TECASON P XRO x-ray opaque

Ensinger Industries launches its new line of xray opaque, XRO series, thermoplastic shapes with TECASON™P XRO. A radio opacifer is added to the standard line of colored PPSU extruded rod for orthopedic sizing trials and other instrument devices allowing for clear visibility of the component on fluoroscopy and xray.This accommodates some of the new challenges created by minimally invasive and image guided surgery. TECASON™P XRO has been tested to the requirements of IS0 10993 for external communication devices intended for less than 24 hour contact with tissue, bone and dentin. These tes tsinclude: Maximization / Sensitization Test ing, Cytotoxicity, Int racutaneous Test, Acute Systemic Toxicity Test and the Hemolysis Test.

TECASON™ P XRO has been formulated to allow clear visibility of an instrument on fluoroscopy and xray during minimally invasive and image guided surgery. Thus providing an exceptional benefit to the user.
