EFTIAR Octane and EFTIAR Decalin

PFCL in vials and in prefilled syringes


EFTIAR offers the vitreoretinal surgeon a temporary tamponade for efficient re-attachment of the retina, release of subretinal fluid, dissection of fibro-vascular proliferation and controlling retinal bleeding.

Maximized purity.
> 90% fluorinated.
Chemically inert liquid.
Transparent, colorless and optically clear.
Low refractive index.
High specific gravity.
Smooth flattening of a detached retina.
Passive drainage of subretinal fluid.


EFTIAR Octane and Decalin in prefilled syringe:

Easy-to-use syringe format with flange extender for easy handling.
Avoids requirement for transfer from vial to syringe.
Range includes both Octane and Decalin.
Available in 5ml and 7ml format.

D.O.R.C. PFCL Purity Standards

• D.O.R.C.s PFCL manufacturing method uses a proprietary and stringent production and purification process. • These ensure removal of critical impurities (H-value ≤ 10ppm, 1H-value (for Octane only) ≤ 1ppm). • Verification of purity levels is confirmed using analytical methods specifically developed to detect critical impurities. • Using independent analytical methods - sourcing of raw materials is continuously controlled. • Deploying a multi-step purification process.

Indications for use

EFTIAR Octane and EFTIAR Decalin liquid is indicated for use as an intra-operative tool for temporary flattening and manipulation of the retina during surgical treatment of retinal detachment, in particular : • Retinal detachment with giant tears. • Retinal detachment with proliferative vitreoretinopathy. • Traumatic Retinal Detachment. • Luxated Lenses. • Intraocular haemorrhage.

As surgeons, we need to have the safest possible liquids for our surgeries: ask a producer for a detailed certificate of purification
