NeoDynamics' sales focus in the first half of 2022

Innovation is at the heart of everything we do at NeoDynamics and no better evidence of that can be seen in our FlexiPulse needle. Developed by physicians, with the goal to improve how biopsies are performed.  FlexiPulse features a unique open-tip, large sampling chamber and these attributes combined with our patented pulse technology, allow for large, high-quality tissue samples to be taken from places generally considered to be difficult to access.

We continue to gather extremely valuable clinical experience and data with FlexiPulse and the results from our PULSE study showed fantastic benefit in many complex, high risk cases, such as procedures close to nerves and blood vessels.

With excellent data to support our sales efforts, our focus is on demonstrating the benefits of our innovative FlexiPulse needle. This area is the key to physicians understand the technology, it’s development and have the proper chance to get to experience it.  

In the UK we are currently working closely with Wycombe, Cheltenham and Edinburgh hospitals with another 18 centers in the pipeline to start evaluating NeoNavia this year. In the German-speaking part of Europe, NeoNavia is already present in Erkelenz, Lucerne, Cologne and evaluations are ongoing in 13 centers. In addition, we now have an oral presentation of our PULSE data in Savannah Georgia in May - among purely American research results there is thus a Swedish innovation and its clinical results will be presented. Axillary lymph nodes in the armpit and axillary biopsies are "hot" topics these days!

Anna Eriksrud, CEO NeoDynamics

The Western General breast unit in Edinburgh is one of the centers participating in our COMPULSE study. Here, senior radiologist Dr. Melanie Smith, comments on her experience of NeoDynamics' innovative Pulse Biopsy System, NeoNavia. 

“Having worked as a breast radiologist for over 25 years I was excited to hear about a new technology for taking USG biopsies and finally it’s here, and in the department, where we get to use it. My first impressions of NeoNavia are that it is very quick and easy to set up and use. Pulsing the probe, to, and through lesions is a new experience for me and I can see where, particularly in dense breasts and hard lesions, the pulses will make a difference. The open-tip FlexiPulse probe which we will use as part of the COMPULSE study is a true innovation and I can already see that having an open-tip probe with a large sampling chamber will be advantageous when it comes to safely taking samples in difficult to access locations.

It’s early days for us using NeoNavia and I’m excited to try all 3 probes, from there will we see what the system truly offers the department and patients”

FlexiPulse – an open-tip, front-loaded needle

The FlexiPulse needle is intended for ultrasound-guided breast biopsy and particularly well suited for technically challenging biopsies such as in axillary lymph nodes and dense breast tissue. This needle has been specifically developed to maximise tissue yield whilst causing the least possible damage to surrounding tissue. In pre-clinical studies, the FlexiPulse needle has provided larger samples than current core needles. 

Design and features:

  • The outer cannula is shaped as an open, hollow front-loaded tube with a slightly sharpened inside edge.
  • The inner solid part has a sharp tip.
  • The needle diameter is 14G.
  • The sampling chamber size is 30 mm.
  • All needle functions are controlled via buttons that are activated on the hand-held driver.
