Silicone Oil 1500 CST
Aurosil 1500 is a fractionated, purified, sterile and apyrogenic silicone oil designed for long term Endotamponade after surgical treatment for severe retinal detachment.
- The choice of viscosity that offers an optimum balance between easy injection and stable long term Endotamponade.
- It offers a dynamic viscosity and its stable intermolecular forces resist early emulsification.
- Chemically and physiologically inert homogeneous liquid.
- Low levels of reactive – OH end groups minimize the risk of interaction with ocular environment.
- Manufactured under GMP environment, assures product safety and performance.
