MedicaMetrix Announces CE Mark Approval for ProstaMetrix

This next-generation technology allows physicians to accurately measure the volume of the prostate gland using a minimally invasive medical device.

BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS (August 26, 2021) –  MedicaMetrix, Inc., today announced receiving CE mark approval for ProstaMetrix™, a minimally invasive medical device utilizing a fingertip optical encoder, associated controller and battery pack. This approval allows MedicaMetrix to progress its plans for international expansion.

ProstaMetrix enables early evaluation of prostate health through accurate volumetric measurements, differentiating patients at higher risk and mitigating uncertainty. Patients benefit by avoiding invasive, higher-risk procedures, having better care management for both prostate cancer and BPH and thus, a better quality of life.

The CE marking confirms the ProstaMetrix system meets all the requirements of the European Medical Devices Directive and follows the company’s recent ISO 13485:2016 certification for Medical Device and Quality Management Systems.

“CE mark approval allows MedicaMetrix to market and distribute ProstaMetrix in the European Union and many other countries around the world that recognize the CE mark,” Satish Vankayalapati, Chairman and Founder of MedicaMetrix stated. “We have reached another significant milestone as we work to advance prostate health management globally.”

ProstaMetrix’s multiple technological innovations allow it to:

  • Identify less invasive diagnostic and treatment options for patients, including active surveillance.
  • Identify higher-risk patients for earlier intervention and biopsy as needed.
  • Ability to focus biopsies and invasive therapies on patients that need it.

“The ProstaMetrix device will truly redefine how patients and physicians view men’s health generally and the treatment of prostate cancer specifically,” said Peter Madras, M.D., Chief Medical Officer of MedicaMetrix, “Because our device transforms the physical examination of the prostate into a quantitative, reproducible measurement in a manner completely transparent to the patient, with instant information, doctors and their patients will be better informed and empowered to make the best treatment plans.”
