Xoft prepares brachytherapy product for Canada
InSite One is purchasing IBM storage and servers for its primary data center in Connecticut. Over the next three to five years, the company expects to replace and expand its existing storage and servers there to more than 1 petabyte. IBM will supply IBM System x Servers and DS3200 Storage systems. The total value of the agreement is pegged at more than $15 million. The two companies will also collaborate on client enterprise storage and archiving opportunities in which InSite One sells services and IBM sells storage and infrastructure solutions.
Regulators in Canada have granted a medical device license for the sale in that country of Xoft's Axxent Electronic Brachytherapy System. The system delivers localized, nonradioactive, isotope-free radiation treatment in minimally shielded clinical settings. It has been commercially available in the U.S. since 2006 under an FDA clearance for the treatment of early stage breast cancer, endometrial cancer, and skin and surface indications.
