Press release: Uppsala, March 29, 2019. Senzime AB (publ) today announces that their distributor in Korea, Unimedics, has placed its first order for TetraGraph and its associated consumables at an order value of 1 million SEK due to be delivered during this week.
Senzime signed a distribution agreement with Unimedics in March 2018 communicating expected launch during 2019. This order is the first out of a guaranteed sales target as market launch is approaching.
There are over 3000 hospitals in South Korea and annually 1.3 million operations are performed with anesthesia, of which muscle relaxants are used in more than half of them. TetraGraph is used for monitoring of this patient category. For each monitoring occasion, in addition to the instrument itself, TetraSens is used which is a disposable sensor also developed and sold by Senzime. This initial order includes 50 TetraGraph instruments. Senzime will train 70 sales representatives from Unimedics in June.
“We have an actual medical need in an area with up to 40% complication rates. During this year we have worked closely with our Korean distributor, and we are pleased that sales are about to start. We expect further orders from Korea before year end” says Pia Renaudin, CEO of Senzime AB.
