Despite the US launch occurring just recently in June, we are on track to exceed our first year projections on the new compact system.
Fremont, CA (PRWEB) October 9, 2010
Optovue Inc., the company that launched the first FDA cleared fourier/spectral domain OCT in the US, announced it has shipped the 600th iVue™ compact SD-OCT system in early September from its Fremont California manufacturing facility.
“We continue to see accelerating growth in the demand for the iVue system, both domestically and internationally,” stated Paul Kealey, Vice President of Marketing for Optovue. “Despite the US launch occurring just recently in June, we are on track to exceed our first year projections on the new compact system. The streamlined GUI, ease-of-use and short “chair time” are helping with patient flow in clinical practices. This functional simplicity, along with the exceptional clinical value of retina, glaucoma and anterior segment imaging as standard features, is proving to be the right combination for the broader eye care market.”
