Abstract
The overall objective of this 6-month Phase 1 project is to evolve the prototype of MULTI4, the new reliable cystoscopy instrument combining multiple improved functions.
Our innovative system covers each stage of the cystoscopy procedure, starting from levelling tissue by special injection canula, providing local anaesthesia, offering a possibility to collect multiple samples of bladder cancer tissue without any damage of the sample. This prevents from resettling on the other part of bladder, which constitutes an important risk with state-of-the-art procedures. The next step is fully controlled automatic sample aspiration and storage system with transparent container and separate chambers for each sample.
Our product is a game changer in terms of time and cost. Due to quick and safe procedure we can lower the cost of personnel and infrastructure. Only those few features can solve the problem of crowded hospitals and save more lives due to quick and effective diagnostics and new cure possibility. Our product is the missing link that will bring effective, fast (15-45 minutes instead of days) and patient-friendly bladder cancer diagnosis, setting the new standard for this method.
The MULTI4 is developed as a result of many years of clinical experience and R&D in mechanical engineering and physiology. This combination has laid the foundation for high performance of a solution that clearly outpaces all current products in terms of reliability, functionality, cost and user-friendliness. This generates unique benefits to individual patients, doctors, as well as to healthcare system as a whole.
