Senzime is granted additional patent for OnZurf Probe

Uppsala, 24 May 2017. Senzime AB’s (publ) application regarding a new Swedish patent for OnZurf Probe has been approved, strengthening Senzime’s existing patent portfolio. The Onzurf Probe is a new generation of microdialysis probes that enable organ-specific biological monitoring of various organs such and the bowel, liver and kidney after surgery. The technology makes it possible to monitor the organs’ healing process and to provide early warning signs of complications such as ischemia and anastomotic failure.

Senzime has developed user-friendly products for continuous collection and measurement of glucose and lactate in biological fluids such as blood and tissues. These measurements are important and often critical for surgical patients who are at risk of postoperative complications such as ischemia (lack of oxygen) and anastomotic breakdown and leakage (failure of organ connections that lead to tissue death).

CliniSenz system consists of OnZurf Probe and CliniSenz Analyzer. The system makes it possible to continuously collect and analyze samples taken from the surface of an organ. Currently, the OnZurf Probe is used in a study of patients undergoing surgery for esophageal cancer, a surgical procedure that is performed on half a million patients worldwide, every year. In Sweden tens of thousands of cancer operations are performed annually; effective monitoring systems such as the CliniSenz system can help reduce the number of painful and costly complications, improving patient safety and decreasing healthcare costs.

"The granted patents strengthen our patent portfolio for both OnZurf Probe and the complete CliniSenz system. We remain confident that we have highly attractive products and that we are on the right market at the right time. We have signed a breakthrough agreement for the Japanese market, strengthened our organization, we face a broad market introduction, and we look forward to continued effective development in 2017”, says Senzime CEO, Lena Söderström.
