A portable hyperthermic perfusion system that delivers and circulates heated and unheated sterile fluids to a broad population of patients has received clearance from US Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The VERATHERM Portable Hyperthermic Perfusion System, developed by ThermalTherapeutic Systems, is small, lightweight and mobile device, which provides the medical community with an economical platform for a broad population of patients for a variety of appropriate indications and treatments.

This device monitors temperature, pressure and flow allowing the physician and technician to have more control over the treatment.

Besides improving the quality of hyperthermic treatments, VERATHERM also creates opportunities for hospitals and perfusion groups to expand their services in general.

The system is expected to be launched in April 2010.
