Revolutionary Advancements

BiFlex® and TriFlex® Torque Coils
Built for performance, Heraeus BiFlex® and TriFlex® Torque Coils offer unique customizable designs that deliver high torque transfer while maintaining flexibility and 1:1 positioning even at high rotational speeds.

NeoTorqueTM Straightening
The Heraeus NeoTorqueTM process technology builds excellent torque response into our families of nitinol and Triton® alloy guidewires. Unmatched torque response maximizes control and performance in a variety of clinical applications.

Triton® Alloy
The Triton is a "next generation" alloy that retains the superelastic properties of nitinol, but has a higher peak loading force. According to bench testing, compared to traditional binary nitinol this should result in

  • Superior support profile
  • Better pushability / column strength
  • Superior torqueability

ZTG® (Zero Transition Guidewire)
The ZTG guidewire technology has an atraumatic core-to-coil transition. This seamless transition aids in catheter advancement over the wire and also minimizes vascular trauma and vasospasm.
