Zeus to Present at Digestive Disease Week in Chicago

Zeus Research & Development will be one of the presenters at Digestive Disease Week, addressing the topic of invention of new devices in interventional gastroenterology

ORANGEBURG, S.C., May 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Zeus, Inc., a leader in polymer extrusions and material science, announces it has been invited to present at Digestive Disease Week in Chicago on June 1, 2009. Zeus presenters Dr. Bruce Anneaux, Ph.D. and GI Endoscopy Specialist Aubrey Sanders will address possible polymer selection for building new and innovative medical devices for interventional procedures in gastrointestinal endoscopy and Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES).

Digestive Disease Week is the world's largest meeting of researchers, physicians, and other professionals in the fields of gastroenterology, endoscopy, gastrointestinal surgery, and hepatology.

When Dr. Naomi Nakao, a prolific inventor of 20 years extended her invitation to Zeus to speak at the conference, she prefaced her invitation as follows: "Being an inventor can be a lonely journey, but Zeus has faithfully stood by me for these many years. Zeus engineers have generously helped me during my research and development of the many prototypes of my inventions. I was gently brought down to earth by Zeus engineers, learning what is, and is not, possible in building my devices. Sharing their company's varied capabilities, I learned from Zeus' engineers that things I did not think possible could be built because of the enormous imagination that Zeus puts into its colossal ensemble of shapes, forms, colors, and sizes of the catheters and other sub-components that it has to offer."

The Zeus presentation will focus primarily on developing industry advancements in polymer science with an emphasis on gastroenterology and endoscopy of the present and future. At the conclusion of the presentation, Dr. Anneaux and Ms. Sanders will participate in an open panel discussion.

Commenting on his presentation Dr. Bruce Anneaux, Corporate Manager, Research & Development for Zeus, said, "We are excited about the opportunity to present at a gathering of this scope and significance. Both the Zeus presentation and open panel discussion seek to enhance attendees' understanding of polymer selection and create an open dialogue among the innovators in gastroenterology/endoscopy medical device industry."

Bob Jennings, Vice President for Medical Sales and Marketing, said, "Zeus has an evolving history of exploring and advancing innovative concepts and processes in the medical device industry. It is this commitment that allows us to serve as a resource for inventors, physicians, and other professionals who strive to enhance medical applications and ultimately, improve patient care."
