Redsense receives TGA approval and market authorization for Australia and New Zealand
Redsense Medical today announces that the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) has granted regulatory approval for the Redsense System. Redsense’s blood loss alarm is thus authorized to be sold in the Australian and New Zealand markets.
Redsense’s distributor will commence the introduction of the Redsense System in clinics as soon as the prevailing situation allows visits to perform demonstration tests. Considering Australia’s geographic extent, the Company also considers the country a key market for the future introduction of the Redsense Clamp accessory, which will increase patient safety even further.
“We are thrilled to achieve this milestone. There are close to 12,000 hemodialysis patients distributed across Australia and New Zealand, and following the market authorization disclosed today, this patient population will now be able to gain access to safer treatment. In addition, the extra layer of protection offered by the Redsense device will facilitate the adoption of more convenient home treatment and reduce the need to travel long distances to clinics,” says Patrik Byhmer, CEO of Redsense Medical AB.
Today’s announcement follows Redsense’s recently announced conclusion of a distributor agreement for Australia and New Zealand with Regional Health Care Group, which was disclosed on March 25, 2021.
