May 26, 2010 - Santa Clara, CA
Lumenis Ltd., a global developer, manufacturer and seller of laser, light-based and radiofrequency devices for surgical, aesthetic, and ophthalmic applications, announced today the introduction of the VersaPulse P20 desktop holmium at this years American Urological Association annual meeting. Lumenis' booth (#2022) will feature a special area called the 'P-Zone' that will be dedicated to our featured products including the P20 and the PolyScope disposable flexible ureteroscope. The P-Zone is a place where physicians can relax, learn more, interact with the products and enter a drawing to win a HD video recorder.
The VersaPulse P20 is the latest addition to the VersaPulse family of lasers. Its compact desktop size features the same gold-standard 20 watt treatments, but now allows it to sit on a desktop or fit within existing video towers(1) for increased mobility. Lumenis' VersaPulse P20 boasts the highest power in its class, flexible treatment settings and enhanced visibility.
"The VersaPulse P20 puts the power back in the hands of the clinical provider, offering versatility in power settings, location selection and parameter preferences. The P20 delivers the VersaPulse promise of increased reach and access without compromise on performance", said Caroline Coyle, Vice President and General Manager, Surgical. This versatile system is ideally suited for Urology, treating stones and other soft tissue applications, as well as an array of treatments in a variety of other specialties.
PolyScope Disposable Ureteroscope
The PolyScope is an evolutionary step in the advancement in flexible scope technology. The scope features a disposable catheter with a reusable 10,000 pixel fiber optic. This unique concept solves many of the current drawbacks encountered with the use of standard flexible scopes; including the high occurrence of breakage and cost of repair as well as recent contamination issues associated with scope sterilization.
"With contamination concerns at an all time high," stated Dov Ofer, Chief Executive Officer, "I am pleased that Lumenis can offer a disposable scope that will eliminate contamination problems associated with reusable scopes, while still providing the high quality of a non-disposable scope."
Experience presentations by experts while engaging in the multi-sensory P-Zone at the Lumenis Booth
Experienced thought-leading physicians will be at the Lumenis booth to present information on urologic applications offered by the VersaPulse PowerSuite holmium laser and their own experiences using VersaPulse and PolyScope, including Drs. Markus Bader, LMU University of Munich, Akhil K Das, Thomas Jefferson University, Surendra Kumar, Oakwood Annapolis Hospital and Sanjay Razdan, Jackson South Hospital. Presentations are scheduled throughout the duration of the AUA meeting.
Lumenis will also feature a special area within the booth called the 'P-Zone', a unique experience where physicians will relax while viewing a video that highlights the latest products, participate in a hands-on demonstration and enter to win a HD video camera.
