Hansen Medical, a developer of catheters and catheter-based technologies, is set to exhibit its Magellan Robotic System at the Leipzig Interventional Course (LINC) from 25 - 28 January 2011 in Leipzig, Germany..
Hansen will also showcase its NorthStar Robotic Catheter which is designed to work in conjuction with the Magellan Robotic System.
Both Robotic, Magellan System and NorthStar Catheter are used to facilitate navigation to anatomical targets in the peripheral vasculature and provide a conduit for manual placement of therapeutic devices.
Hansen Medical president and CEO Bruce Barclay said the Magellan system and NorthStar catheter offers physicians maximum flexibility and control through independent distal tip control of a catheter and a sheath as well as through robotic manipulation of a standard guidewire from a centralized, remote workstation.
"This proprietary technology may also provide physicians important clinical benefits by allowing precise and predictable catheter navigation of peripheral vessels," Barclay said.
The company said both Magellan and NorthStar systems have received CE mark and are 510(k) pending in the US.
