Scio Diamond Demonstrates Its Commitment To Advancing Its Patented Technology In The Healthcare Industry

Stocks in this article: SCIO

GREER, SC, Oct. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - Scio Diamond Corporation (OTC:BB: SCIO) is pleased to announce its commitment to advancing its Patented Diamond Technology in the Healthcare Industry by shifting its Surgical Blade Project from R&D to now presenting its technology for future sales in medical devices.

With product in hand, Scio Diamond will now begin to explore, identify, and provide diamond products to potential customers who will customize the diamonds to meet the needs of their device products specifically for the medical industry.

Scio Diamond CEO, Joseph Lancia explains,  "We grow real diamonds in our labs with our patented technology, and as such, we have the ability to not only produce high grade gemstone products for the jewelry market, but also develop products to client specification for industries such as the medical industry."

According to our research, diamond is the only substance known that can maintain a cold-contact surface while effectively transmitting laser energy.  The density of its molecular structure permits it to sharpen to an astonishingly fine edge of 25 Nanometer.  The diamond blade, which is forty times (40x) sharper than a traditional steel scalpel and durable enough to last up to 200 full surgical procedures, offers surgeons the ability to operate cost-effectively with great precision and improved surgical outcomes.    Clinical studies have shown that when the Diamond Laser Surgical System is used, surgery time is significantly reduced and wounds heal faster and with less exuberance and discomfort due to reduced swelling and bruising.  The Scio Diamond Blade product, which will be ready for market will initially benefit Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dermatology, ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat), Neurosurgery, Pediatric Surgery, and Orthopedic Surgery.

The company will initially target approximately 33,000 office-based surgery practices in the US that perform cosmetic surgery as well as expand to other emerging markets worldwide.
