- Coherent's Green Photocoagulator Approved by FDA
SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 19 -- Coherent, Inc. reports that its Novus Verdi Diode Pumped Green Photocoagulator has been cleared by the US Food & Drug Administration for ophthalmic use. The laser was brought to market through a collaborative agreement between Coherent and France's Quantel Medical, the company that first introduced a diode-pumped green photocoagulator in 1995.
The refined optical design of Coherent's fiber-based laser delivery devices, coupled with Quantel's quality controlled manufacturing of the laser console, add up to a product offering that meets the exacting standards that ophthalmologists have come to expect from Coherent, said Peter Falzon, Coherent's Director of Ophthalmic Marketing.
