XPS™ contract signed with leading hospital in Alabama
The XPS™ is the first sold to Alabama, USA. Delivery and installation of the XPS™ will take place in July 2016.
University of Alabama Birmingham is responsible for the only well-developed lung transplantation program in Alabama. The center has decided to purchase a XPS™ to establish an EVLP program and further develop the lung transplantation program.
XPS™ is the only CE-marked and FDA approved (Humanitarian Device Exemptions approval) integrated system on the market today which gives the user the flexibility to perform evaluation of lungs before transplantation through a standardized and simplified procedure. Use of XPS™ has shown good clinical results at 18 clinics in the US, many of which are national leaders in their field. Six XPS™ contracts have now been signed by European clinics, giving them access to the XPS™ system for lung transplantation, and the company notes continuing high interest for the XPS™ in the US and in Europe.
“We are delighted and proud that EVLP with XPS™ and STEEN Solution™ will be used for evaluating lungs for transplantation at the very well reputed University of Alabama Birmingham. This is the hospital performing lung transplantation in the state of Alabama, USA. The company sees a continued high interest from American and European clinics to set up XVIVOs XPS ™ system to facilitate lung evaluation with the aim of using more of the donated lungs”, says Magnus Nilsson, CEO of XVIVO Perfusion.
