      Avinger Offers A Better Mousetrap, But A Lot Of Challenges

      Summary: Adding high-quality imaging to mechanical atherectomy could be a powerful combination that finally ignites a $500 million-plus market that has long frustrated med-tech watchers. Avinger is short on cash and has a lot of spending to do to drive market share into the teens and beyond; dilution seems like a certainty today. An EV/revenue multiple between 4.5x and 5x supports a $7 FV today, and high-growth med-tech stocks can trade well above 5x forward revenue during the good times.

      Optical Coherence Tomography, a new tool for pre-clinical research applications

      Leica Microsystems now offers Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), imaging systems which utilize optical interferometry, similar to holography, to produce images of internal tissue microstructures. This new and non-invasive tool can be applied to clinical ophthalmology and pre-clinical research . Besides that, it uses low-power, near-infrared light to create cross-sectional views of the target structure. Thanks to these characteristics, the Optical Coherence Tomography imaging systems provide customers with non-contact real-time imaging for enhanced visualization, publishing, examination, and diagnosis.

      A research effort involving Laser Zentrum Hannover (LZH) in Germany is developing a new, laser-based treatment for presbyopia – the condition that impacts near vision in people from around the age of 40 onwards. At the moment presbyopia – caused by the age-related stiffening of the lens in those affected – is usually treated with simple solutions like reading or bifocal glasses, with multi-focal contact lenses from the likes of Bausch + Lomb becoming available more recently. Some laser procedures have also been developed, but if successful the LZH-led project could lead to a "gentle" new femtosecond laser technique that makes tiny cuts in ...
