“Coagulation without the Zap“. For almost a century, Geiger has provided physicians with reliable and durable cautery equipment. The Geiger TCU is ideal for applications such as dermatological, ophthalmologic, ENT, plastic surgery cases, urology, podiatry, or any procedure that requires accurate hemostasis. The autoclavable handpiece with six-foot cord accepts an assortment of thermal cautery electrodes. Unlike Electrosurgery the thermal cautery utilizes direct heat, eliminating the possibility of aberrant radio frequency currents which can cause unintended tissue damage, shocking, or interference with pacemakers, defibrillators, and monitoring equipment. Unlike disposable battery powered cauteries, the TCU maintains the desired temperature during tissue contact and does not rapidly diminish. Dimensions: 3.75" D x 6.5" W x 2.75" H (9.5 cm x 16.5 cm x 7.0 cm) Weight: 4 lbs. (1.8 kg) Warranty: 1 Year
