First CE Mark for Patient Kits as Medical Devices Obtained by MedTrace

CEO Ann Kristin Led and CTO Lars Trolle in front of MedTrace’s automated manufacturing system (P3 MT-100) that produces, doses, and injects 15O-water. The now CE marked Patient Kits connect the P3 MT-100 to the patient via a venflon.

MedTrace recently gained its first CE mark for two of its medical devices less than 12 months after submitting the technical file. Obtaining the European CE mark demonstrates the company’s commitment and ability to successfully and in a short time bring a product from research and development to a commercial launch, says Senior Director of QA & RA at MedTrace, Maja Damby Carøe.

With great anticipation, MedTrace reveals today that the company has obtained the MDR Certification and its first CE mark for its patient kits.

The medical devices are part of MedTrace’s automated manufacturing solution for producing, dosing, and injecting 15O-water to patients during PET exams.

Senior Director of QA & RA at MedTrace, Maja Damby Carøe, says:

“I am immensely proud of our achievement. Receiving the MDR Certificate and the first CE mark proves that MedTrace has the team and processes in place to generate extensive technical documentation, solve complex uncertainties in due time, and finally achieve market clearance for medical devices.”

“As a young pharma and medical device company, the first CE mark is a major advancement for us and the groundwork is now laid for the market clearance of our entire 15O-water solution,” says Maja Damby Carøe.

The now CE marked Patient Kits connect the company’s automated manufacturing system (P3 MT-100) to the patient via a venflon. The Patient Kits along with the P3 MT-100, are currently in use at several university hospitals in the U.S. and Europe as part of the company’s phase III clinical trial.

Market Clearance of aQuant is Expected Next

MedTrace is also in the final stages of developing its evaluation software, aQuant. It is expected that this software will offer analysis of the quantitative myocardial blood flow during PET exams with 15O-water. MedTrace anticipates celebrating aQuant as its next market clearance achievement.
