SpectraScience Gets European Approval for Laser Biopsy System
MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 12 -- SpectraScience Inc.'s noninvasive biopsy system has been approved by the European regulatory authorities for commercial use in the European Union. The system lets doctors who perform endoscopy of the colon use a laser to optically scan the patient's tissue - providing an instant diagnosis of the tissue without having to physically remove samples from the body.
This is truly revolutionary in that it will save doctors, hospitals, the country's healthcare system and the public at large many millions of dollars in annual capital equipment expenditure requirements, said Thomas Motter, the company's Chairman and CEO.
