Product information

BioLon® contains highly engineered, ultrapure biosynthetic hyaluronic acid (1%) with optimised viscosity in an easy to use 1ml syringe which is designed to be bubble free. BioLon provides the necessary viscosity and molecular weight to ensure high surgical performance and predictability. BioLon guarantees safety and maximum efficacy in each surgical procedure. It can be reliably used wherever anterior chamber depth maintenance is important. It protects endothelial cells and is easy to remove after the procedure is complete due to its cohesive nature.

BioLon enables optimal conditions for visco-surgery
  • BioLon provides the necessary viscosity and molecular weight to ensure high surgical performance. BioLon guarantees safety and maximum efficacy in each surgical procedure.

  • It can be reliably used wherever anterior chamber depth maintenance is important. It protects endothelial cells and is easy to remove after the procedure is complete due to its cohesive nature.

Ultrapure sodium Hyaluronate
  • With purity a central consideration in choosing a viscoelastic for surgical procedures, BioLon uses highly sophisticated purification methods to produce an ultrapure sodium hyaluronate solution free of nucleic acids, proteins and other impurities.
NaHA is a naturally occurring polysaccharide, ubiquitous in nature and chemically identical in all species. It is found in the vitreous and aqueous humor of the eye, in the synovial fluid surrounding knee and other joints, in skin and in other organs. This high molecular weight, ultra-pure sodium hyaluronate, is manufactured using an efficient biosynthetic process. It is used to lubricate the eye and maintain low intraocular pressure while facilitating surgery to reduce trauma to the corneal endothelium.
