A line graph that shows the surge protection comparison of various phaco systems. CENTURION Gravity Fluidics and CENTURION Active Fluidics without ACTIVE SENTRY had comparably low levels of surge at every vacuum limit. The WhiteStar Signature and INFINITI System had higher levels of surge at all vacuum limits compared to CENTURION Gravity Fluidics and CENTURION Active Fluidics.

Enhanced Efficiency

    The combination of OZil® Torsional and the INTREPID® BALANCED Tip allows CENTURION® Silver System to offer superior nuclear removal compared to the Kelman® tip, thanks to increased torsional amplitude at the distal end.10-12
