”During the first quarter of 2015, we have started to see the results of SciBase’s transformation into a more sales-focused company. Our sales have increased significantly during the first quarter and this is mainly due to a growing usage in our key market Germany. An important driver for the increased acceptance of Nevisense has been the publication of our pivotal clinical trial in the British Journal of Dermatology, which validated our product, and was the largest study of its kind. With Nevisense, we address many of the challenges within health care related to the detection of malignant melanoma,” says Simon Grant CEO of SciBase.

About SciBase and Nevisense
SciBase AB is a Swedish medical technology company, headquartered in Stockholm, that has developed a unique point-of-care device for the accurate detection of malignant melanoma. Its product, Nevisense, helps doctors to detect malignant melanoma, the most dangerous type of skin cancer. SciBase was founded by Stig Ollmar, Associate Professor at The Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. Nevisense is based on substantial research and has achieved excellent results in the largest clinical study ever conducted on the detection of malignant melanoma. Nevisense is CE marked in Europe, has TGA approval in Australia, and is awaiting FDA clearance in the United States. Nevisense is based on a technology called Electrical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS), which uses the varying electrical properties of human tissue to categorize cellular structures and thereby detect malignancies.
