BILLERICA MA, August 17, 2018 – AST Products, Inc. has received EU CE-marking approval for the Asqelio™ Preloaded IOL Delivery System, a new and easy-to-use intraocular lens injector system preloaded with a hydrophobic intraocular lens (IOL).

The Asqelio™ Preloaded IOL Delivery System is ergonomically designed with safe, efficient and reliable control features. It’s also error-free from IOL-loading with no IOL-touching. The incision size is 2.2mm to 2.4mm across all diopters. Nevertheless, the preloaded Asqelio™ IOL provides excellent optical outcomes for life with sustainable clear vision. “The adding of the newly designed Asqelio™ Preloaded IOL Delivery System to our product pipeline will bring tremendous values to not only the patients, the doctors, but also to AST Products,” said Carl Cummings, President of AST Products, “Our team has worked very hard on designing this creative preloaded IOL delivery system to ensure a safe, simple and effective lens delivery. And, we are proud that we finally obtained the CE-marking approval for this
product.”
