Solna, Sweden, October 6 th, 2010 -- CMA Microdialysis AB (CMA) today announced the introduction of the new CE-approved EirusTM Tissue monitoring system. Eirus enables second-by-second monitoring of organ specific
biochemistry in the hospital setting. Monitoring tissue chemistry provides early warning of critical
conditions allowing for preemptive interventions and improved patient care.
Millions of patients develop local ischemia in the brain and other critical tissues following surgery
and other types of injuries. Cerebral ischemia is the third leading cause of death in the Western
Ischemia occurs when there is insufficient blood flow to an organ to meet the metabolic demand. It is
therefore highly essential to continuously monitor the metabolic state of a specific organ at risk,
rather than just global biomarkers in the blood.
The new Eirus
TM Tissue system monitors biochemistry locally in specific tissue and in the brain. Eirus
continuously monitors interstitial glucose and lactate by using minimally invasive microdialysis
catheters connected to the Eirus disposable biosensor.
“Following years of research & development, it is an honor to introduce CMA’s 4th
generation system representing a major landmark in clinical monitoring as the first truly continuous tissue monitoring
system intended for ICU use”, comments Philip Siberg, CEO of CMA.
Eirus Tissue is CE-approved for monitoring adipose tissue, resting skeleton muscle and the brain.
In 2009, the Eirus platform gained initial CE-approval for continuous glucose and lactate monitoring
in blood. During 2009-2010, numerous clinical studies have verified the accuracy and performance of
the system with excellent outcome. Eirus Tissue, the next natural step of the platform, will be
selectively launched in Scandinavia during 2010 and broader in Europe during 2011.
