Single-Use Phaco & Refractive Instrument Packs from $30 (ASCRS Booth 859)
Malosa will launch their Core Range of Single-Use Ophthalmic Instruments at the ASCRS ASOA combined meeting in New Orleans. The event, which is the largest congress for anterior segment ophthalmic specialties in the world, takes place at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center between the 6th and 10th of May. Over 5,000 attendees from the world of Ophthalmology will gather in New Orleans hoping to shape the future of eye care worldwide.
Malosa will have their largest presence at the event yet, showcasing their complete range of single-use surgical instruments for Ophthalmology. In addition, the newly-announced Core Range for Phaco and Refractive procedures will be on display allowing delegates to specify their own bespoke single-use procedure packs for Cataract, LASIK and Cross-Linking procedures.
The core range has been developed to give the highest possible quality and adaptability with exceptional value. Phaco and Refractive instrument packs are available from £25 ($30) giving guaranteed fixed-costs per procedure.
Malosa representatives will be on hand at booth 859 to demonstrate the efficiency and costs savings provided by single-use ophthalmic packs.
‘Team Malosa’ will also be hoping to replicate their success from previous years at the annual Run for Sight charity 5km run. The event, which is now in it’s third year pits attendees of the ASCRS against each other in a fun 3-mile run hosted at the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas marine park in New Orleans. The Run for Sight event, which is sponsored by @TearLab and @ShirePLC , raises important funds for the @ASCRSFoundation to aid their work in improving eye care across the US and internationally. Malosa are proud to support the event which has proved to generate a fantastic atmosphere whilst raising awareness and money.
Some highlights of the five-day educational programme include the keynote ASCRS Lecture on Science, Technology, & Medicine which is being presented by Kevin Pho, MD @kevinmd. The lecture, entitled ‘Connect and Be Heard: Make a Difference in Health Care with Social Media’ is certain to draw a huge audience to the Great Hall (A&D) on Sunday morning.
Also of interest is the ever-lively “Pardon the Ophthalmology” section, which is an upbeat and fun-filled ophthalmic take on the popular ESPN “Pardon the Interruption.” Moderators Edward Holland MD and Terry Kim MD lead a fast-paced interactive discussion entitled “Hot Topics in Cornea and External Disease.”
In addition to their Core packs for Phaco and Refractive surgery, Malosa will be showcasing their complete range of single-use instruments for all ophthalmic specialties. New for 2016 are the further refined range of MICS Capsulorhexis Forceps, Instruments for the ZEISS ReLEx LASIK procedures and also single-use instruments for Cross-Linking (CxL) procedures which @Avedro_Inc have recently had cleared by the FDA for treatment across the US.
Also at the Malosa Booth (859) will be the unique ‘dry wet lab’ where attendees can trial Malosa’s range of single-use capsulorhexis forceps using an Alcon LuxOR surgical microscope and a unique range of demonstration eyes. The simulation eyes, which were developed by UK company Simulated Ocular Surgery allow realistic simulation of many surgical ophthalmic procedures including capsulorhexis. The company hope that the simulated system, which provides the same real-world feedback as working on a human eye, will allow trainees to improve their surgical skills safely and effectively.
Malosa are keen to meet any surgeons or practice managers who would be interested in trialing their Core Range Phaco packs at no charge. Throughout the commercial exhibition, Malosa will have free trial sample packs to give away to delegates with everything required to perform a single Phaco Cataract procedure in an efficient, single-use procedure pack.
