Bovie Medical Corporation (BVX) Reveals That J-Plasma Performs Well In All Surgeries


7/10/2012 7:41:31 AM

MELVILLE, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Bovie Medical Corporation (the “Company”) (NYSE MKT: BVX), a manufacturer and marketer of electrosurgical products, today announced that J-Plasma™ is performing well in both laparoscopic and open surgeries. In multiple patient procedures there was a decrease in smoke, less charring and overall excellent tissue response when compared to current electrosurgery devices. Jeff Rencher, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Surgical Products stated, “The positive results achieved by J-Plasma™ met all expectations as we prepare to embark on an aggressive marketing program for the product.”

He added, “We will continue to introduce J-Plasma™ in a limited format over the next two weeks; however, with the early success of the product in human cases and the continued success and extensive use in live veterinarian cases, we will be moving into expanded markets during the current quarter. Gynecology and Plastic Surgery will continue to be the main focus for J-Plasma™. Additionally, we expect to be performing ENT and General Surgery procedures as the technology establishes itself as a viable alternative to traditional and competitive devices.”

In unrelated news, the Company reported that it’s previously announced anticipated developmental and manufacturing agreement with a large multi-national medical device company remains in the due-diligence and negotiation stage.
