Key performance characteristics of the Pointer are:
low resistance due to unique hydrodynamic surface
- A unique surface pattern on the 6 French catheter, results in very low friction. Physicians compare its performance to catheters coated with a hydrophilic layer.
large inner lumen
- Our 5 French catheter has the largest inner lumen on the market and other sizes are comparable to major competitors. This guarantees easy and complete contrast filling for optimal vessel opacification.
superior kink resistance and 1-to-1 torque
- The Pointer catheter has double wire stainless steel braiding, giving it extremely low kink resistance and a very direct torque transfer from grip to tip
atraumatic soft tip
- An atraumatic soft tip ensures an easy catheter introduction and reduces the probability for vessel damage and dissection.
