Milestone Scientific (MLSS): Developing Innovative Diagnostic and Therapeutic Injection Technologies to Make Injections Precise, Efficient, and Virtually Painless
Milestone Scientific (MLSS) is a biomedical technology research and development company that patents, designs, develops and commercializes innovative diagnostic and therapeutic injection technologies and instruments for medical, dental, cosmetic and veterinary applications. Milestone's computer-controlled systems are designed to make injections precise, efficient, and virtually painless. Milestone’s proprietary DPS® Dynamic Pressure Sensing technology® platform advances the development of next-generation devices, regulating flow rate and monitoring pressure from the tip of the needle, through platform extensions for local anesthesia for subcutaneous drug delivery, with specific applications for cosmetic botulinum toxin injections, epidural space identification in regional anesthesia procedures, and intra-articular joint injections.
Milestone Scientific CEO Interview: Game-Changing Injection Technology
MLSS is a leading medical research and development company that designs and patents innovative injection technology. The Company’s clinically validated, patented, computercontrolled systems make injections precise, efficient, and virtually painless, addressing unmet needs and providing a potential new standard of care in anesthesia. Backed by nine peerreviewed published studies, the Company’s CompuFlo technology addresses epidural placement failures. Epidural procedures are one of the fastest growing procedures globally with an estimated 11+ million epidural procedures performed annually in U.S. and 30+ million worldwide. U.S. and international sales channels buildout ongoing and supported by a definitive economic study completed at the University of Texas demonstrating cost-savings versus current standard of care. MLSS reported revenue of $8.4 million in 2019, and the Company successfully completed an above-market offering in April 2020, raising $4.7 million
