BVI® expands Malosa® single-use instrument range in the US

  • BVI broadens its widely popular range of Malosa® single-use ophthalmic instruments to span cataract, oculoplastic, corneal refractive procedures and other office-based procedures
  • Malosa single-use instruments help surgeons focus on precision, reduce cross contaminations, and increase operating room efficiency

WALTHAM, Mass., Sept. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- BVI, the fastest growing diversified company in ophthalmology, today announced the extension of its Malosa® range of single-use ophthalmic instruments in the US. The US Malosa portfolio will now include specialty instruments for use in corneal refractive surgery, complementing the existing single-use product range for cataract, oculoplastic and office-based procedures, such as LASIK, PRK and SMILE®.

Malosa high quality, surgical steel, single-use instruments offer a strong alternative to reusable instruments in terms of consistency, OR efficiency, and potential reduction of surgical cross contamination. With the increasing need for operational efficiency, Malosa single-use instruments reduce the need for instrument cleaning, sterilization and repairs.

"We are excited to bring the Malosa refractive instrument range to the US, complementing the current US Malosa portfolio," said Darin Dixon, VP of US Sales for BVI. "We know that ophthalmic surgeons have an extremely high bar for quality and precision, and by expanding our existing single-use Malosa portfolio, we have a best in class solution for cataract, oculoplastic, and now, refractive procedures. The Malosa range offers US surgeons a single-use option eliminating the operational inconsistency sometimes found with reusable instruments. Based on the work we have done with leading ophthalmic surgeons across the world, we are confident that these instruments will exceed expectations."

Dr Jay Bansal of LaserVue Eye Centre welcomed the launch, saying: "I've had the opportunity to trial the newest addition of Malosa instruments for refractive procedures over the past several months. I am very impressed by the quality and precision they offer, and the performance has been excellent. It is great that these will now be available across the US."
