Stereotaxis initiates shipments of the Epoch electrophysiology platform


Friday, 16 Dec 2011 10:32

Stereotaxis has started shipments of the Epoch platform, its comprehensive solution for the electrophysiology (EP) lab that is designed to increase efficiency in procedures with a fully-remote, networked robotic and magnetic navigation system. 


Initial shipments include system upgrades to the new generation Epoch platform from the Niobe II navigation system for customers in the USA and Europe. The company also announced the installation of the Vdrive Duo mechanical arm robotic navigation system, as part of the Epoch upgrades in Europe. The Vdrive Duo arm allows physicians to remotely manipulate a growing array of devices, such as the loop diagnostic catheter and sheath, while also manipulating the magnetic catheter.


The Epoch platform is designed to improve efficiency and enhance workflow by allowing the physician to control all aspects of the procedure remotely. It combines the proven value of remote magnetic catheter control and the efficiency benefits of remote robotic device manipulation with the Vdrive mechanical arm.


“The Epoch platform has generated tremendous market excitement since its introduction at the annual Heart Rhythm Society meeting in May,” said Michael P Kaminski, president and CEO of Stereotaxis. “As expected, the initial wave of commitments is coming from current customers who see the clear benefit to upgrade their system to Epoch. Additionally, we have experienced a surge in new prospective customers visiting our headquarters to understand how Epoch would fit their EP lab needs. We are excited about the interest in Epoch from current users and the demand curve for prospective customers, and believe we are poised for strong performance in 2012.”
