In February we reported that MBBP client MindChild Medical Inc. had filed for a Pre-Marketing Notification Application (510(k)) with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for its non-invasive fetal heart rate monitor, MERIDIAN™. On September 25, MindChild announced that the FDA has cleared MERIDIAN™ and anticipates it entering the U.S. markets in the near future. Bill Edelman, CEO of MindChild, had this to say of the achievement:
We are thrilled to have reached this milestone. MERIDIAN is the first in a series of non-invasive fetal monitor technologies developed by MindChild that are intended to provide the healthcare community enhanced monitoring capabilities for both fetal heart rate and fetal ECG. We anticipate significant clinical interest for this innovative technology in the markets where MERIDIAN will be cleared for commercial distribution.
