BURNABY, British Columbia – October 29, 2013 – LED Medical Diagnostics Inc. (“LED Medical, the Company”) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a partnership with Sinclair Dental (“Sinclair”) for the distribution of the VELscope Vx® Enhanced Oral Assessment System.
“We are pleased to align ourselves with one of the fastest growing, full-service dental supply companies in Canada to expand distribution of the VELscope Vx® into more Canadian dental practices,” commented David Gane, LED Medical’s President and CEO. “Sinclair has an experienced team of over 500 individuals operating within 10 regional offices ready to represent our technology across the country. We are impressed with Sinclair’s leadership within the industry and their responsiveness in bringing innovative solutions into the markets they serve.”
As the most powerful technology available for assisting in the discovery of oral mucosal abnormalities, VELscope Vx® plays a key role in the early discovery of such abnormalities, which can be critically important in the fight against oral cancer. Detecting tissue abnormalities as early as possible is potentially life-saving, and VELscope Vx® technology is proven effective and minimally invasive and seamlessly can be implemented in a patient’s routine dental check-ups.
Ali Nowtash, Sinclair’s Director, Marketing & Purchasing said, “We are pleased to distribute the VELscope Vx system within the Canadian market. As the leader in the discovery of oral mucosal abnormalities, LED Medical has created significant awareness about oral cancer and the benefits of early diagnosis. We share LED’s commitment to the early detection of lesions and tissue abnormalities and look forward to bringing this award-winning technology to our clients.”
VELscope Vx®’s distinctive blue-spectrum light causes the soft tissues of the mouth to naturally fluoresce. Healthy tissues fluoresce in distinct patterns that are visibly disrupted by trauma or disease, such as neoplastic lesions, chemical irritation, side-effects from medication, thermal damage, fungal, viral or bacterial infections. Use of the VELscope Vx® allows a wide variety of oral abnormalities to be discovered, often before they’re visible to the unassisted eye.
