Spetzler-Malis Dual Irrigating

You get the same superb non-stick coagulation performance—plus integrated irrigation.

Malis Bipolar Generator and Irrigator system

The Malis Bipolar Generator combines an innovative and intuitive user interface, the performance of DUAL WAVE waveform technology and proven digital electronics that delivers precision controlled power and irrigation in one package.

The oversized color display is exceptionally easy to read and use. Multifunctional on-screen controls and dedicated CUT and COAG knobs let you make setting changes quickly and accurately. Programmable user profiles guarantee convenient and consistent setup.

The Malis Bipolar Generator continues to use the asynchronous, aperiodic Malis waveform coupled with ultra-low output to deliver consistent control during coagulation. High-power and micro-bipolar CUT and COAG modes make the bipolar a versatile tool that meets the multiple demands of neurosurgery.

Leveraging more than 40 years of continuous product improvements, the Malis Bipolar Generator is one of the most robust bipolar electrosurgical platforms available today. In addition to maximizing uptime, you’ll boost efficiency by using tested accessories and existing consumables that reduce the need for additional training and duplicate inventories.
