Optipac® is a pre-packed vacuum mixing system for mixing and delivery of bone cement offering multiple benefits to the user:
Through mixing and collection under vacuum, the Optipac System is designed to improve cement strength and fatigue life1-5. Both the polymer and the monomer are included from the outset, eliminating several steps in the mixing procedure. Optipac is all-in-one!
Improving Cement Quality
The Optipac System is based on Optivac Technology, launched in 1993. The technology offers a standardised and reproducible mixing procedure producing homogenous cement with very low porosity. With its mixing and collection under vacuum, it reduces both micro and macro porosity, thereby improving cement strength and fatigue life.2,4
Easy to Use – Saving Time
The easy handling saves time and the system is practical to use for the operating staff.6,7 Also, the Refobacin® Plus Bone Cement included in the Optipac System is green coloured for easy recognition during surgery.
Designed for Improving Working Environment
Being a closed system working under partial vacuum, Optipac minimises exposure to monomer fumes and results in no direct contact with bone cement during mixing and delivery.8,9 This avoids the risk of cement cloud from antibiotics, or injury from broken glass ampoules.
The Optipac Plus Bone Cement comes in different sizes for both knee and hip arthroplasty (Knee, 40, 60 and 80 packages).
