CEO Comment

US approval paves way for growth

The hard work we put into preparing and submitting a strong file to  the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)  for a US commercialization - paid off in the third quarter, with approval by the FDA of our innovative pulse biopsy system NeoNavia. The approval is a major milestone for NeoDynamics as it means we can now push forward quickly to begin introducing the system to a massive market. The US breast biopsy market is expected to reach $830 million by 2025. 

The company is working full speed to start introducing the NeoNavia biopsy system configured with its FlexiPulse probe to clinicians and potential partners in the US. The launch is scheduled for January 2023.

Our system helps clinicians address the critical issues they face in diagnosing and treating breast cancer. The FlexiPulse needle is unique – it gives control thanks to the pulses. It offers the possibility to go into difficult-to-reach places such as lymph nodes in the armpit where you have blood vessels and nerves, or take biopsies in breasts with implants – areas where you are prepared to pay for a new technology.

NeoDynamics is dedicated to delivering technology for precise, high-quality tissue samples to support the critical early detection of cancer.

We will leverage the deep experience gained in Europe with our Flexipulse probe as we accelerate in the US. We plan to work with clinics to further document the product in clinical use to support the marketing and sales strategy.

As part of our US ramp up, we announced after the end of the period a partnership with Diligent Health Solutions, which will support NeoDynamics’s US efforts with tasks such as managing medical information, reimbursement and coding services.

We also announced the hiring of Brendan Carney, who has more than 30 years’ experience in life science, as our national sales director in the US.

Europe

Our plan to launch in the US is supported by the hard work ongoing at leading clinics in Europe. In Europe we designed a study program to highlight the value of our biopsy technology in a clinical setting. The traction we built with independent advocates in Europe is crucial as we enter the US. We will continue to work hard in the key centers in the German-speaking regions as well as the UK, Ireland and Sweden.

The team in Europe continued to fine tune the product over the past months, and we are on track to resume production of the CorePulse and VacuPulse needles by the end of the year. Flexipulse, which will now be sold in the US, has not had any production challenges and is ready to go.  We still expect the CorePulse needle to remain in high demand in Europe, while the FlexiPulse and VacuPulse needles should garner more attention in the US.

Clinics in Europe remain very engaged in the product with dozens of clinics now using the system and many others running pilots. As always, the feedback we get from these clinics allows us to constantly ensure quality.
