The real test of effective hydrophilic performance is endurance, and if a guidewire’s lubricity diminishes over the course of a procedure the result can be time-consuming and costly. The AQUALiner guidewire with a hydrophilic coating from AngioDynamics is engineered to last as long as the procedure does, providing the hydrophilic longevity that minimally-invasive procedures demand.
AQUALiner also provides exceptional kink-resistance and a softer, smoothly tapered chemically engineered tip, which combine to assure efficient, atraumatic interventional procedures even in the most tortuous anatomy. Laboratory testing applied a constant load to coating surface while guidewire was moved up and down, with results demonstrating better adhesion endurance of AQUALiner’s coating vs. the leading competitor. With the additional a choice of straight or angled tip, AQUALiner provides the right configuration for any clinical need.
