Enova agrees to manufacture Catheter Advancement System for Stereotaxis

Enova Medical Technologies : 28 November, 2007  (New Product)
Enova Medical Technologies has signed a manufacturing service agreement with Stereotaxis to produce the Stereotaxis Cardiodrive Catheter Advancement System (CAS).
Stereotaxis designs, manufactures and markets an advanced cardiology instrument control system for use in a hospital's interventional surgical suite to enhance the treatment of coronary artery disease and arrhythmias. As one of Stereotaxis’ products, the Cardiodrive CAS automatically advances and retracts compatible magnetic electrophysiology (EP) mapping and ablation catheters when used in conjunction with a Stereotaxis Magnetic Navigation System (MNS).

“We are proud to partner with Stereotaxis in manufacturing this state-of-the-art medical device,” said Roger Heegaard, president of Enova. “We consider earning the confidence of an innovative, high-growth medical device company such as Stereotaxis to be an accolade to the quality of our manufacturing services.”

Enova’s role in producing the Cardiodrive CAS will include overseeing, coordinating and managing the procurement process, as well as handling product manufacturing, final assembly work, packaging, labeling, and sterilization procedures.

“Our Magnetic Navigation System is used in some of the most challenging coronary and vascular treatments performed today and safety and performance of every component is critical. When selecting a manufacturing partner, it is essential for us to find a company that shares our commitment to providing the highest quality product with superior customer service and manufacturing practices. Without question, Enova is that type of company,” said Gene Berghoff, Stereotaxis senior director of outsourcing. “We’re pleased to work with an organization that believes quality and responsiveness go hand-in-hand.”

The Stereotaxis System is designed to enable physicians to complete more complex interventional procedures by providing image-guided delivery of catheters and guidewires through the blood vessels and chambers of the heart to treatment sites.

This is achieved using computer-controlled, externally-applied magnetic fields that guides the motion of the working tip of the Catheter or guidewire, resulting in improved navigation, shorter procedure time and reduced X-ray exposure. The core components of the Stereotaxis system have received regulatory clearance in the USA, Europe, Canada and other countries throughout the world.
