Havel's Incorporated Announces the Release of Four New Innovative Ultrasound Needles
Date:7/13/2010

CINCINNATI, July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- /Havel's Incorporated/ - Havel's Incorporated, the Cincinnati-based market leader in echogenic needles, announces the release of a new line of needles with Micro Laser Etching near the tip.  "I am very excited about the new MLE™ echogenic feature because it does not affect the inner diameter of the needle, allowing users to pass wires or catheters through the cannula without obstruction," says John Barrett, vice president of sales & marketing for Havel's Incorporated.  The new MLE™ technology allows for a much larger variety of sizes.

Known for their patented Corner Cube Reflectors, or CCR® marks, Havel's revolutionized the ultrasound needle industry.  CCR® marks near the tip of the needle reflect sound waves back to the transducer, showing anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists exactly where the tip of the needle is under ultrasound.   Instead of CCR® reflectors, which slightly reduce the inner diameter of the needle, the new needles have Micro Laser Etching, or MLE™, near the tip to reflect sound waves back to the transducer.  The tip is therefore visible under ultrasound with no reduction of inner diameter.  "We hope to eventually use the new MLE™ technology on a variety of products for use throughout the hospital," Barrett says.  

The new needles include the EchoBlock® PTC for Ultrasound Guided Pain Injections and the EchoBlock® PTC30 for Ultrasound Guided Peripheral Nerve Blocks.  The AccuTarg® Quincke and the AccuTarg® Chiba point needles feature the MLE™ reflectors and can be used in radiology and for ultrasound guided procedures.
