IRIDEX Expands ENT Laser Applications
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- IRIDEX Corporation (Nasdaq: IRIX) announced the introduction of its new XP Module - a high power factory installed option for the IRIDEX IQ 532 green laser system. The IQ 532 XP is a multifunctional device that can be utilized by both ear, nose and throat (ENT) surgeons and ophthalmologists - expanding overall utilization and making a laser investment more attractive.
The optional XP module doubles the power of the standard IRIDEX IQ 532, facilitating the rapid and efficient treatment of tissue while limiting unwanted thermal effects and provides ENT surgeons with a portable KTP 532 nm laser system that is optimized for their clinical needs.
"We developed the XP module in response to the growing demand from ENT surgeons for higher power output, particularly for use when treating laryngeal pathologies," commented Theodore A. Boutacoff, President & CEO. "When used with our family of ENT probes, physicians are now able to expand their treatment capabilities and achieve clinically effective results in less time. The IQ 532 with the XP Module and the IRIDEX family of ENT probes are optimized for the treatment of soft tissue/vascular lesions of the airway and larynx, including polyps and adhesions."
The addition of the XP Module and FlexFiber delivery devices to our existing ENT product line provides additional sales opportunities and demonstrates IRIDEX's dedication to providing physicians with innovative tools to enhance surgical procedures while improving patient and clinical outcomes.
