Heated Probe Tip
Contains a heating element, which is heated to 100°C (212°F) on the default setting for the destruction of human tissue. The probe tip should only be applied to tissue, which is intended to be ablated. The TC probe shaft is not intended to deliver heat. The probe shaft and sidewall tip has a maximum temperature of 43°C (109°F). Contact with the probe shaft should be avoided during the procedure.
Automated procedure timing with visual and audible indicators – no watch or clock required. Can be set to 20, 30, 40, or 60 seconds and 80, 90, 100, or 120°C.
Heat quickly (5-8 seconds) that can be autoclaved for sterilization.
Lightweight with no tether wires or cables required to connect probe to device and no external power supply required for treatment.

How do I know that thermocoagulation™ is as effective as cryogenic therapy?
Literature studies have validated that the outcome clinical efficacy is as good or better with thermocoagulation™ as compared to freezing. Refer to Duncan’s studies as shown in Dolman’s meta-analysis in the website educational section. The Liger thermocoagulator™ uses the latest state-of-the-art technology to reach and maintain the treatment tip accurately at temperature within 0.2°C.
What is cold coagulation as compared to thermocoagulation™?
How long and at what temperature should pre-cancerous cervical lesions be treated?
How many treatments can I expect with a full battery charge?
How do I clean the Probe?
The full high-level sterilization is given in the IFU that was sent with each unit on page 5 column 2. Many users follow the method below for cleaning and Hi-level disinfection of the probes:
Place the silicon cap firmly over the connector end. Clean any debris off the probe with mild detergent and water using a soft cloth or soft brush, then rinse in clean water.
Place the probes upright in a cup (approximately 5- 6” deep) of ~2.5% gluteraldeyde (Cydex) for 20-60 minutes (some sites use a 0.5% Chlorine solution-Chlorox).
This allows the connector end not to be immersed in solution which is not necessary as the connector end is not inserted into the patient nor contacts the patient and need not be sterilized.
Some users apply a heat cycle of the device to assure that the heated end has reached a sterilization temperature but this is unnecessary and regulatory agencies have not approved this procedure for sterilization. It certainly does sterilize the tip as all viral proteins are denatured above 60’C.
Rinse the probe end (not the connector end with the silicone cap) with clean, non-contaminated water, thoroughly dry the probe in air.
Wrap in clean material to keep it from being contaminated before next use.
The handle can, if needed, be wiped clean with a cloth dampen with a small amount of alcohol.
Is there any difference between the two batteries in the pack?
What is the depth of tissue destruction for a 20 second/100°C cycle?
How does the thermocoagulator™ compare to cryotherapy?
The thermocoagulator™ is quicker, easier and simpler to use. The thermocoagulator™ procedure is approximately 20 seconds per treatment as compared to cryotherapy which requires 11 minutes per treatment. The thermocoagulator™ has easy to use rechargeable batteries that use minimal energy, whereas cryogenic requires costly replacement gas cylinders.
What's the expected lifespan of the batteries?
over a two year period. This included 1300 heating cycles on the two batteries with a recharge on the battery every 30 cycles.
