J-Plasma: A Matter of Energy
Just as a liquid can be excited into a gas state, plasma is created by adding energy to a gas. J-Plasma uses helium gas, passed across an energized electrode – which can also be extended for an enhanced cutting effect – to create a focused stream of low-current cold plasma. With its high level of precision and minimal thermal spread, J-Plasma can enable and improve surgical and nonsurgical treatment across a broad range of specialties and procedures.
Introducing Cool-Coag Technology
The patent-pending Cool-Coag technology is fundamentally different from the precision of the cold atmospheric plasma (CAP) on which the J-Plasma energy is based. Cool-Coag technology combines the power of a monopolar coagulation waveform with added versatility from the flow of helium gas. This allows for a single device to be used as a standard monopolar pencil for precise contact hemostasis and as a non-contact ‘spray’ called plasma beam coagulation that can be used for wider areas of coagulation/ablation. With Cool-Coag technology, the new J-Plasma handpieces can deliver three distinctly different energy modalities – further increasing the utility and versatility of the J-Plasma system.
The lightest of the stable, noble gases, helium can be ionized at very low energy. The result is a single modality that can cut, coagulate and ablate with extraordinary flexibility. From debulking of disease on and around critical structures to cutting and lysis of dense tissue, helium plasma is unique in its ability to adapt to the dynamic requirements of the operating suite. And J-Plasma is the only device that can do this.
