SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Invuity, Inc. (NASDAQ:IVTY), a leading medical technology company focused on minimal access surgery, today announced the reintroduction and full commercial launch of PhotonBlade™, a dynamic precision illuminator with enhanced energy. This version of PhotonBlade includes enhancements to improve energy delivery and optimize illumination performance. The Company anticipates shipping product to customers in the next few weeks.
PhotonBlade represents a new technology platform for Invuity, delivering directed, thermally cool illumination at the precise point of surgical treatment. PhotonBlade’s novel energy design consists of a proprietary insulated blade for precise cutting and coagulation of tissue, with minimal effect on adjacent tissue.

said Invuity Chief Executive Officer Philip Sawyer. “PhotonBlade exemplifies the company’s strong commitment to providing a broad array of innovative solutions to our customers.”
