Medical Technical Products was established in 1984, originally supplying OEM phacoemulsifiers to ophthalmic companies which marketed these phacoemulsifiers under various brand names. In order to pass maximum cost savings onto the customer, MTP launched its own phacoemulsifier, the Model 2000 Ophthalmic Surgical System (Model 2000), receiving US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in 1994 to manufacture and to market the Model 2000.

The FDA has certified that the Model 2000 can be legally exported worldwide per Certificate to Foreign Government. MTP's manufacturing site is subject to periodic inspections. All MTP's inspections have revealed compliance with current good manufacturing practices.

Today, MTP is proud to supply its affordable phacoemulsifier worldwide. Further, the Model 2000 is supplied complying to ISO 13485:2004 (Quality Management System) to ensure the highest quality. In the special case of European Union countries, MTP also complies with the European Union’s Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC (CE Mark ), thus extending MTP’s international reach. With a growing network of valued distributors, MTP can promptly satisfy cataract surgeons’ phacoemulsifier needs.
