ILT ANNOUNCES FDA CLEARANCE FOR ARGON CURING LASER

 SALT LAKE CITY, May 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Ion Laser Technology (AMEX: ILT.EC) has received clearance from the Food and Drug Administration to market its laser-based high speed curing handpiece -- the ACL-5500. This product will enhance the speed and the quality with which dentists will be able to cure restorative composite materials. The speed will enable the dentist to become more productive, while offering a better quality restoration to his patient.
 The ACL-5500 has been under research and development for more than two years. It has been developed with information gathered from the National Institute of Standards, Temple University and two research grants. The handpiece and delivery system are currently patent pending, as is a root canal procedure which can be performed with the handpiece.
 The complete curing system will be fully integrated into the dental suite and will allow the dentist to operate up to four dental operatory stations from one power source. The high-speed curing handpiece will also allow the dentist to place and cure fillings in a more precise manner than is possible at present. The fully sterilizable handpiece and integrated system will allow dental composites to obtain new levels of curing quality. The instrument's improved curing ability has been compared to the improvement offered by laser printers over the old mimeograph machines.
 Ion Laser Technology is a manufacturer of industrial, scientific and medical lasers with manufacturing facilities in the United States and mainland China. ILT medical products are marketed through the company's medical division, ILT Systems.
