Osprey Medical (ASX:OSP) is pleased to announce a collaboration with GE Healthcare on Osprey’s Be Kind to Kidneys™ campaign. The campaign aims to increase awareness of strategies to help address acute kidney injury (AKI) following normal heart imaging procedures (angiograms) in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD). As part of the campaign, Osprey Medical and GE Healthcare will sponsor a number of educational programs and seminars for healthcare professionals on how to address the risk of AKI.
San Antonio’s University Hospital is one of the first hospitals to use a device called DyeVert Plus. Bluetooth technology embedded in the syringe uses wireless transmission to track exactly how much dye is used for each image. Tests of the new device show it can reduce the amount of dye used in heart procedures on kidney patients by as much as 40 percent.
Osprey Medical today announced that it has received US FDA 510(k) clearance for its advanced DyeVert™ PLUS Contrast Reduction System. This new platform augments Osprey’s current technology with the capability to actively manage dye administration during coronary interventions.
DyeVert PLUS received European CE Mark in 4Q 2016. The company further validated its dye savings capabilities through initial market testing with multiple physicians in Germany and Italy, which showed a 44% contrast reduction. The product received strong positive feedback on the utility of real-time contrast monitoring and ease-of-use.
Osprey Medical is pleased to announce the expansion of its portfolio with introduction of the DyeVert™ PLUS Contrast Modulation/Monitoring System. This new platform integrates the current DyeVert technology with substantial patient management and monitoring capabilities. The system has received European CE Mark and FDA clearance is pending. The Company anticipates US availability Q1 2017.
