How to Cleave Surgical Fibers November 22 2016

How to Cleave Laser Surgical Fibers Purpose:        Provide simple instructions for reprocessing flat tip bare fibers for laser surgery. Summary:    Clean cut and flat optical faces are necessary for surgical efficacy in laser surgery. Badly cut fibers deliver energy to target tissue less efficiently and degrade more quickly than properly cut fibers. Step-by-step instructions…. Rationale:      A.A. Griffith developed the first theoretical model for fractures during WWI, inaugurating the Science of...

Smooth Passage™ Holmium Fiber Tips on ProFlex™ LLF August 29 2016

In the course of studying other manufacturers' holmium laser fibers we sometimes observe surprising differences. In this case, we knew that our tips were different -- heck, we gave them a special name -- but  just how much difference they made was the surprise.      The two fibers in the photo are "1000 micron", meaning they have either a 910 μm or 940 μm core inside a 1 mm diameter glass cladding. The upper...

How to Properly Cut Capillary Columns July 21 2014

Cleanly cut column ends are important in CE for minimizing electric field distortions, but in GC a bad cut can cause leaks or even catastrophic column failure.

Proper cutting technique eliminates glass fragment generation, minimizes the probability of cracks and provides a square cut that is free of chip and tangs with the circumference of polyimide intact.
