Ultrapure liquid perfluorocarbon

F-Octane is a sterile fluorocarbon compound of high density (1.76 g/cm3).
“Ultrapure” here signifies a product that contains no relevant quantities of biologically active compounds. Due to the exceptional stability of the C-F bonds, F-Octane is chemically and physiologically inert and absolutely non-toxic.h.

Use

As a medical agent for:

  • Unfolding detached retinas
  • Giant tears
  • Trauma
  • Laser coagulation and cryotherapy
  • Refloating luxated lenses
  • Short-term tamponade
