Bolder Surgical achieves joint development milestone with Intuitive Surgical
Bolder Surgical is excited to acknowledge the U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance of the da Vinci Energy E-100 generator from Intuitive Surgical (NASDAQ: ISRG), a global technology leader in robotic-assisted minimally invasive surgery.
The introduction of the new generator is a result of the previously announced licensing and joint development agreement between Intuitive and Bolder Surgical. This launch represents an important milestone established in the agreement between the two companies.
The E-100 advanced bipolar generator is compatible with the da Vinci X and da Vinci Xi systems, and will power two advanced energy instruments in the da Vinci Energy portfolio, Vessel Sealer Extend and SynchroSeal™.
“We are extremely pleased to achieve this milestone in the joint development agreement with Intuitive Surgical, which extends greater access to precise vessel-sealing technology to the broader adult surgical market,” said Robert Kline, CEO of Bolder Surgical.
