Bloomington, Ind. — The Litho 150 laser is now commercially available in the US. The product is the latest offering from Quanta System and is available through Cook Medical distribution. With power of up to 152 W, this ultra-high-power laser is the most powerful holmium laser Quanta has yet offered.
The Litho 150 is the most recent product in a comprehensive line of laser systems from Quanta, and it complements Cook’s complete line of urologic stone management disposables, providing Cook customers with an extensive product offering to treat their patients. The Litho 150 is indicated for use in a variety of endoscopic and urological surgeries, including benign prostatatic hyperplasia procedures and urological stone management.
“We are proud to offer this innovative product,” said Rob Faulkner, director of Cook Medical’s Urology specialty. “The Litho 150 is an all-inclusive laser. It comes with the latest technologies, all of which can be accessed using standard fibers so there is no added expense for dedicated fibers. It’s the perfect addition to our product offerings—helping Cook Medical be the single source of urological disposables and the latest laser technology.”
In addition to its powerful wattage, the Litho 150 comes with more features. An advanced cooling system makes the machine run quietly. The laser also includes Quanta’s three core technologies:
- Virtual Basket™ is a pulse modulation feature that allows fine lithotripsy and minimal stone movement without the need for expensive additional fibers.
- Vapor Tunnel™ is a low-energy pulse feature that creates a vapor bubble between the laser tip and the stone, clearing the way for a more powerful pulse for ablation.
- MasterPULSE technology gives users the ability to intuitively adjust laser settings with seven different pulse width steps for retropulsion control.
The Litho 150 and its associated fibers are now available to order. To place an order or to find more information about the Litho 150, visit the product page here.
