Microline Pentax now Microline Surgical

Microline Pentax (Beverly, Massachusetts), a manufacturer of reposable instruments for minimally invasive surgery, said that it has completed the change of its corporate name to Microline Surgical. The company will also issue a new logo and launch a rebranded web site (www.microlinesurgical.com).

"Our tremendous growth, organically and through the acquisition of Starion Instruments earlier this year, has expanded our offerings and broadened our reach into the surgical marketplace," said Jean-Luc Boulnois, chairman, president/CEO. "While the Pentax name represented our past, the Microline Surgical name reflects our current leadership position in the field of laparoscopy and our future goals as we expand into other surgical specialties, such as gynecology, urology, otolaryngology, and cardiac, particularly with innovative minimally invasive instrumentation."
