Milestone Scientific Announces CE Mark Approval of Pre-Assembled Disposable Kit for CompuFlo(R) Epidural System in Europe
LIVINGSTON, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / February 18, 2020 / Milestone Scientific Inc. (NYSE American:MLSS), a developer of computerized drug delivery instruments that provide painless and precise injections, today announced that the new pre-assembled disposable kit for the CompuFlo® Epidural System has received CE Mark approval in Europe through the Company's supplier.
Leonard Osser, Interim Chief Executive Officer of Milestone Scientific, stated, "This CE Mark approval overcomes an important hurdle to commercialization in Europe. Based on market feedback, it was evident that anesthesiologists using our instrument preferred to have the disposable kit pre-assembled before packaging to save valuable minutes in the operatory. Albeit a modest change, this modification required us to secure regulatory approval in Europe, which we have now achieved."
