The Echoplex® coating uses the hardness of microscopic glass beads, which are distributed in an insulating polymer.
The high concentration of glass beads intensifies ultrasound reflection.
The quantity of glass beads has been precisely calculated to maximise reflection whilst minimising artefacts. This makes Echoplex® clearly visible during insertion without obscuring the surrounding anatomy.
Thanks to this coating, the needle body is echogenic right to the tip.
