Bovie Medical Corporation (the "Company") (NYSE Amex: BVX), a manufacturer and marketer of electrosurgical products, today announced that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Medical Illumination International, Inc. San Fernando, CA to bring a new generation of medical lighting to the medical community in the United States. This line of LED lights features a 4300 degree Kelvin white light which uses half the electricity and produces a small fraction of the heating intensity of the old standard halogen lighting. The LED lights include an extended life of 50,000 hours which is approximately twenty-five times longer than halogen lighting.
The agreement also includes Bovie exclusively distributing Medical Illumination's non-LED medical lights as well as any new LED lights under development.
Rob Saron, president of Bovie Medical stated, "We are excited to add this domestic manufactured line of medical lighting as a compliment to our electrosurgical products, since it represents the same call point for both our sales representatives and distribution partners."
