Charter Guidewires

Defy deformation at every turn.

The Charter Guidewire is designed to resist deformation and provide precise torque control to facilitate placement and distal access through tortuous anatomy. From one-piece core wire construction for torque transmission along the central axis, to a less traumatic flexible platinum coil tip, the core to tip features of this new guidewire are designed to provide the control and precision required for your peripheral vascular needs.

Stainless Steel Ground Core Wire

  • 1 piece construction eliminates abrupt transitions
  • Core to tip design for pushability, precise steering, tip control and torqueability

Polyurethane Jacket with Tungsten and Platinum Coil Tip

  • Highly visible under fluoroscopy
  • Flexible, less traumatic platinum coil tip enhances shapeability and shape retention

Proprietary Manufacturing Process

  • Refines the core wire material for precise control and predictable, consistent tip response and shapeholding memory
  • Minimal core twisting during rotation enhances tip responsiveness and maneuverability
  • Strength and flexibility to resist kinking

PTFE and GLYCE™ Hydrophilic Coatings

  • Lubricious hydrophilic coating (distal) and PTFE (proximal) reduce friction and increase trackability
  • Tie layer adherence to the polyurethane jacket creates a primer effect enhancing durability
