Endomag

sentimag-2

Taking the Sentimag system from concept development to volume manufacturing

Overview

Endomag is on a mission is to improve the standard of cancer care for everyone, everywhere, by providing more accurate, convenient, and less-invasive solutions for diagnosis and treatment. The Sentimag® localization system, Magseed® markers, and Magtrace® lymphatic tracer enable physicians to carry out tumor localisations and breast cancer staging with one platform.

By adding greater flexibility and precision and removing the need for both wires and radioactivity, the platform is revolutionizing breast cancer care. It has been used in over 130,000+ procedures across 550+ hospitals in 40+ countries.

Requirements

At the start of the project, Endomag was a small, UK-based start-up spun out from University College London (UCL) and University of Houston, Texas. They had developed an initial concept which, whilst highly sensitive, required the use of liquid nitrogen and a superconducting quantum interface device (SQUID). ITL was tasked with transforming the proof of principle prototype into a commercially viable, production-ready, benchtop medical device.

Results

We forged a strong relationship with Endomag throughout R&D and the early stages of manufacturing. From prototyping to full-scale manufacturing, here’s how we supported the development of their medical device:

  • Producing engineering prototypes to prove the concepts for non-SQUID-dependent electronics solutions.
  • Proof of principle work on the design and manufacturability of the probe.
  • Industrial design of the aesthetic and ergonomic elements of the Sentimag® and the solid-state probe.
  • Regulatory assistance for safety testing, EMC testing, and guidance throughout the CE marking process.
  • Design and integration of all required software and firmware, including the graphical user interface (GUI)
  • Tooling for manufacture.
  • Pilot manufacturing supported by R&D and production engineering.
  • Full volume manufacture.
  • Provide training and servicing manuals for Endomag’s major distributor.

We continue to support Endomag with the ongoing development of the Sentimag® platform and remain their trusted contract manufacturer as production volumes increase.

Eric Mayes, CEO, Endomag, commented, “ITL helped develop our first medical device in a collaborative R&D project. That product is now in the market, and sales are growing, and we have found ITL to be capable of supporting our growth every step of the way. We are not (yet) their largest customer, but ITL’s dedication to Endomag is as if they are part of our team.
