Rare Earth Medical wins SBIR grant from NIH for fiber delivery system

The National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) awarded Rare Earth Medical (Dennis, MA) a $748,000 Phase II SBIR contract for the commercialization of a fiber optic laser light delivery system to be used for therapeutic treatments in oncology and cardiology. The system includes diffusers, known as Lightstics, that spread laser output along a cylindrical geometry. The two-year contract will fund further development of the technology, including testing at the Roswell Park
