SciBase expands to Austria with distributor Intramed
SciBase, a Swedish medical technology company has signed an exclusive distribution contract with Austrian distributor Intramed Handels Ges.m.b.H.
Initial sales effort of SciBase’s product Nevisense – a point-of-care device for the accurate detection of malignant melanoma – will focus on the private dermatologists in Austria. “We specialize in finding new innovative technologies that improve health care for both patients and physicians. Skin cancer is a growing global health problem and during our evaluation of Nevisense we received excellent feedback about the instrument from the dermatologists we talked to. Nevisense is a perfect fit for us and is complementary to our existing product range”, says Manfred Schartner, CEO at Intramed. “This agreement takes us one step further in our global expansion and commercialization. In Austria we are focusing on establishing our method among private dermatologists first as the public sector usually takes longer to adopt new technologies. We see good potential and interest for Nevisense in Austria”, says Simon Grant, CEO at SciBase.
