WAYNE, Pa., Jan. 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Escalon Medical Corp. (Nasdaq Capital Market: ESMC) today announced that its Sonomed, Inc. subsidiary received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market the MASTER-VU(TM) ophthalmic B-scan ultrasound system. The MASTER-VU(TM) System consists of a B-scan probe that can be interfaced to a standard personal computer (via a USB cable connection) using Sonomed's proprietary software, thereby converting the personal computer into an ophthalmic ultrasound system. Sonomed plans to commence shipments of the product in the United States immediately.
Barry Durante, Sonomed's President stated: "The FDA clearance, along with the previously received CE certification, will allow Sonomed to market this new breakthrough instrumentation worldwide. With computers becoming standard in most ophthalmic physician offices, purchasing the probe and software offers complete portability for use in multiple locations. Loading the software in computers in multiple offices allows the physician to carry only the probe from office to office. We expect that the MASTER-VU(TM) will be a valuable addition to our product line in both the U.S. and international marketplace."
The MASTER-VU(TM) System adds to Escalon's wide range of top quality
and market leading ultrasound systems. This flexible and easy-to-use
instrument offers simple installation, low maintenance and immediate user
productivity. The MASTER-VU features include:
-- Measurement calipers for multiple intraocular measurements.
-- Ability to save both 30-second "clips" as well as individual frames on
a scrolling frame manager.
-- On-screen annotation capability, including text and graphics.
-- Easy installation and low maintenance.
