Medical laser specialist PhotoMedex is set to make Photo Therapeutics’ Omnilux line of light-based therapy products available to US dermatologists. PhotoMedex will distribute the Omnilux Blue for the treatment of acne and actinic keratosis, the Omnilux Plus for wound healing and skin rejuvenation, and the Omnilux Revive, which can be used in combination with Omnilux blue for acne or in combination with Omnilux plus for wound healing. All the Omnilux devices incorporates a narrowband light-emitting diode (LED) technology. This distribution deal follows an acquisition agreement in the fourth quarter of 2008 between the two firms, in which PhotoMedex agreed to buy Photo Therapeutics for around $13m (see Clinica No 1319, p 13). Financial details were not revealed.
