At our dual Artas & Neograft center in Houston, we use our devices with minimal to no suction and have published peer-reviewed work on this subject. In essence, the devices are used simply as hand tools to loosen the grafts allowing for manual plucking. This video shows the suction device in the Artas robot which is only used to slightly elevate the grafts. The purpose is not to have so much, and such extreme, suction as to drag the grafts through the tubes. It is just to get them loose and just above skin level for optimal grasping with our forceps.
