WHITESTAR Signature Phacoemulsification System

The WHITESTAR Signature System represents a breakthrough in easy lens removal technology, from the company that has pioneered virtually every major breakthrough in phacoemulsification in the past two decades.

Only the WHITESTAR Signature System combines the safety of revolutionary FUSION Fluidics with the optimized cavitation of WHITESTAR Technology. The integration of these technologies creates the versatility needed to remove both hard and soft lenses.

Fusion Fluidics

FUSION Fluidics provides increased chamber stability. It anticipates intraocular changes and proactively adjusts, so chamber stability can be maintained even at higher vacuum and flow settings. Based on pre-set specifications, FUSION Fluidics adapts to changes in vacuum immediately and automatically.

  • FUSION Fluidics surge-prevention technology allows the use of high vacuum and flow settings to reduce phaco time and increase efficiency
  • Improves chamber stability by anticipating occlusions and preemptively adjusting vacuum before occlusion breaks
  • Provides precise, low-flow parameters for complicated cases
  • One-step, auto-loading FUSION Fluidics cassette decreases turnover time

Wireless Advanced Control Pedal

The Wireless Advanced Control Pedal offers you the freedom to achieve the perfect balance of control, confidence and performance!

  • Full wireless range of approximately 3 meters (10 feet) via secure Bluetooth connection
  • Eliminates clutter and the need for cables in the operating room
  • Offers traditional and dual-linear functionality
  • Non-zero start capabilities to increase efficiency
  • Quick and easy touchscreen set-up

Easy-To-Use, Advanced Technology

With the WHITESTAR Signature system’s ergonomic accessories and streamlined interface, the efficiency of the surgical environment is improved. It offers a number of new time-saving features including fast prime/tune, one-step easy-load tubing pack, intuitive user interface, and a sophisticated on-screen help program. It also incorporates today’s advanced technology into cutting-edge features and accessories.

  • One-touch prime/tune cycle is the fastest ever to expedite OR turnover
  • Surgeon settings can be uploaded to any WHITESTAR Signature System from a memory stick
  • Wireless Bluetooth accessories and multi-lingual voice confirmation for hands-free communication and control
  • 17” LCD panel touch screen features one-touch

The FUSION Fluidics tubing pack offers one-step, auto-loading capabilities for instantaneous, accurate vacuum response.

Peristaltic and Venturi On-The-Fly

The WHITESTAR Signature System features the ability to switch between a true peristaltic pump and true venturi pump on-the-fly. During a procedure, the surgeon can switch instantly into venturi mode for additional vacuum and holding power.6 This capability can be extremely useful in multi-surgeon environments and teaching institutions, allowing the flexibility to use both modalities in one system.

  • On-the-fly switching between blow-based peristaltic and vacuum-based venturi pumps all-in-one cassette
  • Safety of system at high vacuum is maintained
  • Pump choice can be preprogrammed by mode or submode
  • Aspiration capabilities 
    • Peristaltic flow up to 60 cc/min
    • Peristaltic maximum vacuum of 650 mm Hf
    • Venturi vacuum up to 600 mm Hg
