What does this mean?
The decision as to whether to use a CE marked medical device will always rest with the healthcare professional, but the MHRA will always advocate that a CE marked device should be used, where one is available.
By purchasing BOC’s CE marked medical liquid nitrogen, you get the assurance that the product has been manufactured correctly and is suitable for its intended use.
Applications include removal of:
Some skin cancers
In addition, medical liquid nitrogen can be used for the storage of biological material, such as cells, tissues, blood, gametes at cryogenic temperatures, for subsequent medical procedures and analysis.
Whatever treatments you offer, if there is a cryosurgery element, then BOC can help. Please call one of our team on 0161 930 6010.
Liquid nitrogen is a refrigerated liquefied gas with a boiling point of -196° C
In its liquid form nitrogen is used as a cryogen for many applications where very low temperatures or rapid temperature reduction is required.
Nitrogen can also be used as a component in many gas medical mixtures such as lung function test gases.
Nitrogen, compliant with the European pharmacopeia monograph for low oxygen nitrogen, is used as an inert gas for the storage of medicinal products that are susceptible to oxidation in the presence of air.
Nitrogen is also used as a purging and inerting gas by the pharmaceutical industry in the manufacture of medicinal products.
The cold temperature of liquid nitrogen can be used to safely store medical or research samples such as blood, stem cells and plasma.
