Complete protection for stent and balloon delivery systems

Centurion has a unique design that surpasses conventional protectors to protect stents and balloons from damage during device assembly, packaging, transportation, catheter unloading and physician use.

The protective catheter packaging is generally postponed until the end of the product development cycle. As a consequence, inferior conventional stent and balloon protectors are developed leading to an increase of catheter rejection rates.

Why compromise the delivery of
your device?

Without adequate device protection the risk of delivering a defective device significantly increases.

Protect your Catheter

Protect your Balloon

Protect you Drug Eluding Stent

That’s why Centurion is the right choice for stent and balloon protection.

Risk Factors with Conventional Protectors

Risk of stent defect during final packaging and transportation

Drug coating compromised during device withdrawal from its packaging

Catheter tip is compressed by an un-encased mandrel stylet

Conventional protector remains in the packaging upon removal of the device

Complete Protection

  • Centurion ensures the mandrel stylet is securely encased protecting the catheter tip during assembly, final packaging and transportation.
  • Centurion suspends the stent and balloon in its protective tubing to prevent abrasion between the stent, balloon and packaging.
  • Centurion ensures successful catheter withdrawal from its packaging, eliminating protector ‘hang up’.
  • Centurion protects against product mishandling.
  • Centurion allows successful stent deployment promoting patient safety.
