Iridex Receives FDA Clearance for New Family of Laser Systems


The FDA has granted 510(k) clearance for Iridex’s family of IQ laser systems.

The IQ 532, IQ 577, IQ 630-670 and IQ 810 systems and their associated delivery devices can now be used in ophthalmology, ear, nose, throat, otolaryngology and dermatology applications.

The systems deliver laser energy in CW-Pulse, MicroPulse or LongPulse modes. The company said it will launch the IQ 577 first as it provides a wavelength not available in laser systems already on the market.
