The development of our vacuum mixing systems started in 1984. In 1993 we introduced Optivac®, a bone cement vacuum mixing, and collection system. With the Optipac® system, launched in 2008, we offer even greater advantages but keeping the benefits of the Optivac system
- Based on Optivac technology since 1993, used in over 35 countries since 2008
- Improving cement fatigue life by mixing and collecting under vacuum. 1-4 SofiPac Technology ensures no glass debris in the bone cement.
- Pre-packed with Zimmer Biomet bone cement products results in minimized exposure to monomer fumes, 6-7 no direct contact with bone cement during mixing and delivery and SoftPac Technology ensures no risk of glass injury
