MAVIG, founded in 1921, designs, manufactures and markets personal protection devices and X-Ray accessories, as well as ceiling- and table-mounted equipment. The patented MAVIG ceiling tracks and suspension systems, like its modern LCD-monitor suspensions comply with the latest requirements of the industry and are certified according to the EU Medicinal Product Directives and the EU Directive for Personal Safety Gear. MAVIG develops and distributes the VivaScope, which uses Confocal Laser Scanning Microscopy to analyse tissue. Standard biopsies can be processed and imaged with the VivaScope in less than 5 minutes. This allows for radical changes in the surgery workflow: for example, the diagnosis of urothelial carcinoma in bladder and ureter biopsies is feasible as well as instant examination of prostatic margins during robot-assisted radical prostatectomy.
