History

Medical technology since 1851

Erbe Elektromedizin GmbH was founded in 1851 in Tuebingen, Germany. Under the 5th generation of managing directors, Christian O. Erbe and Reiner Thede, this family business develops, produces and sells systems for electrosurgery, vessel sealing, argon plasma coagulation, cryosurgery and hydrosurgery. Erbe is considered a pioneer in electrosurgery, a technology that utilizes high-frequency currents in order to cut through, coagulate or devitalize tissue, or to seal blood vessels.
