Enhanced Safety and Confidence*

CENTURION® Vision System with ACTIVE SENTRY® is designed with advanced technology to enhance confidence during surgery with near to physiological IOP and enhanced chamber stability, even in the most challenging cases.1-4*

 

 

*Compared to INFINITI® Vision System.

Active Fluidics™ Technology with ACTIVE SENTRY® Handpiece

 

When occlusion break occurs, the ACTIVE SENTRY® Handpiece works with QuickValve™ technology to provide real-time surge minimisation ensuring more consistent volume and IOP maintenance.1,2

CENTURION® Vision System with ACTIVE SENTRY® Handpiece

 

Engineered for stable phaco performance across a variety of vacuum levels. The ACTIVE SENTRY® Handpiece preserves more volume for less surge than other phaco systems.5

A line graph comparing Surge Mitigation with between the CENTURION with ACTIVE SENTRY, CENTURION with Active Fluidics Technology and INFINITI System with INTREPID FMS. CENTURION with ACTIVE SENTRY had the lowest surge at all vacuum limits. INFINITI System with INTREPID FMS had the highest surge at all vacuum limits.

Increase Patient Comfort

 

CENTURION® Vision System with ACTIVE SENTRY® Handpiece allows surgeons to maintain lower pressure in the eye thanks to best-in-class surge reduction, which may increase patient comfort during surgery.1-4

 

CENTURION® Vision System also includes an IOP ramp feature, allowing for progressive build-up of the selected IOP to increase patient comfort. 

A line graph comparing the Surge Volume After Occlusion Break with CENTURION with ACTIVE SENTRY and INFINITI System with IOP at 55 mmHg. CENTURION with ACTIVE SENTRY had 50% less surge and 50% faster recovery from surge.

A line graph comparing the Surge Volume After Occlusion Break with CENTURION with ACTIVE SENTRY and INFINITI System with IOP at 40 mmHg. CENTURION with ACTIVE SENTRY had 60% less surge and 60% faster recovery from surge.

Consistency


CENTURION® Vision System with ACTIVE SENTRY® Handpiece is designed for consistency to help safeguard your outcomes.1

 

The ACTIVE SENTRY® Handpiece addresses variables as they arise.

IOP Error vs. PEL Offset6
 

The integrated pressure sensor automatically recognises PEL, eliminating the need for manual adjustments and maintaining target IOP across cases.1,6

 

A line graph showing the linear increase of IOP Error correlated with an increase in PEL Visual Alignment Error with the CENTURION Vision System

 

IOP Error vs. Incision Leakage7
 

The integrated pressure sensor automatically detects the difference in aspiration and irrigation rates and adjusts flow to consistently maintain target IOP.1,7 

 

A line graph showing the increase in IOP error correlated with an increase in incision leakage with the CENTURION Vision System 

As changes occur in the anterior chamber, Active Fluidics™ technology actively works to maintain target IOP.

 

Dynamic IOP control automatically detects and compensates for varying flow rates in real time, supporting surgeons with superior performance reproducibility over gravity and pressurised bottle fluidics.1,5,8

IOP as Aspiration Rate Rises5,8

Gravity vs. Active Fluidics™

 

A line graph comparing the IOP at various aspiration rates of CENTURION Vision System and AMO WHITESTAR Signature with gravity fluidics. As aspiration rate rises, CENTURION Vision System maintains a consistent IOP. IOP with AMO WHITESTAR Signature decreases as aspiration rate rises

IOP as Aspiration Rate Rises5,8

Pressurised Bottle vs. Active Fluidics™

 

A line graph comparing the IOP at various aspiration rates of CENTURION Vision System and systems with pressurised bottle fluidics. As aspiration rate rises, CENTURION Vision System maintains a consistent IOP. IOP with pressurised bottle systems decreases as aspiration rate rises

Your Preferred Efficiency

    With the efficient combination of OZil® Torsional, INTREPID® BALANCED Tip and Active Fluidics™ technology, CENTURION® Vision System offers superior nuclear removal.9-12

     

    Compared to the INFINITI® Vision System, surgeons will experience accelerated cataract removal with reduced repulsion, reduced cumulative dissipated energy (CDE) and less aspiration fluid use.9-12

    A bar graph comparing aspiration time measured in seconds between the CENTURION with INTREPID BALANCED Tip, CENTURION with Kelman Tip and INFINITI with Kelman Tip. CENTURION with INTREPID BALANCED Tip had a significantly lower aspiration time than CENTURION with Kelman Tip and INFINITI with Kelman Tip. A bar graph comparing cumulative dissipated energy between the CENTURION with INTREPID BALANCED Tip, CENTURION with Kelman Tip and INFINITI with Kelman Tip. CENTURION with INTREPID BALANCED Tip had significantly lower cumulative dissipated energy than CENTURION with Kelman Tip and INFINITI with Kelman Tip. A bar graph comparing aspiration fluid used with the CENTURION with INTREPID BALANCED Tip, CENTURION with Kelman Tip and INFINITI with Kelman Tip. CENTURION with INTREPID BALANCED Tip used significantly less aspiration fluid than CENTURION with Kelman Tip and INFINITI with Kelman Tip.

    Using the CENTURION® Vision System with ACTIVE SENTRY® Handpiece with a higher vacuum setting and the same bottle height provides ideal holdability.3-5,13,14

    CENTURION® Vision System dual segment and 7 rollers peristaltic pump has a smoother, faster fluidics response, allowing for better followability than INFINITI®.1,15

    A line graph that shows the non-occlusion vacuum variation of CENTURION FMS and INFINITI INTREPID PLUS FMS. CENTURION FMS is more stable over time compared to INFINITI FMS. An image of the CENTURION FMS and INFINITI FMS. The dual segment technology of CENTURION FMS generates a dual sinusoidal curve, allowing for more efficient and stable aspiration compared to INFINITI FMS.

    The INTREPID® Irrigation Sleeve is optimised for cataract micro procedures and works synergistically with the INTREPID® BALANCED Tip, reducing thermal risk during phaco.1,16*

    An image of that showcases the INTREPID irrigation sleeve with a 4-rib sleeve design which reduces sleeve movement and increases irrigation flow compared to the INFINITI Vision System
     

     

    Seamless Integration

     

    CENTURION® Vision System Graphic User Interface is designed to be intuitive, for an easier learning curve for the surgeon and the staff:

     

    • Regular audible and visual alerts on remaining BSS® volume levels act as a safeguard to protect the eye by ensuring irrigation1
    • Enables quick adjustment and enhanced customisation of surgical parameters and settings1
