BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - July 13, 2012) -
Solos Endoscopy, Inc.'s (PINKSHEETS: SNDY
) is pleased to announce that the Company has begun marketing its new endoscopic instrument line, SteriTAP™. Solos' SteriTAP™ Instruments are designed to be the ultimate sterile "take a part" endoscopic instruments of their kind and will be marketed and sold worldwide by Solos Endoscopy.
Solos' SteriTAP™ instruments are also approved to immediately receive the CE Mark, which will allow the product to be marketed in those countries where the CE Mark is required, once Solos Endoscopy receives its proper certifications. The SteriTAP™ instruments are now available and are featured on the Company's website, http://www.solosendoscopy.com/steritap.html. The SteriTAP™ instruments include Dissectors, General Surgery Instruments, Graspers, Gynecology Instruments, Lymphadenectomy Instruments, Needle Holders, Scissors, and Thorascopy Instruments.
According to Reportlinker, the demand for endoscope services is increasing due to an increase in the aging and chronically ill population worldwide. Advancements in endoscopic technologies and inclusion of various types of lighting sources, video cameras, real-time conversion of data into three-dimensional images are also driving this market. Endoscopy procedures have become highly effective in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of cancer patients. Many now consider endoscopy to have become the gold standard for cancer diagnosis and treatment, as well as for many other medical conditions.
There are other reasons that minimally invasive surgical (MIS) procedures like endoscopy are gaining ground in the overall medical arena. Endoscopic procedures, in general, have a lower cost than their counterparts in traditional surgery. In some cases, the patient only needs light sedation as opposed to full anesthesia. Reduced post surgery monitoring time is required for patients undergoing endoscopic procedures. Finally, there is usually a significantly reduced period the patient has to stay in the hospital along with reduced ancillary costs associated with a post-surgical hospital stay.
The SteriTAP™ Instrument line is part of the extensive product line of Solos Endoscopy instruments, which are all featured on the Company's website, http://www.solosendoscopy.com/.
