Escalon Receives FDA Clearance For Sonomed MASTER-VU B-Scan System
Escalon Medical's Sonomed subsidiary received 510(k) clearance from FDA to market the MASTER-VU ophthalmic B-scan ultrasound system.
The MASTER-VU 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 will be a valuable addition to our product line in both the U.S. and international marketplace."
The MASTER-VU 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:
