MC Medical agrees to be the exclusive distributor of FloShield products in Japan
Date:8/22/2014

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MC Medical, a subsidiary of Mitsubishi Corporation (MCM), and Minimally Invasive Devices Inc. (MID), a Columbus, OH medical device company, have formally agreed to an exclusive partnership to distribute the FloShield laparoscopic and robotic visualization system in Japan. It is anticipated that FloShield will be approved for sale in Japan in the latter half of 2015.

MCM has a long-time experience and an extensive product portfolio in endoscopic surgery market in Japan.  FloShield will allow their surgeon customers to maintain a clear and consistent view during laparoscopic surgery, eliminating loss of vision and surgical interruptions

FloShield is the first laparoscopic device that offers "Active Lens Protection", a moving curtain of gas over the lens that prevents condensation, fluids and blood products from settling on the optics during surgery, preventing an impaired surgical view for the operating team. Dr. Wayne Poll, the CEO of MID stated: "We are enthusiastic about partnering with MCM and their sales professionals who see laparoscopic surgeons struggling everyday with loss of vision from condensation, smoke and/or debris on the scope. The next transformation in surgical video technology is not more pixels, but a solution that actually prevents loss of vision from even occurring."

Stephen Forden, the VP of marketing for MID stated: "The importance of clear, consistent, and uninterrupted vision during surgery is obvious. FloShield provides a commercial advantage to a video company by preventing loss of vision, while their competitors' scopes frequently become soiled and require interruption for manual cleaning. A surgical video system is only as good as the clarity of the optics. Someday surgeons will look back with disbelief that they used to experience video that became frequently obscured."
