Israeli corporation Sino-Lite has acquired dental laser manufacturer Light Instruments for an undisclosed sum.

Previously owned by Syneron Medical, Light Instruments produces next generation dental laser technology for hard and soft tissue treatments.

The company produces LiteTouch laser-in-handpiece technology, which is claimed to be the world's most versatile non-fibre, Er: YAG dental laser device.

Light Instruments has developed a small, simple and portable laser for dental procedures. It is simple to use compared against the bulky and complicated equipment.

Sino-Lite CEO Eric Ben Mayor said: "The acquisition of Light Instruments is the first step within a sequence of acquisitions of high technology companies and innovative companies that the group intends to acquire in the Israeli market.

"The new leadership will drive the LiteTouch™ technology brand forward and further develop its valued innovative contribution to the dentistry world.

"Sino-Lite Ltd. shall increase Light Instruments' workforce and expand the variety of high-end advanced Technology Dental Lasers offered, thus affirming its position as a worldwide global leader."

Sino-Lite is engaged in the acquisitions, development and management of dental and medical companies across the globe.

The company is headed by China-based Sino-Ita International Trading Company, which distributes Italian brand NewTom Cone Beam 3D Imaging in China and South East Asia.
