Bovie Medical Acquires Boston Scientific Technology

Electrosurgical product manufacturer Bovie Medical Corp. (Melville, NY) is acquiring radio frequency technology from Boston Scientific. The deal involves the technology, patents, and assets related to using conductive sintered steel as an electrode for RF cutting and coagulation. The technology aims to decrease blood loss, save hospitals money, and speed up procedure times. It can be used for tumor therapy in the lever, pancreas, and kidneys, as well as for orthopedic and blood vessel sealing.

Bovie gave Boston Scientific a license to use the technology outside of the fields mentioned above until 2016.
