OpClear® – How it works
OpClear® is a single use disposable sheath and tube set that attaches to the laparoscope. The Disposable is connected to the OpClear® Control Unit that directs carbon dioxide (CO2) and saline into the sheath and across the tip of the laparoscope. This control unit acts independently of the insufflator but uses the standard gas supply.
