LipoFilter® is a highly effective, affordable and reliable canister-style filter that works with most aspiration systems.
The LipoFilter uses a gravity-decanting system to separate fluids from adipose tissue. Live fat cells behave much like floating balloons that rise naturally and quickly to the top; while the damaged, emulsified cells behave like leaking balloons that remain trapped in the solution for a longer time and rise slowly, if at all.
These damaged cells are not useful in fat transfer and are easily filtered as waste by the LipoFilter, which separates most of the fluid from the fat mass when operated properly.
The dual-chamber design of the LipoFilter allows separation and removal of fluids while isolating the tissue within a closed, sterile environment.
Surgeons know that effective fat separation requires ample capacity to wash and decant harvested fat. Therefore, with an overall volume of 3000ml (three liters), and a maximum use capacity of 2500ml, the large-volume LipoFilter achieves results that smaller harvesting filters can’t approximate.
