Bio Octane Plus

• Short term tamponading agent with favourable specific gravity or density
• Colorless, Inert and Laser stable


Bio Octane Plus is a clear, colourless and homogenous liquid composed of 90% Perfluoro-n-Octane and 10% Perfluorohexyloctane.

Physical Properties:

  • Physical density or specific gravity (g / cm3 at 25 ° C) 1.68
  • Refractive index (at 20 ° C) 1.296
  • Viscosity (mPas at 37 ° C) 1.3

Advantages of Bio Octane Plus over Bio Octane (a pure Perfluoro-n-Octane liquid):

  • Comparatively less specific gravity than pure Perfluoro-n-Octane liquid. In addition to this favorable specific gravity, low viscosity and insolubility in water; it is also having ideal interfacial tension and surface tension that prevent Bio Octane Plus penetration beneath the retinal tissue.
  • Bio Octane Plus is chemically and physiologically inert, highly stable, non-toxic and laser stable liquid. These properties make Bio Octane Plus highly suitable for endo photocoagulation and cryotherapy.
  • Pure Perfluoro-n –Octane liquid like Bio Octane is poorly soluble in Silicone oil. Therefore, there is more chance of residual Perfluoro-n-Octane liquid during silicone oil exchange procedure. This remnants may lead to unwanted side effects in the eye.

Perfluorohexyloctane used in Bio Octane Plus is a semi fluorinated alkane which is a very good solvent for silicone oil. Unlike pure perfluoro-n-octane liquid, when used for retinal unfolding Bio Octane Plus achieves a very good transition from any residual droplets of unfolding liquid to silicone oil, during the subsequent injection of silicone oil tamponade.


Bio Octane Plus is a medical device useful in

  • Unfolding Detached Retinas
  • Giant Tears
  • Trauma
  • Laser Coagulation
  • Cryotherapy
  • Refloating Luxated Lenses
  • Short-term Tamponade


  • Bio Octane Plus is supplied in sterile vial containing 7.0 ml solution.
