The French Quantel medical, with the assistance of the Ukrainian Embassy in France, donated to the Institute of Eye Diseases and Tissue Therapy "Filatov" in Odessa, as a humanitarian aid, a new probe (sensor) for the Aviso apparatus for ultrasonic biomicroscopy of the anterior eye.


The famous Odessa clinic reported that up to 5,000 patients need to be examined on the Aviso device annually, in particular, to detect and monitor the state of intraocular tumors and neoplasms of the conjunctiva of the eye.

In addition, the need for probe-assisted examination increases during the war for patients with trauma, foreign bodies in the anterior part of the eye, chemical and thermal burns.

In the spring of this year, the institute had an urgent need for a new sensor, since the existing one actually failed. The sensor for each device is made individually.

During the war, the clinic was not able to update the equipment on its own, in particular, due to funding limitations, the lack of a sensor in Ukraine, disruption of supply chains and delivery difficulties.

Administration, doctors and patients of the clinic of the Institute of Eye Diseases and Tissue Therapy named after Filatov wholeheartedly express their gratitude to the General Director of Quantel medical, Mr. Jean-Marc GENDRE / Jean-Marc GENDRE and the company’s employees for the provided humanitarian assistance and the Embassy of Ukraine in France for their invaluable help and support.
