low color shift ensuring that illuminated objects retain their natural color, even in long-length applications. Thanks to their large acceptance angle, the fibers also capture more light from the very start, while their very low dispersion results in high color uniformity.

Long lifetime
Outstanding chemical and mechanical stability results in PURAVIS® fibers having a long lifespan. This is vital for the effectiveness of medical reprocessing techniques such as autoclaving and cleaning, as well as industrial applications using high temperatures or hazardous chemical substances. The fibers can even be immersed in water fountains and swimming pools.

SCHOTT PURAVIS® is available in a number of variants for different lighting requirements. From long, flexible light guides to shorter, rigid glass rods shaped according to your needs, PURAVIS® delivers premium transmission with excellent color rendering. Taken with low color shift and low attenuation in the visible range, these remarkable fibers are able to handle extremely challenging conditions with high consistency and precision.

SCHOTT Solidur® autoclavable LEDs for Medical and Dental Devices

Our ultra-robust High Brightness Solidur® LEDs deliver unparalleled reliability in conditions previously unsupported by conventional LEDs. This includes safety-critical medical, dental, UVB/UVC, and other harsh-environment applications in which conventional LEDs and other light sources are unable to survive.

Brilliantly robust in the most extreme conditions®
Solidur® LEDs encapsulate sensitive LED chips in packages made entirely from non-aging materials, which makes them highly resistant to temperature, humidity, chemicals, pressure, vibrations and UV radiation. This includes autoclaving for medical devices, with Solidur® LEDs remaining fully functional with outstanding optical performance after 3,500 sterilizaton cycles.

Enabling new light design innovations
Solidur® LEDs deliver superior robustness and longevity, opening new possibilities for lighting design. In medical and dental instruments, sterilizable LEDs can be integrated directly at the tip, bringing the light source closer to the treatment area and enabling battery-powered devices. Even instruments with no previous light source can benefit from LED integration.

Variants
Customizable variants in the Solidur® LED family include Mini LEDs with a diameter of roughly 2 mm, Solidur® Ring LEDs that enable shadow-free illumination, easy-to-integrate TO (Transistor Outline) LEDs, and Solidur® SMD LEDs developed to provide long-term durability and efficiency in UVB/C applications.

Ultra-Miniature Packaging for Implantable Devices with Glass Micro Bonding by SCHOTT Primoceler

For the past 40 years, medical implants have been encapsulated in titanium. SCHOTT Primoceler‘s Glass Micro Bonding enables the use of glass in implants and offers a truly hermetic seal. Glass is highly biocompatible and RF transparent. This allows wireless data and power transfers for implanted devices.

Key benefits
• High precision and no heat ›› Extreme miniaturization
• All glass structure ›› Optical and RF transparency
• Biocompatibility
• High hermeticity ›› Allows chronic implants

Primoceler enables ever smaller implants
The active implantable devices of today and the future are getting more intelligent. Implants, for example, capture and transmit data which can later be used by medical professionals. Active implants can also have optical components, such as optical sensors or cameras.

Glass is transparent to radio frequencies
The RF transparency of glass enables recharging, data transfer and reprogramming of implants. Futhermore, glass is transparent to visible light. Transparency enables a wide range of optical applications.
At the same time, our low heat bonding solution allows our customers to have smaller designs for their implants.

Glass is neutral and biocompatible
With the development of stronger glass types, the medical industry can now use glass to create new types of implants that are safer to use. SCHOTT Primoceler‘s Glass Micro Bonding offers an additive free, truly hermetic solution for medical device development and manufacturing. In addition, the bonding process does not use high heat, keeping the sensitive components safe.

Glass bonding is a perfect solution for manufacturing active implantable devices.
