About Cipher Surgical:

Cipher Surgical is a medical device company established in 2010 with the goal of improving the efficiency and safety of minimally invasive surgery through the development and commercialization of products that maintain uncompromised surgical vision in laparoscopic and robotic surgery procedures.

The OpClear platform has been designed for use in laparoscopic procedures to provide continuous intra-abdominal vision to the surgical team, maintaining a surgical flow associated with fewer surgical errors and shorter operating times.

The OpClear platform uses in-situ on demand CO2 and saline lens wash, minimizing the need for scope removal during a procedure and addressing many of the frustrations associated with visual obstructions. This rapidly clears larger visual obstructions such as blood or particles from energy plumes to provide continuous vision throughout each procedure.
