SonoSite’s NanoMaxx Enters U.S.
The FDA has given SonoSite the go-ahead to begin marketing its new NanoMaxx ultrasound system. The company said U.S. customer deliveries will begin shipping immediately. International deliveries began in June. Featuring one-button optimization technology, the six pound NanoMaxx system will be marketed as a point-of-care system to hospitals and physician offices. The system, which boots up in less than 20 seconds, comes with five transducers to support thoracic assessment for pathology, vascular access, and needle aspirations and injections, as well as abdominal, cardiac, nerve, OB/Gyn, musculoskeletal, small parts and vascular scanning. NanoMaxx can be wall mounted, placed on an exam table with kickstand attached, used from a floor-based stand, or hand carried.
