CLS obtains first order for its diffusor fiber, for MRI-guided laser ablation, from a leading cancer clinic in the US

Clinical Laserthermia Systems (CLS) (publ), has received its first order for the company’s product TRANBERG®|Laser Applicator Non-cooled diffusor fiber for MRI-guided laser ablation. The purchase order comes from the same leading US hospital that earlier this year bought the TRANBERG® |Mobile Laser Unit.

The background to the purchase is the hospital’s extensive operations in the area of image-guided minimal invasive treatment of tumors. Together the parties are preparing for a collaboration in order to evaluate, and further develop, CLS proprietary immunostimulating treatment, imILT®, as well as MRI-guided laser ablation. This initial order holds a value of about 50 000 SEK.

TRANBERG®|Laser Applicator Non-cooled diffusor fiber allows treatment of larger cancer tumors and can be used for imILT® as well as for MRI-guided laser ablation.

“This order launches the collaboration in the US with a very important customer of ours. The hospital represents a solid and well-known brand in the US and abroad. The symbolic value is far greater and more important than the revenue from this initial order”, said Dan Mogren, CCO at CLS. “That a leading hospital choses CLS’ diffusor fiber builds trust for our products”, concludes Dan Mogren.

CLS develops and markets the TRANBERG®|Thermal Therapy System, as well as disposable materials and methods for heat-induced immunotherapy for safe and gentle treatment of cancerous tumors. The Company recently bought the part of the German laser technology company Laser- und Medizin-Technologie GmbH (LMTB), that includes technology and development of CLS diffusor fiber. The production of the fiber is based on unique expertise in micro-structuring of laser fiber, which is the formation of the structure that gives the light its unique diffusion.

Earlier this year CLS got an FDA-clearance for the TRANBERG®|Laser Applicator Non-cooled diffusor fiber, which means that the product is ready to be marketed in the US.
