Automated filtration of surgical fumes in laparoscopic surgery
HUBSAFE is an innovative medical device that automates the filtration and the evacuation of surgical fumes, regardless of the type of energy used (monopolar, bipolar, ultrasound, thermofusion).
The fumes are filtered thanks to the ENDOSAFE filtration capsule. It traps viruses (including Covid-19), bacteria and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) such as toluene, benzene and acetone. The capsule is easy to install thanks to its universal Luer Lock connector.
In a will of transparency, SMICES collaborated with an independent organism to bring you convincing results, as well on the filtration of viruses and bacteria as on the filtration of Volatile Organic Components (VOC). ENDOSAFE filters almost all VOCs and 99,9995% of the bacteria and viruses present in surgical fumes.
Thanks to the device, operating room staff can operate in complete safety.
Protection and safety
HUBSAFE protects and safeguards the entire operating room staff and patients from the hazards of surgical fumes caused by tissue cauterization. Thanks to our solution, surgical teams can breathe healthy air, free of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs).
The use of the HUBSAFE also provides better visibility of the surgical site.
HUBSAFE automatically evcuates surgical fumes at a flow rate of 6L, 9L or 12L/min as soon as the generator (monopolar, bipolar, ultrasound or thermofusion) is running.
Thanks to the automation of the HUBSAFE, the CO2 consumption during the procedures is reasonable.
Our device is also equipped with a manual mode to evacuate the pneumoperitoneum at the end of the surgery.
Optimal filtration of the surgical fumes
The ENSODAFE filter is composed of :
- A water trap allowing to capture the water steam containing viruses and bacteria,
- An ULPA filter with a very high filtration efficiency of 99,9995% according to the EN1822-1 standard,
- Activated carbon for optimal filtration of VOCs.
ENDOSAFE ensures the efficiency of fumes filtration up to 8 hours.
