Lumenis Unveils its new Moses™ Technology at European Association of Urology Annual Congress

Del

YOKNEAM, Israel, 2017-03-22 11:22 CET (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lumenis Ltd., the world’s largest energy-based medical device company for surgical, aesthetic and ophthalmic applications, announces the upcoming launch of its new Moses™ holmium technology in a range of launch events at the 32nd annual European Association of Urology (EAU) Congress, taking place in London from March 24-27, 2017.

Moses™ is a new breakthrough patent pending technology that redefines holmium lithotripsy technology as it exists today. The unique Moses technology is designed to significantly reduce retropulsion during lithotripsy, enabling less stone migration and a more efficient procedure. Moses™ technology includes a proprietary combination of holmium lasers and fibers that optimize holmium energy transmission allowing the surgeon more control regardless of the working distance between the fiber and the stone. The Moses™ tailored premium fiber range of 200, 365, and 550 D/F/L is designed for optimal energy transmission and durability. Additionally, the Moses™ 200 D/F/L fiber allows surgeons to treat stones in difficult to reach locations, and enables smooth initial fiber insertion through a fully deflected scope.

Moses™ initial clinical experience was conducted by Prof. Mostafa Elhilali of McGill University Health Center Department of Urology in Montreal, Canada, a leading global expert in the field of urology. As part of the EAU Annual Congress scientific program, Prof. Elhilali will present his findings onsite in a poster presentation and in a dedicated workshop hosted by Lumenis. The clinical experience confirms that Moses™’ unique capabilities provide surgeons with better control during holmium lithotripsy procedures, including stone dusting and stone fragmentation. The data obtained shows a significant reduction in stone retropulsion that may lead to a reduction in stone migration and more efficient lithotripsy procedures.

“My experience with the Moses™ technology shows that it is a true breakthrough in holmium laser lithotripsy, demonstrating enhanced accessibility and significant reduction in retropulsion,” said Prof. Elhilali. “I am keen to continue my clinical work and further explore the potential procedural efficiency of the Moses™ technology.”

“Lumenis is excited to introduce this next generation, breakthrough technology that will revolutionize the world of holmium laser lithotripsy,” said Tzipi Ozer-Armon, CEO of Lumenis. “The invention of Moses™ is a culmination of over 20 years of experience in holmium lasers and our corporate commitment to science and innovation. To date, we have proudly offered industry-leading solutions for patients affected by urinary stones worldwide and look forward to the opportunity to explore clinical outcomes at the next level.”

Moses™ is also being evaluated further by additional leading global experts including Dr. Andrew Symes, Consultant Urological Surgeon, Brighton & Sussex University Hospital NHS Trust, UK, who noted: “The Moses™ technology provides a greater sense of control due to minimized retropulsion. This is particularly valuable when dusting large stones in the kidney, but also when dealing with upper ureteric stones.”

Novel Preclinical Research Tools Provide Humanized Immune Response to Advance Immunotherapeutic Development, Live Webinar Hosted by Crown Bioscience19.10.2017 14:00Pressemelding

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Crown Bioscience, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Crown Bioscience International (TWSE:ticker 6554) and a global drug discovery and development services company providing translational platforms to advance oncology, inflammation, cardiovascular and metabolic disease research, announces a live webinar to be presented by Dr. Michelle Mack, Director of Global Scientific Engagement, entitled "Beyond Syngeneics - Novel Tools for Addressing Human Specificity in Immuno-Oncology."

Crown Bioscience has generated innovative research models to address these obstacles early during preclinical drug development.

Perfectus Aluminum Inc. Responds to Trade Group19.10.2017 13:00Pressemelding

ONTARIO, Calif., Oct. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Perfectus Aluminum Inc. has issued the following: On October 12, 2017 the Aluminum Extruders Council (AEC), an industry group representing largely American aluminum extruders, posted to its blog a false narrative regarding a suit to which Perfectus Aluminum Inc. is a related party. The government is not "seeking unpaid duties from Perfectus for goods brought into the country." Rather, the government is attempting to use a 2017 Department of Commerce determination to assess retroactive antidumping duties on goods imported as early as 2011. It is discouraging that AEC would tout such an obviously egregious government overstep as a "victory" to their members and the industry: were it one of AEC's own members facing such an obvious violation of fair play and due process, it would rightfully argue that government overreach is a threat to manufacturers everywhere. In addition to the hypocrisy of the AEC's promotion of this case, its s
