LifeScience Alley Selects Nonin to Showcase Innovative NIRS Technology
Nonin Medical, Inc., a leading innovator of noninvasive physiological monitoring solutions, has been selected by LifeScience Alley® to exhibit its next-generation EQUANOX™ regional oximetry (rSO2 ) technology at the New Technology Showcase during the association’s annual conference on December 9, 2009.
One of eight companies chosen, Nonin Medical will demonstrate the revolutionary EQUANOX™ near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) which measures the balance of oxygenated and deoxygenated hemoglobin (HbO2 and Hb) in the cerebral tissue. A powerful tool to monitor critical organ health, this technology was launched in the new Model 7600 system – offering accurate real-time monitoring of brain oxygenation and provides early indication of oxygen desaturation that could lead to stroke or other neurological injuries. Nonin’s next-generation EQUANOX NIRS technology has been demonstrated and implemented in hospital systems worldwide.
The New Technology Showcase is a forum for select companies around the world to exhibit innovative new technologies intended for medical devices, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and health care delivery segments. Nonin Medical was elected based on the innovation of its EQUANOX™ technology, its market potential, and the impact it represents to the life sciences and health care delivery. “Through the New Technology Showcase and Annual Conference & Expo, LifeScience Alley strives to highlight cutting-edge life science technologies representing truly novel therapies and technologies for the life sciences and health care delivery. This year, our expert industry judges have identified Nonin Medical and seven other organizations as innovators of ground-breaking and life-saving technologies.” – Ryan Baird, Communications Manager, LifeScience Alley.
