Photonics certifies its soft tissue surgery laser stLase

18 Jun '12
Photonics, a portfolio company of venture fund Maxwell Biotech and RVC Seed Fund, both set up with participation of the Russian Venture Company (RVC), has obtained a registration certificate from the federal healthcare supervision agency Roszdravnadzor for its laser module for soft tissue surgery called stLase, RVC reports.

Last year the company completed pre-clinical and clinical trials of the stLase laser. The tests showed stLases tissue coagulation effect, achieved with laser-induced heat radiation and automatic laser power control, resulting in a new efficiency and safety level of tissue surgeries. stLase has also demonstrated a new thermo-opto-acoustic effect that can be applied in dentistry for removing dental calculus in shockwave generation and cavitation modes.

To date, the company has manufactured five pilot devices, with one installed at one of dentist clinics in Moscow. The company is reportedly working on a plan for laser system promotion in the Russian market.

Photonics is a private innovative company founded in 2010 for developing and commercializing new medical lasers for soft tissue (stLase) and hard tissue (atLase) surgeries. The new laser systems are compact in size, multifunctional, ergonomic and not particularly expensive. stLase is mainly used in dentistry, but can also be utilized in noncontact cardiovascular surgery, surgical interventions in obstetrics and gynecology, otorhinolaryngology, proctology, and other medicine fields.
