Ophthalmic gas

Arceole is a ready-to-use injection set of ophthalmic gas C3F6 SF6 C2F6 for inner retinal tamponade. It facilitates the use of the gases in the operating theatre. The single-use, apyrogenic sterile set comes with a validated 0.22 µm filter, syringe and cannula.

Improves safety

Asepsis is guaranteed and the mixture is facilitated for controlled manipulation by the surgeon or nurses.

Facilitates the air/gas mixture

The set is ready to use: it enables preparation of the gases for tamponade to be done by a single person.

Saves you time and money

  • A single person for preparation and injection.
  • Neither investment nor maintenance of equipment.
  • No purchase of accessories, nor surplus stock.

Guarantees the quality of the mixture

Pressurised packaging guarantees the purity of the gas and the mixture throughout the product’s lifetime, and avoids the concentration of impurities as and when the liquefied bottled gas is used.

Also exists in MULDI-DOSE format

The set is composed of :

  • 1 reservoir containing 30 ml of non-sterile gas for ophthalmic use
  • 3 GS sets each containing 1 50 ml plastic syringe, 1 sterilising filter and the connection to the container
  • 3 patient wrist bands
  • 3 patient traceability labels.


PFCL ARCALINE and ARCOTANE are perioperative liquids used to help the surgeon in the treatment of retinal tears.

Improves safety

Their purity and chemical stability reduce possible interactions with the different intraocular tissues. Elimination of C-H groups and fluorides is particularly important.

  • Arcaline perfluorodecalin is guaranteed to 97% purity
  • Arcotane perfluorooctane is guaranteed to 99% purity

With superior guaranty

A final validation of the non-toxicity using biological tests.

All products release is depending on the certification of their non-toxicity on Human ARPE retinal cells and Porcine retinal explants carried out by IOBA Institute * following their protocol.


Multi-use tool for vitreoretinal surgery

PFCLs are perioperative liquids used to help surgeons to peel membranes, remove sub-retinal liquids, reapply the retina and fix it for endophotocoagulation.

Fractionated silicone oil

Arciolane is a fractionated, purified, sterile and apyrogenic silicone oil for completely safe vitreoretinal surgery. It comes in a vial or syringe. In two viscosities, 1300 and 5500 cSt.

Ideal for long-term tamponade: Reduces emulsification phenomena

Thanks to a unique process for extraction of low molecular weight polymers, Arcadophta reduces emulsification phenomena and facilitates the long-term use of Arciolane.

Dedicated packaging for ophthalmic use

For greater security and ease of use, Arciolane is packaged in a syringe made of thick blown glass, reducing the risk of fracture when subjected to strong pressure. It can be connected to all the Vitreotome compressed air systems.

Customised accessories

Arcadophta offers a panel of connection kits (ARC for single use, or resterilisable APIS) for all Dorc, Corneal, Alcon, B&L, Oertli systems, etc.
