Amplatz Stainless Steel Guidewire Series


The Olympus Amplatz guidewire is a smooth, flat wire wrapped over a stainless steel core designed to provide balanced performance. The super-stiff proximal shaft of the Amplatz helps ensure ultimate pushability and control while the floppy distal shaft helps enable precise, less traumatic advancement. The guidewire’s smooth, rounded ends and PTFE coating are designed to ease passage.
