Senzime granted US Patent for OnZurf Probe

Press release: Uppsala, December 23, 2020. Senzime AB (publ) today announces that the company’s Patent application has been allowed for issuance as a patent for OnZurf Probe in the US. OnZurf is a microdialysis probe designed to monitor gastro-intestinal organs such as esophagus, stomach and liver.


The OnZurf Probe was acquired by Senzime in 2016 and is based on an innovation by Dr. Pernilla Abrahamsson and clinical research at Umeå University. The development, including CE approval of OnZurf, was completed by Senzime in 2017. The probe is designed to enable continuous sampling from gastro-intestinal organs such as esophagus, stomach and liver. By monitoring the organ surface, it is possible to detect elevations in lactate and other metabolic markers as early indicators of ischemia and post-operative complications.

As of November 2020, Senzime has out licensed the OnZurf probe for the European market transferring the legal manufacturing rights and all related product liabilities to the company Moss S.p.A based outside Milano, Italy. Senzime has retained the rights to commercialization of OnZurf on all markets outside of Europe, including the US.

”OnZurf Probe is a unique product with a huge potential for early detection of serious conditions such as ischemia. This US patent will be very important in future commercialization of OnZurf on the US market”, says Pia Renaudin, CEO of Senzime.
